A B O U T
Blake Collins is an American-British indie rock musician, singer-songwriter and performer. With poetic lyrics, impassioned vocals, and entrancing performance, his work is often compared to bands like The Beatles, The Kinks and The Beach Boys, as well as solo artists like Emitt Rhodes and Harry Nilsson. Collins crafts his music with engaging narratives, catchy melodies, lush harmonies and memorable hooks to achieve a pop perfection that speaks to universal emotion and experience.
Having fed heartily on seminal modern rock and power-pop groups like Dr. Dog, The Shins, Weezer and The Strokes, Blake Collins arrives upon a sound and vibe that is contemporary as well as timeless. He also brings the excitement and magic of his music to life on stage, whether playing his acoustic guitar in candid and raw solo performances or with the energy of a full electric lineup.
