Jason Blake

Jason Blake plays the Warr guitar, a twelve-string instrument incorporating the range of a guitar and bass. It is played by tapping the strings, a technique known as touchstyle guitar. He performs with the bands, Aziola Cry and Backward Sky Falling, and as a solo artist, Blake is not one to pigeonhole himself as his musical output spans a wide variety of genres. He released a solo Warr guitar album entitled, Imaginary Cages, leading one reviewer to say this about Blake, “He once again confirms why he is one of the most distinguished technicians on the Warr.” Now, Blake returns with a new solo album entitled, Radiant Dusk, a ten song collection showing a more intimate side of his playing.
