 Celebrating 20 years as a recording artist, this collection brings together some of Perry Blake’s finest acoustic-based tracks and includes previously unreleased material plus a string quartet version of ‘Genevieve’ recorded live at Cirque Royale, Brussels.
 Born in County Sligo, North West Ireland, on May 10th 1970, Perry Blake is of Irish and French Huguenot ancestry. He released his eponymous debut album to massive critical acclaim across Europe in 1998. It became a huge seller in France and went on to establish him as
one of the most highly regarded singer songwriters in Europe, appearing regularly on French TV and writing and touring with French stars such as Francoise Hardy, Carla Bruni and Emile Simon.
 Over the last 20 years, across eight classic albums, Perry has worked with some extraordinary talent, such as Marco Sabiu (Tanita Tikaram, Francoise Hardy, Ennio Morricone, Pavarotti), Toby Pitman (Paul McCartney, George Michael, David Arnold, Clint Mansell, Shirley Bassey), Steve Jansen (Japan, Rain Tree Crow), Glen Garret (Dead Can Dance), Graham Murphy (Clannad, Sharon Shannon, Marie Brennan) and Neil Conti (David Bowie/Prefab Sprout).
