Bio

   BLA5ER is an artist/writer, born and raised just east of Atlanta, Georgia; in Lithonia. Bla5er was born into a musical family that appreciated various genres of music. From an early age, his musical roots were planted from listening to his grandfather, Bishop W.C. Harris. Bishop Harris, a well-known local civil rights activist, was one of the original Freedom Singers and one of the lead singers of the 60's R&B group, The Dynamics.

   Bla5er would often sing his grandfather's songs acapella and learned to play the drums without formal training. Later, he would accompany his cousin, Grammy award winning producer and songwriter, Johnta' Austin to the studio where he found a second home, his skills and learned the music industry up close.

  Tragically in 1999 Bla5er witnessed the death of his Father at a young age, in his Fathers attempt to save two men that were drowning in a lake behind their family home, while he was able to save on man , he and the other young man drowned, this loss sparked a fire in Bla5er that often found him in trouble. Music would become his “escape” and a way of expressing himself. He would spend hours in one of his childhood friend’s makeshift “booth” recording songs he wrote.

   Bla5er’s first single I Got Dat Bag was released in 2016 and produced by Grammy award winning producer, Drumma Boy Fresh. Bla5er spent the next two and a half years locked in the studio creating a heartfelt sound full of pain, honesty, and growth. This sound molded his highly anticipated street album "I Want More" released on April 5,2019.

   Some of Bla5er's musical influences are hometown favorites, T.I., Jezzy and Jada Kiss, along with his first cousin Johnta' Austin and his beloved grandfather Bishop W.C. Harris.
