Hello, new friend!
My name is Blaise (they/them) and I'm a singer-songwriter, actor, and comedy maker from the Bronx. I attended SUNY Purchase where I opened for acts such as Mitski, Mal Blum and Charly Bliss. I released my debut single "Capsized" this summer, which has been submitted for Grammy consideration!
My soft, soft songs meditate on themes of faith, queerness, invisible illness, and the desire for connection in all of its glorious mess. I also love to bond with audiences through comedic banter between my feelings-laden songs.
My musical influences include Sufjan Stevens, Anaïs Mitchell, Nick Drake, and my dog when she howls because she's excited.
My EP "The Earth Spins" (below!!) is set to be released this fall.
The following music was produced remotely during quarantine by Phil Carroll of Recording Artists Development under a Silvia Rivera Scholarship for trans/nb artists. Mixed media artwork used on album art by Bronx artist Antoinette Legnini.
Thanks for dropping by! Blaise
