Hello, my name is Blaine Long & I'm a singer/songwriter based out of Arizona. I've been playing my original music in the bars and on any stage, big or small, since I was 16. I've opened for Clint Black, Jonny Lang, Beth Hart, John Hiatt, Justin Moore, Gary Allan, Martin Zellar, Edwin McCain, & more. You may have also seen me on NBCs The Voice Season 11 (with a 3-chair turn & my song ranked #2 on iTunes rock chart).
Thunder & Lightnin’ delivers pure Americana driven through a broad mix of musical genres. The band’s banjo, fiddle, guitar and vocal stylings stem from roots of bluegrass and mountain folk traditions.
