Blake Allison has played drums for 11 years. Coming from Little Rock Arkansas, he started playing in bands when he was 16. His influences are Chad Smith, Abe Cunningham, Matt Cameron, Travis Barker, and Abe Laboriel Jr. After playing in jam bands through high school, he was awarded a scholarship to the University Of Memphis for music education. He signed his first record deal at the age of 20 and was recording his first nationally distributed record with Josh Abraham (Korn, Limp Biscuit, 30 Seconds To Mars, Linkin Park). Over the next few years he toured heavily with Disturbed, Nonpoint, Drowning Pool, and 12 Stones as well as a tour on both Ozzfest and Family Values. He is currently working on a second record in which he was extremely fortunate as a drummer to work with Abe Laboriel Jr.
