There to Here
A small town boy from Kansas.... Guthrie grew up in the very heart of the United States. Being involved in music since the age of 4, it's no wonder he has music credibility world wide. "I just grew up loving music. My mom used to have my brothers and I sing in church. I started playing the drums at 6, from then on I just couldn't get enough. I learned the guitar later on just so I could have something to sing and write with. Music was always such an amazing mystery to me. It can take you to a moment or spark a memory in an instant. It has the power to pull emotions and feelings out of me like few things can." Now as a Singer/Songwriter/Producer, Blake had been turning heads since he began a full time music career in January of 2004. "By the time I graduated in 2002, I knew that there was nothing else I wanted to do than play my heart out for anyone who wanted to hear. To write songs of hope and love. Make a positive impact on those around me." And that's exactly what he does. The Passion the comes flowing from every heartfelt song is only maximized in a live setting. After the huge success of his last album"LOVE IN DIFFERENT LIGHTS" (Which was Produced by Grammy Award Winning Producer and Engineer Mitch Dane) Most artists would ride that wave for a while. Guthrie instead ran right back into the studio and threw down a couple new songs and recreated some older favorites. The outcome is 6 songs that prove this young artist is going to be around a long time. 'I wanted to go back to that, 'sitting in your living room' feel. Pull out some of the songs people loved from 'love in different lights' and 'two' and strip them back to bare vocals, acoustic and some piano. That's a dangerous place to be.. with nothing to hide behind... but i think that's what connects fans with my music.... nothing to hide... here it is... take it or leave it. ' As his fan base has now taken him globally, his writing and songs have matured even more. The songs on the new album are contrived of intoxicating melodies and music that can only be described by listening for yourself. From songs being played on XM Radio, to performing at prestigious music conferences and venues all over the world, it seems this small town boy form Kansas. . . . is destined for greatness.
