Blake Shaw


blakenewHello! My name is Blake Shaw and I’ve been pretty busy playing here at the University of Iowa with the UISO, UI Chamber Ensemble, the Jazz Vespers, the Jazz Repertoire Ensemble, Guitar Ensemble (on bass), Latin Jazz Ensemble, the Johnson County Landmark and a few jazz combos. As you can see the university has a lot of playing opportunities. After fisnishing my Bachelor’s in Music I took a year off to gig and gain experience which took me as far as Australia. Now I’m back as a TA for the jazz department getting my Masters degree (and playing a bunch of Bach with Volkan). The bass studio is pretty much the coolest studio in the school of music and Prof. Orhon is awesome. It’s a great time to be a bassist 🙂
