Interview with Blake Owens on Balcony Music - datakeover504


Still working on that hot first release.



From the city that’s renown for giving the gift of music to the world ranging from the blues, jazz, funk and most recently hip-hop, today Houston born/New Orleans bred artist O.G Blake Owens is ushering in a new sound that marries the best of old and new-school hip-hop, leaving one riding high on the wave of lyrical greatness.

Owning the underground scene as an artist and concert promoter, Owens produced a highly successful hip-hop show “NOMW- Next Up” at the House of Blues which ran for three consecutive years.  "Next Up" showcased the talent of up and coming artists, giving them a platform to perform for talent buyers, promoters, and the general public. With this experience, Blake was inspired to deliver a new sound, "Balcony Music."

Describing "Balcony Music," he says, “Currently, my music is influenced by my life and everyday experience as a resident of the French Quarter."  His lifestyle is captured in the music video for his latest single“Riding High”, which shows Blake and his “Get Up-n-Ride” social bike tour club riding bikes through the Crescent City as he flows over the classic Faze-O song of the same title. The "Riding High" single and album will be  released  on Nov. 8, 2016 via digital distribution sites like iTunes, Tidal, and more.  As one who values his fans he will later release multiple new videos, travel on tour, and give his social media followers an in-depth behind the scene view of  the Riding High Movement.
