Origin/Base: Austin, TX
Singer-songwriter, Torre Blake, takes listeners to an entirely new plane with her smooth, contemporary and fresh take on Soul/R&B. Emerging with a distinctively urban sound palette that renders an ethereal dream, Blake showcases a lyrical finesse brought to life with her lush, soulful vocals and honeyed melodic harmonies. The songstress [thrives] beyond the girl-next-door vibe into an exceptionally singular personality, that like her hometown, Austin, TX., defies all labels.
Torre Blake could sing since before she could talk. She moved around the United States throughout her childhood, but has always called Austin “home”. She dabbled in recording at studios in high school and sung in a local church choir before pursuing songwriting and music seriously after coming back to Austin from college. In 2017 she released her self titled EP after debut single “Till My Heart Stops”. In 2018 she dropped “Summertime Fine”, a lush single with a homegrown flavor (due to the mention of Austin’s Barton Springs). Torre Blake plans to release new music this coming year.
“This Austin native makes R&B through a dazzling, kaleidoscopic lens. "Way She Walks" finds warm, retro edge with collaborators Wavvy James and Afterhours, highlighting the thoughtful soul of Blake's tone.” - Austin Chronicle
