About the Artist
This January, Courier (pseudonym for Nashville singer-songwriter Blake Mundell) releases his 13-song LP The Present Tense. In the single-driven world of pop music, Courier dares to return to the concept record with a unique perspective: by writing songs about the lives of his 13 closest friends. With influences ranging from Mat Kearney to Paul Simon to Bieber (yes, that Bieber), Courier gives listeners a glimpse into his community, and indirectly, into his own life, with a collection of songs that is as eclectic as the group of friends it's fashioned after.
A graduate of the Belmont Songwriting program, Blake studied under the tutelage of seasoned writers like Tom Douglas, James Elliot, and Thom Schuyler. He brings his experience as a thoughtful songwriter into the pop world in a way that moves head, heart, and feet.
