2017 The Year of the Rooster

Happy Year End, Folks. At 67,000 miles per hour, we made another trip around the sun together. That right there seems like a mighty accomplishment shared. Pleasure to have been a part of it with ya. I'm coming off an extended Christmas break with a small tour's worth...

Blake’s projects document his folk twang collaboration with Belle Plaine, his Quest for Real Country Music, his door-to-door album sales campaigns (He surpassed his goal this past May!) and his independent record label, Oceanman Records. Blake’s gotten into documenting everything. These projects, along with his blog, showcase the behind-the-scenes stories, struggles and community efforts he shares with his fans.

Folk Twang Duo “Belle Plaine and Blake Berglund”

Some might say it was inevitable. Two small town Saskatchewan country kids, each with their own distinct music style, play a mean game of afternoon cribbage and decide, right then and there, to collaborate in music and in love. What followed was the release of Town to Town/Saskatchewan, a 70s-inspired 7” vinyl produced by Jason Plumb.

The Quest for Real Country Music

Inspired by the writings and the road trips of Tom Wolfe, Hunter S. Thompson, and Jack Kerouac, Blake journeys to the birthplace of American Country Music in the heart of Appalachia. Traveling on to Nashville and back home, he chronicles Country Music’s tide-turning revolution and meets the folks who honour the genre’s traditions and quality. A trilogy with a blog-based narrative, Blake’s quest comes complete with live music reviews, travel anecdotes, personal struggles and interviews with a multitude of characters all sharing their stories.

Oceanman Records

Oceanman Records is an independently operated record label connected to Blake Berglund. Named after Berglund’s epic ballad, Oceanman Records works in collaboration with fellow artists, labels and industry-minded personnel sharing a vision for quality music and artistic endeavors.

#May1000 campaign.

Taking to the streets, Blake raised capital for the independent release of his new album “Realms” by selling his double-disc recordings of “Jasper” and “Coyote” door to door between May 1 and May 31, 2017. A mix of old-fashioned hustle and community engagement meant he surpassed his 1000 CD sales goal. Deep down, knowing it would work out having sold albums in this fashion from 2008 – 2012, Blake’s profoundly grateful for the generosity of both fans and strangers.

A musician and a writer

Blake’s blog is where he lets it all out. This is where you will get a more unreserved approach to Blake’s inner workings. Encounters, opinions, and anecdotes usually tying back to the music. Usually.

He’ll say a quick hello from the road, share his tour diary, promote his fellow musicians’ albums as well as those folks in the community doing good things. As always, Blake’s grateful you’re here, reading.
