"A master of subtlety in the realms of folk-informed pop." - The Thin Air
"His talent is shining brighter with every album." - John Creedon, RTÉ
Nominated for Song of the Year at the International Folk Music Awards, Kansas City.
Ever prolific, Blek has released 5 albums in the last 5 years. Currently he is preparing to release number 6, his new album Thistle & Thorn due in February 2019. 'Salt in the Water' from Blek's current album Catharsis Vol.1, was nominated for 'Song of the Year' at the International Folk Music Awards 2018 at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City. It's been a busy few years and it shows no sign of letting up. Endless tours and recording in Ireland, Europe, UK and USA
keep the Irish troubadour busy.
He is a master storyteller and an inspiring live performer. His beautiful finger style guitar and joyous vocal weave a tapestry that is as poignant as it is skilful. He is a true artist.

In John's words – “I spent much of the early part of 2017 in and out of hospital with some mysterious illness that was intent on wasting my now 30-year-old body. My energy was at an all time low and all that gave me joy had been stripped or put on hold. All but my guitar and what was left of my feeble voice. So to fill the days and occupy my mind, I wrote. I wrote of resilience, of pain and uncertainty. Of new love through fevered dreams, of strength, hope, distance, sedation and the cure. I did it every day and recorded the demos sitting up in my hospital bed accompanied by the electronic bleeps of the machines and punctuated by the nurse’s concerned enquiries. I had a reason. For me this is cathartic. For me, this was the panacea.”
