Hello! Welcome to the official website for American singer-songwriter Blaise Guld.
A soul/rock/pop artist based out of San Diego, CA.

“I have been making music since the age of fifteen, learning mostly by ear with much help along the way. Moving to San Diego about 8 years ago has brought me closer to a great community of musicians reaching toward similar goals. With a background in musical theater my songs tend to be very visual, telling a story to create the scope of emotion.” - Blaise
With eclectic performances ranging from Blaise Guld with his full backing-band, featuring all original music and packing out venues like House of Blues to a one-man solo acoustic act of upbeat, energetic covers featuring harmonica and boot-stomping riffs peppered with Blaise's originals. Blaise currently holds several residencies in downtown, San Diego and La Jolla including Whiskey Girl, Prospect Bar & Grill, Barley Mash (Ginger’s) and has played at major festivals, Padres games, Sea World, celebrity golf tournaments, San Diego Fair, SXSW (Austin, TX) on NBC and Playboy radio (Sirius XM).
“I am proud to announce that I am finished with my first LP as a solo artist. The album, Past Forward, was released on April 15th, 2014. It features 9 original songs (some old, some new) and two bonus tracks in the style of soul/folk/pop. The songs are loosely based on the arc of my love-life from past to present with turbulence, sincerity, a little bit of sap and a whole lot of love.” - Blaise
The first single off the album, ‘Song On The Water’, was officially released on April 1st for digital distribution on most major music sites such as iTunes, Amazon, X Box Music, I Heart Radio, Spotify, etc... Download it now and watch the music video on YouTube!
