Check Out Blake Mills’ Performance On NPR’s Mountain Stage
Singer-songwriter Blake Mills made a stop at the NPR Mountain Stage in Charelston, W.V. earlier this week for short, but sweet, mini set. Check out his performance of 'Hey Lover' above.
Formerly of the acclaimed indie band Simon Dawes (later, simply Dawes), Mills started out on his own in 2010 with the intriguing and under-the-radar 'Break Mirrors,' his first solo offering. Earlier this year, he put forth his second solo effort, 'Heigh Ho,' which was released on Verve Records, and has been receiving universal rounds of applause. He has also found time to collaborate with a wide array of musicians including Conor Oberst, Fiona Apple and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons. Even guitar legend Eric Clapton spoke highly of Mills, calling him "the last guitarist I heard that I thought was phenomenal."
Watch him belt out the opening track of 'Heigh Ho,' 'If I'm Unworthy,' below, and stream the entire set at NPR.org.
