ABOUT ME

Jonathan Blake is an acoustic singer-songwriter from Leicester, currently based in London. Using live loop pedals and other effects across his songs, Jonathan can range between a solo acoustic sound to replicating a full band effect.

With strong influences of Frank Turner, Frightened Rabbit and Noah and the Whale, Jonathan performs both original material from his new EP "Daughters" (out in January 2017) and his unplugged album "Where I Want to Be". He can also perform an extensive list of covers, including songs by artists such as The 1975, Taylor Swift, Mumford & Sons, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Alt-J, The National, Frightened Rabbit, Frank Turner, Kevin Devine, Bon Iver, Bear's Den, Ben Howard, Charlie Simpson and many more.

PERFORMANCE OPTIONS

  • Price from £40
    Solo

    My set can be tailored to match the needs of the performance. While I have a list of over 20 original songs to draw from (which can be described as pop/folk, with some upbeat and some melancholy songs), I have an extensive list of cover songs which I can play.

    These cover songs often involve loop pedals and effects to add my own twist to the songs and to make for an interesting set.
    A small sample of the type of artists I can cover are: The 1975, Coldplay, Mumford & Sons, Taylor Swift, Frank Turner, Ben Howard, Bon Iver, The National, Kevin Devine, Frightened Rabbit, Charlie Simpson, Death Cab for Cutie, Father John Misty, Alt-J, Vampire Weekend, Snow Patrol, Joshua Radin, Kevin Devine, Hozier and many more.

    If asked far enough in advance, I can take requests for cover songs.
