Formed in a basement in Ontario, Canada, in late 2012, BLAKDENIM blends genres like no Canadian act today. The group fuses hip-hop, funk, rock and soul with lyrical content that ranges from identity issues to daily issues, like picking yourself up after a bad day, perseverance, self-esteem and hope.
Influenced by artists like The Roots to Trombone Shorty, there’s no shortage of musical expertise with the line-up consisting of an emcee, female vocalist, trumpet, saxophone, bass guitar, electric guitar, keys and drummer. They soon became known as an incredible live act not to be missed within the Nation’s Capital across a spectrum of music genre fans alike.
The band recently released their sophomore project, Complexus (May 2016) and have received attention from both commercial and college radio, as well as performances at top festivals.
“BLAKDENIM are the complete package. If you’re looking for passionate lyrics, infectious rhythms, expertly layered instrumentals, or simply something to move your feet to, this is a band you have to check out.”Indie Blender
