A little bit about me!

Hi, I'm Mckenna Blake!  I'm an 18 year old indie/folk singer/songwriter located in Nashville, Tennessee.  I've been performing ever since I was little, and I play piano and guitar - both acoustic and electric.   Some of my biggest musical influences are Lizzy McAlpine, Annie DiRusso, and The Lumineers.  

I'm currently a first-year student at Belmont University, where I'm working towards a degree in Songwriting.  At Belmont, I'm part of Music Row Promo Club and the Belmont University Songwriting Organization, and I'm also a member of Grammy U.

I attended the Berklee 5-Week Music Performance Intensive Program during the summers of 2022 and 2023.  During my first summer, I studied Songwriting and Pop/Rock Performance, and I returned for a second summer on a full-tuition merit scholarship to study Songwriting and Jazz Performance.  

During my time at Berklee, I had the opportunity to record an original song in the Berklee studios with my songwriting classmates.  I was also selected to be a background singer in Berklee's Singer Showcase, a prestigious performance in which only 11 vocalists are selected from the entire program.
