Blake Hazard started playing in subways in New York City in her teens, graduating to playing smaller clubs in the city. She made her way to Boston to study at Harvard University, where she continued to play live, and eventually met John Dragonetti (Jack Drag). They moved to LA, and broke up in 2005, but after hearing the songs that each had written about their parting, reunited to form The Submarines. The Subs went on to make three records and remix EPs for the Canadian label Nettwerk Records. The band toured the US and Europe many times, making festival and television appearances, with their songs licensed extensively for film and TV worldwide.
Blake recorded her album The Eleanor Islands with producer Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby, Yellowbirds) in Brooklyn in 2013.
She recorded her new album Possibilities at Sea with producer Thom Monahan (Vetiver, Wild Nothing, Fruit Bats) in Los Angeles.
A number of tracks from the album were remixed : Xander Singh (formerly of Passion Pit and Pepper Rabbit) remixed "Before the Ice", which premiered on FLOOD magazine, White Sea (Morgan Kibby of M83) remixed the track "Oh Anatolia", which premiered via Blackbook, while "Hey" was remixed by Belgian indie-electronic artist Styrofoam, who has previously produced remixes for the Postal Service, Jimmy Eat World, and the Submarines, among others.
