Blake Guthrie is a freelance writer and award-winning singer/songwriter based in Atlanta, GA. He has won–-or been a finalist in–-numerous songwriting competitions, including the Top Ten, the Eddies Attic Open Mic Shootout, the Independent Music Awards, the KRCL Performing Songwriter Showcase (Top Ten) and the International Songwriting Competition. For two years in a row he was selected as “Critics Choice” for “Best Acoustic Act/Singer/Songwriter in Atlanta” by Creative Loafing, the largest newsweekly in the Southeast (this was BEFORE he started writing for the magazine).
He also wants you to think that he didn't write this himself, so you'll think he's more of a big deal than he really is.

Here's a pic of Blake at one of his many day jobs that he's toiled at over the years. He's not unhappy, he always looks like this.
