THOMAS OLIVER covers James Blake 'I Am Sold' (live)

THOMAS OLIVER covers James Blake 'I Am Sold' (live) - Aston Rd Sessions

Watch what happens when Thomas Oliver covers electronic artist James Blake’s song with a Weissenborn lap-slide guitar and a loop pedal.

Delicate falsetto vocals soar above layered drum beats played on the body of the Weissenborn, creating a unique rendition of this song and showcasing Oliver’s multi-dimensional talents as a vocalist and guitar player.

"I've been listening to James Blake every morning and every night. His music intrigues me; it's like a collision of singer-songwriter and electronic producer, and a juxtaposition of beauty and chaos. I was drawn to the challenge of recreating I Am Sold in a solo acoustic performance," says Oliver.

Aston Rd Sessions were recorded and filmed in front of a live audience over three consecutive nights in the heart of Wellington city in May.

Fans of the artists applied for the opportunity to be a part of an intimate and exclusive audience of fifty only at a secret location which was revealed on the day of the show. The venue was the Blue Barn Studio in Newtown, which was a unique opportunity for many of the fans to be in a working recording studio.
