Karl Blau

Karl Blau

Karl Blau is a Pacific Northwest staple, a consistently prolific troubadour who defies genre. Armed with an unmistakable, deeply emotional voice which (roams between) baritones to falsettos with ease. A talented multi instrumentalist, songwriter, arranger, and producer, at Karl's essence is collaboration. Collaboration with other artists like Laura Veirs, Mount Eerie, LAKE, Heatwarmer, and the Spacebomb collective? and collaboration between genres that no one else would think to combine like classical and reggae (his Coconutcracker Suite!). Blau currently holes up in his hobble, concocting another reggae collab this time between country blues and reggae.

In the past few years Blau has released two, critically acclaimed albums: Introducing Karl Blau (Raven Marching Band Records/Bella Union) and Out Her Space (Bella Union), and consequently announced to entirely new audiences in both the US, Europe and beyond. As an artist who as often been described as ahead of his time ­ it's possible the rest of us are finally catching up.

About Al's Den

Head downstairs at the Crystal Hotel to hang out in this music venue named for Al Winter, Portland's gambling overlord who, in the 1940s, managed his vast empire that spanned the Pacific Northwest and into Las Vegas from this very location. Today, we hold live music, artist residencies, pre- and post-concert performances and more.
