Robert Sarazin Blake paints the imagery of a peaceful escape to the quiet backwoods of the Northwest. This small-town-based musician writes songs with the soul of countryside cabins and folk tales.

Seattle native and resident of Bellingham, WA Robert Sarizin Blake combines songwriting and musicianship into crafty guitar-based storytelling. "When I hear great songwriters, it brings me to a very real place inside myself...," says Blake. "That's where I try to write from." Blake first picked up his interest in music at the age of 5 under the influence of his father who was a musician and songwriter.

Sarazin Blake regularly collaborates with musicians Mike Grigoni (pedal steel guitar), Josh Brahinsky (upright bass) and Jordan Rain (drums) who appear on many of his recordings. Blake has a total of 7 albums including one when he was a member of the High, Wide and Handsome Band and another with Philadelphia folk-punk legend Erick Petersen (aka Mischeif Brew). His most recent album is titled A Short Series of Long Nights Remembered: The Belfast Sessions. In addition to producing an extensive catalogue he also founded the Subdued Stringband Jamboree music festival that takes place annually in Bellingham. Blake is currently on the road in Missouri, performing in the cities of Springfield, Columbia and St. Louis before starting the next leg of his tour in Washington.
