Sydney’s Blake Cateris Releases His New Track ‘Concentrate’
With three solo singles under his belt, Blake Cateris releases his fourth solo single, Concentrate.
“This song was born out of the suspicion of living life with AD/HD undiagnosed and all the productivity, functionality and self-esteem issues that come with that.
I began to notice issues with maintaining my attention on specific tasks, whether fun things like song writing & movies or mundane things like answering an email from the ATO. After listening to the noise on social media of articles & memes of “if any of these apply to you, you have AD/HD” that most likely were not written by professionals in the field, I started to develop my suspicions.
The song kind of just turned into a confession of some weird things I’ve noticed about myself that likely no one else cares to notice. Maybe we all have some weird things about ourselves that no one else notices.”
Australian Sydneysider, Blake Cateris fuses the genres of folk singer-songwriter, with his punk music background and has a musical resume that many dream of, having shared the stage with the likes of CJ Ramone, Bodyjar, Hard-Ons, Gyroscope, 28 Days and The Getaway Plan, as well as holding a nine-year residency at the iconic Frankie’s Pizza By The Slice.
Cateris is turning over a new leaf with his folk inspired singer-songwriter solo project, drawing inspiration from the writings of songwriters that connect at the core of the soul, such as Frank Turner, Butch Walker, Dave Hause and Laura Jane Grace, and fusing the stories with the honesty of real-life events.
With many listeners enjoying the airtime of Blake’s music, over Triple J and FBI radio, as well as various appearances on numerous podcasts, Blake is passionate about sharing vulnerable and real experiences of life through a raw, stripped-back sound, enabling the authentic storytelling to take centre stage and to connect with the hearts and lives of listeners.
