In 2017 singer-songwriter Blake Hassebrock walked away from a promising professional baseball career, sold his belongings, and retreated to an old 26’ sailboat along the Carolina coast. For over a year, Hassebrock lived in isolation, enchanted by the natural calm and the thrill of the free sea. His time on the water marks a re-birth, during which he wrote, re-wrote, and recorded the most beautifully introspective and emotionally wracked songs of his life. When he finally rejoined the world he emerged with something worth hearing, his debut album, “Soul for Sail,” which is becoming an indie/folk touchstone. A decorated songwriter and gifted vocalist, Hassebrock’s poignant lyrics and rich tone have critics drawing comparisons to Lewis Capaldi, Ray Lamontagne, Damien Rice, and Dallas Green among others. Debut album "Soul for Sail" was release March 6 and well received. Blake's second album "Woods and Water" is currently being released one song at a time on the 22nd of each month during 2021.
