My Name is Gage Blevins and I have gone by 12Gage for nearly 15 years as a performing artist. I have been blessed to play on a few blues cruises and featured by Leon Blue (one of BB Kings former piano players), Theodis Ealy (The 'Stand Up In It' man), and several more. Near my home town in the panhandle of Florida I played two blues festivals, one featuring Tab Benoit and the other headlined by myself and band. I performed at the Florida Stare University Garnet Key ceremonies in 2009 and 2010. I have recorded with members of Kansas and been a guest performer in many instances. About five years ago I transitioned from a band to a solo artist branching out to playing keyboard and harmonica as needed live and utilized my music production degree and music education degree in recording my own music. This avenue led me to be a first place winner in the Ernie Ball/ Guitar Center presents Eric Clapton's Play the Crossroads Guitar Festival of 2019. The music I had submitted was recorded by me and all instruments played by myself. My performances vary from just an acoustic guitar and voice  to an array of instruments and pedals that give the client a professional big band sound for the price of a solo artist. My more elaborate setups include me playing multiple instruments and voicings in the same song, in other words, until you have eyes on the stage you may not realize it is a one man show!
