Blake Luley
Musician + Composer

performance + production

Performing and recording music has been my favorite thing in the world since I got my first 4-track recorder as a kid. In my years of playing music, I've been a part of many different aspects of music creation, from songwriting to recording and mixing to touring and performing. Music I've been a part of creating has gotten acclaim from NPR, Pitchfork, Stereogum, KEXP, Paste Magazine, and much more. I've also had the chance to share the music I've created around the US and Europe on multiple tours. Nowadays, I front a band here in Seattle called Rainwater, and work with the New York-based band Air Waves.
