Whether it is fronting one of New York City's hottest blues bands or opening for Kiss as an indie-rock guitarist, J. Blake has been a staple of the New York City music scene for over a decade; headlining on many of the Big Apple’s most prestigious stages. Over the years, he has played lead-guitar for many notable New York blues and rock acts and was a founding member of the indie-rock groups Roadkill Breakfast and Stiletto Wheels. These days he is doing what he does best, flying solo and serving up a unique blend of classic and contemporary blues, rock and jazz with a guitar-driven debut album titled When You Coming Home?
J. Blake's sound can best be described as a high octane combination of Chicago & Texas-style blues with healthy doses of rock ‘n’ roll, modern blues-rock, jazz and at times...a touch of funk. His singing and playing styles have been compared to Freddie King and Warren Haynes and he takes great pride in the fact that critics have called his sound "authentic" and the fun he and his band have on stage "infectious."
