About The BGP

The BGP

Foster the People meets The 1975. That's perhaps the simplest way to describe sophisticated arrangements and harmonies that have come to define The BGP. Merging the classic tones of yacht rock era bands like Fleetwood Mac with a modern digital aesthetic, The BGP brings to life a stage experience that is one part session musicianship, and one part child-like-joy. Says Krister Bjornson Axel of Chillfiltr: "[The band's] mix of upbeat vibes and feel-good melodies always comes as the welcome addition to a busy day."

A brotherhood hailing from the ‘Fair town' of Puyallup, WA, The BGP is lead by 2 frontmen Brandon Ghorley - and Phinisey, and features drummer Josh Demorow, guitarist Phil Hopper, as well as a regular cast of favorite local musicians. A loyal regional following has grown as a result of The BGP's willingness to play literally anywhere, from Seattle, to LA, to Denver, to Boise, to Portland, and everywhere in between.
Since 2020, 7 new singles have been released by the band, including '20 Ways' (featured in a GoogleNest ad) and 'Gravity.'

The band recently opened for Allen Stone and Teddy Swims, and has previously opened for Andy Grammar and David Choi. Fall college dates are planned for Spring of 2023.

About Blake Braley

Blake Braley

Blake Braley is a soul singer songwriter based out of Spokane, WA. The music draws inspiration from soul and funk classics of the 60s and 70s with a modern twist. It's highly groove driven, melodic, feel good and sensitive.

Blake was a three sport athlete for most his life. It wasn't until after graduating high school and meeting co-writer and best friend, Tristan Hart Pierce, that he decided to give music a shot. Since starting music in early 2016, Blake has released two E.P.s (‘Better' 2019 & ‘Blake Braley 2020). When he's not performing his original music, you can find him occasionally playing keys for fellow PNW soul artist, Allen Stone.
