Blake Roses has had a bit of a time of it. From the death of his dad, to helping raise his baby sister, to his fiancé breaking off their engagement – on Oh, Weatherly’s debut, he bares all.
Hey Blake, how’s it going? Excited for the album?
Hey! It’s going great. We are very excited for our first full-length album. One of my biggest goals was to put out a full-length, so it’s kind of like having an extra Christmas this year.
How long have you been working on ‘Lips Like Oxygen’ for, has it been a long time coming?
There are a couple of songs on the record that I’ve had in the works for a little over a year now, but most of the material was written about six months before recording. I took that time off work to buckle down and get in my feels.
What was it like teaming up with Jake Bundrick from Mayday Parade?
My experience with Jake was amazing. He’s an incredibly talented, humble, and down to earth guy and I don’t think this album would be the same without him.
Has he given you much band life advice?
There were a lot of “Dad moments” as Jake would call them where he’d help guide and give his input where it was needed. He definitely helped shed some light on what the music business is like and shared his own personal experiences.
