Barry Blaze


The arts lured Barry Blaze early in life. Raised around musically gifted parents and family the need to compose was part of his genetic make up. But as for pursuing a musical career, it was an encounter with God as a young adult that propelled him toward being a professional musician. His conviction to worship God through the arts began to shape his experiences and led to a series of songs and recordings that launched his music in the early '90s. Read more on Last.fm
The arts lured Barry Blaze early in life. Raised around musically gifted parents and family the need to compose was part of his genetic make up. But as for pursuing a musical career, it was an encounter with God as a young adult that propelled him toward being a professional musician. His conviction to worship God through the arts began to shape his experiences and led to a series of songs and recordings that launched his music in the early '90s. Blaze began writing and recording on his own which evolved into the euro-pop style music that became Code Of Ethics. This was a fresh new alternative to Christian Music of the time.

After a decade of success in the Christian music industry, he transitioned from performing for the masses to a focus on playing for an audience of One. In 2001 Blaze put his touring and writing on hold to join a staff of a growing church in North Florida. Learning to lead worship revealed something Blaze knew all along—God had made him to be an artist. More importantly, God had made him to help others understand that art and worship were designed to collaboratively reveal God’s glory.

And it was back to the writing room for Blaze. Three years ago after a life-threatening motorcycle accident on his favorite Florida drive, Blaze found himself with head trauma that included permanent hearing and vision loss. The physical tragedy led to a series of surgeries to partially restore his sight and hearing. Inner healing came as he let fear and vulnerability develop his faith into a first hand experience of trusting God with the good and horribly bad. In the album Patiently Waiting, Blaze lyrically invites listeners to join him in an exploration of reverence and thanks to a sovereign God who is faithful beyond all circumstance. The album’s contemporary melodies deliver an enjoyable blend of pop and praise sharing hope during a time of great difficulty. The inspiration behind the album’s title track was written during his recovery when Blaze found himself with a medicine-induced sleepless night.

The lyrics of the song convey his soul’s deepest wounds during suffering, while the music moves through the sound of contentment regardless of the circumstances. In addition to writing and producing his own music, Blaze is currently leading worship at a number of North Florida churches and is providing consultation and creative direction to church musicians and worship teams. He is also scheduled to release a new Code of Ethics CD that will be available for sale in the fall. Read more on Last.fm.
