Blake Luquette has a voice that was born to meld with an
accousitic guitar. He didn't realize it until he was 12 years old and saw who then became
his lifelong idol, George Strait. It was then that Blake knew his calling and asked his
mother for a guitar.
That was only the start... by the age of 17,
Blake, who has just turned 18, had recorded his first CD, "What If". I
don't think "what if" is a question we'll ever have to ponder with Blake. His
talent and determination are what IS and what will make him rise to the top. The only
"what if" is one we'll never have to worry about....
What if his mother hadn't gotten him that guitar?
"What If" contains a variety of
styles, 12 songs most of which were written or co-written by Blake and ALL real country.
From ballads, to honky tonk, and blues to boogywoogy, Blake offers his audience a little
bit of everything while staying true to his roots and to himself.
""I'm not going to tell you that I am the next George Strait because there is
only one George Strait. I am Blake Luquette and I sound just like Blake Luquette!! I have
my own style of music!!" Blake Luquette, 1999
