Born and raised in Roanoke,VA, Harvest Blaque infuses the sounds of old school hip-hop with blues and rock undertones. This innovative mix creates a new school sound that he dubs "soul hop". He has an eclectic taste in music, listening to everything from Led Zepplin to Run DMC.
He finds inspiration for writing in the stories as told by the musical greats, as well as underground artists. His first album/mix-tape "Stress as a Weapon", blends his knack for storytelling with vintage-laced tracks, and although fueled by angst, ultimately delivers a message of hope.
Executive produced by Mike Kazee, Harvest Blaque also worked with local producers Chris Prythmn (Ill-lit), Optimo (Mike Madison), L.S. (Robert Miller-Cox) and an underground producer who goes by the alias the “Terrible Aussie”. He's also the bi-weekly host of the “Soul Sessions” poetry slam at 16 West Marketplace. Harvest Blaque has a passion for music and gives every project his all.
