In 1997, Robert Sarazin Blake dropped out of college and hit the road. The folk music of his father’s house had combined with the DIY punk ethos of the day and produced his first album, ‘Another Irrelevant Year.’ For three decades, Blake toured across the US, Canada, Ireland, Germany, and beyond performing concerts to small groups of people in small rooms. 

In 2017, Blake released his 12th album ‘Recitative,’ which earned an A- from The Dean of American Rock Critics, Robert Christgau, who wrote, “Chants that riff on the titles WORK, COUPLES, and SINGLE WOMEN are as instantly indelible as the Springsteen, Weill, Reed, and Van Morrison lifts woven in.”

A new full length album will be released in the fall of 2024.

Blake’s latest single, 'Don't Use Our Death And Pain' is a cry to end the violence in Gaza.
