Greg Blake grew up in the mountains of West Virginia where he was immersed in the sounds of old country, mountain bluegrass and gospel music from an early age. Moving to Kansas City, he started playing in a variety of bands, eventually recording on twelve albums for the likes of The Bluegrass Missourians, Mountain Holler, The Harvest Quartet and others. Relocating to Colorado, Greg joined the all-star progressive bluegrass band Jeff Scroggins & Colorado, as lead vocalist and guitarist. Although Greg currently tours regularly with Jeff Scroggins & Colorado he also performs as a solo artist and with The Greg Blake Band.

Greg brings an uplifting joy to the music he knows and loves. His voice, with its rich twang, rumbling drawl and eerily powerful high tenor cry, connects to the great old generations of mountain singers. His razor-sharp and lightning-fast guitar picking has earned him nine nominations and five consecutive wins as the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America's Guitarist of the Year award. After a lifetime of performing in a variety of bands, Greg is poised to come into his own as one of the true Appalachian stars of modern bluegrass. His debut solo album, Songs of Heart and Home (2015), features Greg spreading his wings as a vocalist and bandleader, crafting genre-crossing music that appeals to bluegrass, folk, country and gospel fans alike.

The Greg Blake Band is comprised of Ellie Hakanson on fiddle and vocals, Miles Zurawell on resonator guitar and Nico Humby on double bass.
