Canadian singer songwriter Forest Blakk stole our hearts recently when he made a sensational debut on Love Me. His soulful alt rock, paired with a heartrending form of soulful pop, was instantaneously hooking and heartfelt affecting in a James Bay meets Jaymes Young way, and it catapulted Forest Blakk to the top tier of our favorite new artists list. Forest Blakk now follows up that song with a beautifully moving piano and strings ballad named Where I First Found You. It’s a more intimate and stripped down outing, on which Forest Blakk’s effortless serenading takes much of the limelight. Purchase the gorgeous ballad from iTunes, here

Maybe German production duo GAMPER & DADONI can read minds. They must have somehow figured out how much I love Forest Blakk’s debut single, Love Me, because they’ve chosen that exact urban pop and soulful alt rock ballad for their latest remix. Forest Blakk’s voice doesn’t take the backseat on this chill melodic house edit. In fact, it almost feels like it’s even more fleecy soothing and melty luscious framed in GAMPER & DADONI’s gentle strums and earthy beats. Their remix is like Milky Chance meets Kygo, or James Bay meets Thomas Jack. Stream/download the track, here. I beseech you to check out the original below, too, if you missed our feature of Forest Blakk’s Love Me previously.

Canadian singer songwriter Forest Blakk premiered his music video for Love Me last week with our friends, We Found New Music. The song is this ear turning newcomer’s first single, an urban pop meets soulful alt rock ballad bursting with affecting emotion. Its wistful strumming, dulcet lilt is irresistible in a James Bay meets Jaymes Young-like manner, plus Forest Blakk’s smooth charismatic crooning is infinitely heartrending. The voice-to-watch, who first enamored droves of fans with popular acoustic covers alongside bandmate Christoph Stiller, says of his debut video: “The most amazing part of turning a song into a video is witnessing characters and stories unfold in real time. Sitting in a room watching as a whole team of people experience ‘Love Me’ as it comes to life was a moment I won’t soon forget. I want you to sit in this depth with me. I want your heart to ache along side mine through each passing minute. There is no greater reward than to be made visible in your most vulnerable state. This video is simply another piece of a much greater landscape that I have painted on my heart. This is the first minute.” Love Me is available from iTunes, here.
