Blake English - Spiders Make Great Poets

Blake English was born and raised in Athens, Georgia, home of many musical juggernauts such as REM and The B52's. He has always been interested in honing his skills in all forms of performance art, using the instrument of his body to express his artistry. He has been heavily involved in the theatre and dance scene since he was a child.

His musical influences are David Bowie, Lady Gaga, Marilyn Manson, and My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way. He is also heavily influenced by the cinematic horror universe and all of its creatures, which come across brilliantly in each of the videos he releases.

Blake has headlined for Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation events, danced on The Ellen Show, performed at SXSW Music Festival, been featured on School'd (The Goldbergs ABC) and shared a stage with his life long mentor Amanda Palmer (The Dresden Dolls).

Blake is releasing his debut EP, Spiders Make Great Poets, today, May 15.

Spiders Make Great Poets is a coming of age story about Blake English's journey to break down societal expectations, dealing with social pressure, and self-expression. With his haunting and intense lyrics and upbeat delivery, you can't help but bop your head to it.
