Blake Hellaby

Born:

Blake Hellaby is a multi-instrumentalist whose career started in Cape Town, South Africa, but has gone onto perform across Africa and Europe. His music journey started with classical piano lessons at the age of 7 and continued right throughout school. At the age of 14, Blake was introduced to jazz for the first time and was immediately drawn to everything about it. He then started saxophone lessons and was taught by the legendary South African saxophonist, Buddy Wells. The classical expectations of Blake’s school kept him very busy and jazz lessons only started when he finished high-school and started a degree in jazz at the University of Cape Town
