As a dynamic vocalist, deft multi-instrumentalist, and dexterous producer, Blake Rose not only dives in and out of different sonic wavelengths, but he also attunes to experiences and emotions. Against a backdrop of glistening alternative atmospheres, hummable pop choruses, and immersive electric guitar-laden soundscapes, he lyrically places himself inside of identifiable moments and unfiltered conversations unlocked by a keen sense of empathy. You'll practically hear his memories and anecdotes unfold in real-time as he ponders the nature of nostalgia, infatuation, struggle, mental health, and family. Emerging in 2018 out of Perth, Australia, he initially gained traction with "Hotel Room," "Best of Me," and "Lady" before 2020's "Gone" exploded to the tune of 65 million Spotify streams. "Lost" picked up over 100 million streams as well. Meanwhile, his A World Gone By EP arrived to widespread critical acclaim. FLOOD hailed it as "a body of work that's easy to get lost in," while V Man dubbed him an "Artist to Watch" and FLAUNT attested, "Blake Rose is your new favorite artist." He notably sold out headline gigs on both coasts of North America in addition to sharing stages with Noah Kahan, Ashe, Boys Like Girls, girl in red, Dean Lewis, and many others on the road. Now, the Australia-born and Los Angeles-based artist chronicles a series of realizations and revelations on his 2023 EP, You'll Get It When You're Older [AWAL Recordings].
