James Blake

Along his journey, this blue-eyed tattooed beast with expert beard grooming skills picked up a wife and three kids in the hitchhikers game of life. His combination of Fergie and Jesus like vocal skills landed him as lead vocalist AND skillful bassist for IDLEWAR. When he’s not paying homage to his musical influences like Led Zepplin, King’s X, Clutch and Rod Stewart he teaches kids about the difference between energy and force as a Physics teacher, or demonstrating ninja-like skills as a Martial Arts coach. As he awaits doomsday with a readily equipped toolbox of apocalyptic strategies….knife…check….some rope….check….a couple flares….check….water purification tablets… check…”The Blakester” (AKA: Captain Mancake) is instant comedic relief to the rock junkies of IDLEWAR.
