Highlighted as one of PEOPLE Magazine's "talented emerging artists making their mark on the musical landscape" and deemed an "artist on the rise" by Billboard, Forest Blakk made his debut with his 2018 EP Minutes and follow-up 2020 sophomore EP Sideways.

The intimate and relatable EP Every Little Detail, came in 2022 featuring his breakout Platinum-certified smash single "If You Love Her," which alone has amassed over 450 million total global streams, earned Blakk his official US chart debut on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart, his national US TV debut on ABC's Live with Kelly & Ryan, top 30 placement on the Hot AC radio chart & saw the singer/songwriter collaborate with Meghan Trainor on a stunning duet version. Meanwhile, Blakk's follow-up single "Fall Into Me" (co-written alongside Matchbox Twenty front man Rob Thomas and Gregg Wattenberg) reached top 30 on the Hot AC radio chart and Gold-certification status in his native Canada. Blakk has spent his career soundtracking love stories of all kinds, including "I Choose You" — which arrived just days after his very own Nashville wedding to Tooley Jones in a beautiful ceremony covered exclusively by PEOPLE Magazine (read here).

RIAA Platinum-certified artist, Forest Blakk has spent his career soundtracking love stories of all kinds, including "I Choose You" — which arrived just days after his very own Nashville wedding to Tooley Jones in a beautiful ceremony covered exclusively by PEOPLE Magazine (read here).

Blakk's new music follows last year's intimate and relatable Every Little Detail EP, featuring his breakout Platinum-certified smash single "If You Love Her," which alone has amassed over 450 million total global streams, earned Blakk his official US chart debut on Billboard's Emerging Artists chart, his national US TV debut on ABC's Live with Kelly & Ryan, top 30 placement on the Hot AC radio chart & saw the singer/songwriter collaborate with Meghan Trainor on a stunning duet version. Meanwhile, Blakk's follow-up single "Fall Into Me" (co-written alongside Matchbox Twenty front man Rob Thomas and Gregg Wattenberg) reached top 30 on the Hot AC radio chart and Gold-certification status in his native Canada, in addition to being featured in a perfectly fitting ad campaign for Kay Jewelers. His songs have also become a staple of Netflix's hit show Love is Blind — having been named the "patron saint" of the show by creators with the Los Angeles Times pointing out "(Blakk's) earnest mid-tempo love songs turn up on 'Love is Blind' nearly as often as hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey."

Highlighted as one of PEOPLE Magazine's "talented emerging artists making their mark on the musical landscape" and deemed an "artist on the rise" by Billboard, Blakk made his debut with his 2018 EP Minutes and follow-up 2020 sophomore EP Sideways — the latter of which saw Blakk collaborate with the likes of Will IDAP (TrainFlorida Georgia Line), Nick Long (King Princess), Carl Ryden (Ricky MartinDavid Guetta), Ollie Green (Freya RidingsGavin James) & more to tell a love story through an incredibly realistic and candid lens. The 6-track collection featured singles "I Wish I Knew" (deemed an "introspective look at love and love lost" by American Songwriter) and uplifting anthem of resilience "Put Your Hands Up," which debuted on an episode of ABC's Grey's Anatomy. A compelling live performer, Blakk has toured extensively supporting NEEDTOBREATHEGavin JamesDean Lewis & earlier this year embarked on a sold out 17-date North American headline tour.
