Blake English was born and raised in Athens Georgia, home of many musical juggernauts such as REM and The B52’s. He has always been interested in honing his skills in all forms of performance art, using the instrument of his body to express his artistry. He has been heavily involved in the theatre and dance scene since he was a child.
Like a refreshing storm, the emo/nu-metal vibes of ‘This is the End’ calls for action of the heart and never let’s down. It’s the upbeat goodness you’d always sought and desired.
“It’s about the art of storytelling.” Blake said. “I want to tell a story in everything that I do whether it be from my personal experience or an observation of the world around me. I’m more of a journalist, taking in what’s going on and reporting it back to you through the lens of my own experience.”
Blake has headlined for Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation events, danced on The Ellen Show, performed at SXSW Music Festival, been featured on School’d (The Goldbergs ABC) and shared a stage with his life long mentor Amanda Palmer (The Dresden Dolls). “Spiders Make Great Poets” is just the beginning of many great things to come.
His latest album ‘Spiders Make Great Poets’ is out now.
