Rupert Blackman is a singer songwriter, currently living in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Originally from London, Rupert moved to the lowlands in early 2008. Upon arrival, Rupert formed a band around his music and soon after independently released a self made record (If You Only Knew EP) which lead to widespread interest in what he was doing..
However, it was as Rupert was carrying out his day job when his musical career took a larger step forward. At the time this day job was performing live music on the streets of Amsterdam. As luck would have it one day he was spotted by Holland's favourite female singer Anouk. After buying a few of his CDs, Anouk invited Rupert to be her support act for her entire winter theatre tour of The Netherlands. Although the tour itself was later postponed, this gesture was already enough to get other industry folk interested in Rupert and his music. .
Several meetings later Rupert began working alongside Bladehammer Music (an artist development company). This lead to him signing a deal with the record label PIAS, recording his debut album 'The Lights of Home' (out March 2013) with Martijn Groeneveld (Blaudzun, Case Mayfield, Lucky Fonz III). In the run up to the release of the album, a preview EP (Night and Day) featuring tracks from the upcoming album was released. Following Rupert's performance of the first single, 'Night and Day' on prime time television (De Wereld Draait Door), this EP shot into the top 5 of the iTunes album charts in Holland. The single itself was iTunes single of the week and is scored national radio airplay as well as being featured on a television commercial.
The buzz around the release of 'The Lights of Home' lead to the album release concert in Ekko Utrecht on 6th of March being sold out days before the date itself. 3fm have also been regularly spinning the second single from the album 'Run Away With Me'.
2013 is looking good.
