Releasing his first body of work in 1997, Robert Sarazin Blake has since recorded another 10 full length albums and sold over 10,000 of them from his suitcase. Further proving that he is a one man cottage industry existing underneath and outside the main-streams of the music business, Blake has grown into a world class performer, playing over 200 shows a year.
The Bellingham, Washington native sites Bob Dylan, John Prine, Shel Silverstein and Christy Moore among his influences and inspirations.
Blake took the stage with a power and intensity that left me feeling that I had just witnessed Jack Kerouac, Ernest Hemingway, and a proton bomb all combined into one. – Peter Winter, All The Day Sounds
Blake spins classic melodies with warm tones and captivating narratives that perfectly represent the folk genre. – S. Marx, Record Department Music Reviews
