Blaise Delfino is a singer-songwriter from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Using his keen observations of the human condition, his music cover topics like love and finding his way in the world. By blending alternative, pop and rock sounds Blaise has coined fan favorites “Tie Die” and “Sick From Missing You”.
Born September 10, 1991, Blaise comes from a musical family. He recounts stories that have been passed down through generations about his ancestors singing to survive when they first stepped off the boats that brought them to the U.S. from Italy. Blaise began crafting his musical talents at the age of five, with drum lessons and has since added guitar to his repertoire.
Blaise released his debut 4 song EP, entitled “Take Two” in February of 2011 and is currently working on a full-length studio album, called “Away From Me”, due out in 2012. Blaise is preparing to tour with a full band to promote the release of his new album and has already worked with a variety of artists ranging from JoJo, Ryan Cabrera and Elliot Yamin, to Action Item, Pat DiNizio and Patent Pending.

Blaise Delfino: Keeping It Positive
[+ Show ]
“If Paramore and Bruno Mars were to procreate, my music would be their love child,” said Indie music...“If Paramore and Bruno Mars were to procreate, my music would be their love child,” said Indie musician/singer/songwriter Blaise Delfino. “I write Pop/Rock songs with very catchy lyrics. I’ve been compared to Disney artists, as well as having a clean image and guitar heavy tracks. This is what sets my music apart from many of the artists currently in the industry.”
From Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, the multi-instrumentalist began playing drums at only five years old with his fathers influence. From there he moved onto saxophone and played in school bands. As a teenager, he became interested in learning the guitar. “I bought myself a book with tips and tricks on playing guitar, and taught myself. I would spend hours in my room working on my craft and grew to love my instrument. It wasn’t long until I was writing my own songs, performing at local clubs, and creating a buzz in my hometown.”
Delfino lists several musical influences notably Dashboard Confessional, Secondhand Serenade, and Paramore, but there are two musicians that he looks up to the most, “Chris Carraba of Dashboard Confessional is a musician I always have and will admire. He writes beautiful music, but his lyrics are what grasp the listener’s ear. He makes himself vulnerable to a point, and that is something I have learned through listening to his music. You can make yourself vulnerable to your fans, but leave a little mystery. Gregg Allman is another musician I greatly admire. Not only does he encompass distinguished musicianship, he is a great example on and off stage. He understands music and displays a great work ethic, attributes musicians need to be successful.”
The Indie singer/songwriter culls inspiration from what he sees around him. “My lyrical inspiration results from my observations of the human condition. How people behave under certain situations and circumstances provides me with great inspiration and material to write a song.”
Later when talking about his music, Delfino added, “I want my fans to receive a positive message from my music. There’s so much negativity in the world today, that I want my songs to be a safe haven where fans can go and lose themselves in the music. I write high-energy Pop/Rock songs, and to see my fans dancing and enjoying themselves at shows, I feel accomplished knowing they’ll leave the show with great memories and a smile on their face.”
Delfino has a four song EP out, Take Two, which is available on iTunes and Amazon and is in the studio working on his full-length debut, Away From Me. Indie music fans can check out Delfino’s music on his official site, Facebook page, You Tube channel, and can follow updates on his Twitter feed.

He has a number of songs/videos posted on YouTube but have not picked up much traction yet. His image is tight and his music is similar to the Disney artist. I appreciate his clean lyrics and guitar heavy tracks.
The fact that he hired a Management company hopefully means that his fan base is expanding, he is close or has a distribution deal, and his album has dropped. If you recall from the post yesterday about building a team in the music/entertainment industry, a business manager or artist manager is key to helping the artist attain longevity in the industry. Greedy Pimp Entertainment, states on their website that their goal is to guide the professional career of artists in the entertainment industry.
As an independent artist – you still need help to develop and grow your brand. Just because you are labeled, an independent artist doesn’t mean that you are solo out there.

Delfino, accompanying himself on guitar, had a nice, buoyant voice, often sounding like Dashboard Confessional. But even after an earlier act was told the judges looked down on playing covers without changing them up, Delfino played a cover of The Killers’ “Mr. Brightside” that, frankly, wasn’t as good as his original songs. ...
