BLAINE LONG
BLAINE LONG
As a singer-songwriter, Blaine Long has been on a musical journey for more than 15 years. But over the last twelve months, with the release of two new CDs, Honey in My Coffee and Rescue Your Doubt, this unique artist has most definitely arrived. Born and raised in Arizona, Long was a high school dropout who had to learn the hard way, from serving up fast food to digging ditches and odd jobs. While on the run from a strict Christian upbringing and the seeming conventions of daily life, Blaine discovered guitar, singing and especially songwriting. After fronting original bands during the '90s, he started perfecting his solo acoustic skills and began playing solo at coffee shops and bars, moving around to Boulder, San Diego, and wherever music would take him. During that time, he met (while painting her house) the woman who would become his wife. They married in July 2007 and immediately moved back to Arizona. Blaine released Honey in My Coffee in June 2010, an album describing the achievement of a happy home life over the struggles of typical self-destructive musician's lifestyle. This was followed up by Rescue Your Doubt in January 2011. Today Blaine Long's music is marked by warm and soulful vocals and a powerful rhythmic acoustic guitar style. His honest songs are a treat whether he's playing solo, as a duo with Dilli on harmonica, or with a full band.
