BLOK is a dynamic and post-modern vision of an urban abstract party. Surreal electric jams on a dirty street corner with your neighbors turned beasts in high fashion. Born and raised in Southern California, these three biological siblings (yes, really the same father and mother), Damien Blaise (all original music composition and lead vocals/ lyrics), Gianna Gianna (backup vocals/lyrics and hype), and Jesse Saint John (additional vocals/lyrics and hype), have been performing with the conviction of the possessed since forming the group in late 2008; playing notable venues like The Knitting Factory, The House of Blues, The Glass House, The Music Box at Henry Fonda, The Art Institute, and many others. They have shared bills with The Clipse, The Cool Kids, Diplo, Die Antwoord, DJ Z-Trip, and many others. Members have individually had successful stints in acting, modeling, and visual art/design. Although considered outliers among the Orange County music scene, they have been critically acclaimed by numerous local publications and blogs, and have been nominated for multiple Orange County Music Awards including Best New Artist, Best Live Act, Best Electronic Act, and Best Hip-Hop Act. Damien Blaise produces and composes all of their otherworldly and gritty rhythmic 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 on your radio doesn't have to be as mindless or predictable as many have been led to believe.
