I am a lover of classic songs, these songs inspired me as a youngster to learn how to play the guitar. I like my performances to be authentic and genuinely from the heart. There are no gimicks or backing tracks just the power of a voice and and an acoustic guitar. The greatness of these songs bring us together, help us share common ground and enjoy ourselves. I believe what makes my act incredible is this shared experience, be it passive, relaxed and listening or active involved and up lifting. I think in my sets there is something for everyone to enjoy. I know all my songs by heart. Some acts use a phone to play a song and read the words and chords. I do not allowing to focus on the people at the event. I have nearly 20 years of experience as a professional musician. From busking to being a signed act. From busking to cruise ships. I've played pretty much everywhere. I'm new to Encore and looking forward to providing you with the best quality at your event.

We are a Micropub in the heart of Broadstairs 'The Magnet' And we book Blake on a regular basis. Are customers love his music. Perfect for listening to over a relaxing drink. I would highly recommend his services.

Blake played for my 50th birthday party celebration. He plays superb songs and kept everybody entertained without being to loud and overpowering. Blake gave a real atmosphere to proceedings.We would highly recommend his services. Blake played 2 x 45 minutes of brilliant acoustic songs by Pink Floyd, The Beatles Etc Great Voice and great sound.
