Blake Hazard, one half of indie pop duo The Submarines, started playing in subways in New York City in her teens, graduating to playing clubs in the city. She made her way to Boston to study at Harvard University, continuing to play on the street, then in clubs like The Middle East and TT the Bears, making her earliest demos with Mark Sandman of Morphine and Paul Q Kolderie. She became part of the Fort Apache family, making an EP at the Fort studios and opening shows for numerous Boston indie luminaries.

A remix collaboration with John Dragonetti, of the band Jack Drag, led to the recording of Blake’s first full length album Little Airplane in 2002. The two became a couple, touring in the US and Europe in each other’s bands, and moving together to Los Angeles in 2004.

They broke up in 2005, but after hearing the songs that each had written about their parting, reunited to form The Submarines. These songs made up their first album,Declare a New State (2006), which was mastered as a wedding present by their friend, Jeff Lipton.

The Submarines went on to make two more records, Honeysuckle Weeks (2008) and Love Notes / Letter Bombs (2011) and released a remix compilation of songs from Honeysuckle Weeks. These albums were licensed extensively for film, television and advertising, and came out on Canadian label Nettwerk Records. The band toured the US and Europe extensively, making many festival and television appearances.They separated in 2012.

In 2013 Blake recorded the album The Eleanor Islands with producer Sam Cohen in Brooklyn, NY. She self-released the album, which was also licensed for film and tv, in the same year. By that time she had moved to Istanbul Turkey, returning after more than a year to Los Angeles in the winter of 2014.

She has lent guest vocals and co-wrote with The M Machine on their track The Palace(OWSLA), and Eligh and Amplive with Grieve’s track Beautiful Addiction (Legendary Music).

So far, 2017 has seen the release of three singles through AWAL/Kobalt, with accompanying remixes by friends Xander Singh (former Passion Pit), Morgan Kibby (of White Sea and M83) and DJ Styrofoam.

With Special Guest Inara George (of The Bird & The Bee)
"Inara George is the kind of artist who'll never get called experimental, because her music sounds so sweet. Yet she is a risk-taker -- just one whose voice is clear and accessible.
In the past few years… this L.A. native has worked her way through shoegazing folk with the band Merrick, a Joni Mitchell influence on her 2005 solo debut, internationalist pop with the Bird and the Bee, and Andrews Sisters harmonies with the Living Sisters.” (Los Angeles Times)
Inara is set to release a new record in 2018.
