THIS ONE’S FOR THE BROKEN HEARTED FEW A CD RELEASE CONCERT AND BENEFIT FOR SAFE HAVEN’S CAMPAIGN TO PROVIDE AFFORDABLE HOUSING FOR VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE $10 General Admission $5 Students WEBSITE: www.cameronblakemusic.com ABOUT THE CONCERT: Safe Haven (http://safehavenministries.org/) is embarking on a new initiative in 2015 to help provide victims of domestic abuse with safe, affordable housing options which are currently hard to come by. I will be performing an evening of song to celebrate the release of my new album Alone On The World Stage and fundraise to help end this housing crisis. The title of the event “This One’s For the Broken Hearted Few” comes from the opening line of my song Detroit that describes the human consequences of a city undergoing a devastating collapse in its’ economy, education and security. I often write about current events because my deepest desire as an artist is to use my music to bring about social change, particularly in issues relating to class and poverty. Many of the songs on my new album, Alone On The World Stage, elicit a personal, empathetic response to the oppressed, which is why I was inspired to partner with Safe Haven for this CD release event. I am honored to be joined by Dr. David Crump (Professor of Religion and Theology at Calvin College) to guide the audience through the evening’s set list with selected anecdotes, poems and thoughts drawn from the themes of the song lyrics. This will be a beautiful and fitting way to present Alone On The World Stage.

““Hide and Go Seek” is enlightening, relaxing, and just downright enjoyable. It is gently fraught with meaning to keep you entertained and keep you thinking. A talented songwriter and musician with a deliciously soothing voice, Cameron Blake really delivers with this one.”
