With passion in his eyes and a dream of changing people’s lives with his music, 27 year old country music artist Blaise Streets, who grew up in southern Indiana, is paving a path to a long career.
His self-titled EP was released on October 4th featuring songs of heartbreak, love, and laughter with hints of inspiration from different genres while maintaining a signature country sound. Blaise signed with Nine North Records in Nashville in April 2015. He regularly performs throughout Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, and a few places in between since the release of his single “Bring on the Sunshine” in May.
This past CMA Music Fest was a major debut for Blaise with performances at various stages in downtown Nashville including Manuel’s Couture store and The Stillery on 2nd
Avenue. He recently opened for major recording artists Shenandoah, Parmalee, Wynonna Judd, Josh Thompson, and Gary Allan. He has performed at various venues and events such as French Lick Resort & Casino in Frank Lick, Indiana, Tootsie’s in Nashville, Tennessee, Kentucky State Fair in Louisville, Kentucky, and Charlestown Founders Day in Charlestown, Indiana. He also recently auditioned for The Voice as well as American Idol.
Blaise sang gospel music with his mother and twin brother in church growing up. He was a lead performer in both the choir and musical theatre program in grade school as well. However, it wasn’t until he heard Brad Paisley’s “She’s Everything to Me” on the radio during his freshman year at Indiana University Southeast that led him to attend his first live concert despite knowing little about Paisley. It was at the concert that Blaise discovered his true calling to become a country music artist. Blaise credits his musical influences to one of music’s finest legends Elvis Presley, and country music star Brad Paisley.
Blaise is hopeful about the future and knows this is just the beginning of the original music he will release in the future. With news of a baby on the way with his fiancé, life will become increasingly chaotic but that won’t stop Blaise from working on his music career. Becoming a father will only open doors to a whole new world of inspiration and connections to fans of all different ages.
“I want to write songs that are going to change people’s lives” Blaise says. His goal is to have everyone who comes to a show to have a favorite song of his. There are many paths to take on a personal journey and Blaise intends to pave a street full of inspiration and good music for the world to enjoy.
