Hey, I'm Blake!

Los Angeles, California

Blake Vaz is a singer, writer, musician, director, and Emmy® Award Winning producer who is
constantly expanding his involvement in different areas of entertainment, arts and sport.


A native of the Juarez/El Paso borderland, Vaz has been involved in music and film since his
teenage years. As the lead singer of the rock band The Mulberry Purple, Blake Vaz toured and
played hundreds of shows. With a few EP’s under his belt and numerous collaborations with great
local and international musicians, his musical repertoire continues to grow. His vocal style
combines soulfulness, power and at times aggressiveness, which allow him to jump across genres.

 

Taking a break from his music career, Blake started focusing more on his songwriting and
screenwriting. This opened the door to get involved in the film industry, as a writer, director and
producer.


With over 10 years experience creating digital and branded content, Blake started on the news
media side working for one of the largest publishers in the country, the Tribune Company. As the
Digital Products Manager for Tribune’s Hoy Newspaper, he was instrumental in the development
of new digital properties, curating and creating content as the Newspaper world transitioned into
a digital first strategy.


As the Director of Digital Content for Walton Isaacson, ‘The Planet’s Most Interesting Agency’,
Blake has had the opportunity to create unique multicultural digital content for international
brands like Lexus, Spalding, McDonald’s and Wells Fargo.


It was at WI where he was able to bring the music show VIDALEXS PRESENTA Té Para Tres to a larger audience by spearheading the relationship with the Lexus Brand and the show’s creators to
produce two seasons of the Emmy Award Winning TV show. As co-producer of the show, Vaz
received an Emmy Award in the Magazine Show category.


With the rise in popularity of branded content among brands, Blake has been successful in
creating and producing content for brands independently and through partnerships with digital
studios like Impremedia’s StudioÑ.


His latest project is the new music documentary web series, VIDALEXUS PRESENTS;
Reengineering Popular Music with Raquel Sofia. A series that he created, developed, wrote,
produced and directed for Lexus.


Blake is also the owner of Valagardo Productions, Inc., through which he produced independent
content, films and TV shows like Adventure Nation, an outdoor adventure reality show which he
co-hosted and produced and a few upcoming short films and webseries.
