"Blake is an outstanding musician, producer, audio-engineer and arranger. He masterfully recorded and transcribed original compositions for me in his studio. I have worked with him in many musical settings and have always found him very professional and reliable, with a humble demeanor, sharp flexibility and superb ability."
KIM KRAMER | Musician & Composer

"Musicians and arrangers don't get much better than Blake! His talents and knowledge soars in every area – vocally, as a pianist, guitarist and drummer. There isn't anything that Blake can't do! On top of that, he's extremely organized, professional, dedicated and always gets things done ahead of time."
HANNAH RYAN | Vocal Music Director

"I have worked with countless musicians in my position as a worship leader and I can say that Blake is among the best that I get to work with. He is talented on many levels, with many instruments. His musical talent is only surpassed by his great attitude and willingness to help in any way needed. He is a great example of a Christian using their gifts and talents for God."
DAVID TRAVNICEK | Worship Leader
