Hailing from Arlington Texas, Christopher has been writing and performing live since the age of 14. Originally taken by the raw energy and honesty of Nirvana and Green Day, he soon discovered the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix. However, Blake is equally influenced by current artists such as Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars, plus a variety of hip hop, indie pop, and jazz artists. All of these influences can be heard in Christopher’s current release, Weekend Love. Blake’s sound is most readily described as a combination of blues, pop, r&b, smooth jazz, and hip hop. However, there is more, something deeper, often more mysterious. One listen to “Cold Hearted Women” from Weekend Love instantly transports you to a rainy night’s drive on a long stretch of highway. “Falling in Your Arms” reveals his roots as a guitarist and acoustic musician. “Her Love” typifies the unique storyteller in Christopher; Deep lyrically, while maintain amazing accessibility. As one reviewer stated, Blake is “John Mayer with a twist of Adam Levine…Pure Gold.” In spite of his stylistic diversity and lyrical complexity, one common thread runs through Blake’s songs: His ever-present pop hook sensibility.

Undoubtedly, all of his works bear the mark of Christopher Blake. Singer. Producer. Artist.
