BLOK is a dynamic and post-modern vision of an urban and surreal nightmare party. Abstracted and electric jams on a dirty moonlit sidewalk with your best friends turned growling animals. Born and raised in Southern California, these three biological siblings, Damien Blaise (all music and lead vocals), Gianna Gianna (backup vocals and hype), and Jesse Saint John (additional vocals and hype), have been performing with the conviction of the possessed since forming the group in late 2008. Although considered outliers and oddballs among the Orange County music scene, they have been acclaimed by numerous local publications and blogs and have been nominated for multiple Orange County Music Awards including Best New Artist, Best Live Act and Best Electronic Act, winning one for Best Hip-Hop Act, and seperately receiving Best Hip-Hop Act in the OC Weekly for the year as well. Damien Blaise produces and composes all of their otherworldly and gritty rhythm and hypnotic melodic structures utilizing a mixture of found objects and utensils, acoustic and traditional instruments, and electronic sounds and effects leaving no sound source or texture in reach to waste. Making post-apocalyptic and layered pop-structured soundscapes that continue to prove that what you groove to doesn’t have to be as mindless or predictable as many have been led to believe.
