Fresh from supporting Izzy Bizu at Shepherd's Bush Empire on Wednesday, London based future-soul artist Blaise Pascal unveils his debut, self-titled EP. Lead track I Can't Wait samples the melodic hook from Billy Cobham's 'Heather', famously used in hip-hop classic 93 'til Infinity' by Souls of Mischief.
Born in Pembury and raised in London, Blaise's career began with scholarships to Sylvia Young & Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance. At the age of 17, his uncle Martin Rex (engineer & producer of artists such as Alison Moyet, Neneh Cherry and The Beat), saw potential and gave him a guitar, igniting a passion for playing and writing that would soon surpass all else.
A talented musician and authentic story teller, Blaise's EP tracks range from exploring the complexities of relationships to addressing serious issues. He regularly takes inspiration from social, political and conscious commentary, such as on the track 'Dead Man's Shoes' recently premiered by Complex UK. Already heralded as a one to watch by the ILUVLIVE team, Blaise appears on our recently released Hot List for 2017.
