Blau is a multi-instrumentalist, singer, and DIY icon who helped turn his hometown of Anacortes, Washington, into an indie-music mecca. He has released more than 40 records in 20-odd years, many self-released in handmade packaging and mailed to subscribers, and others on iconic indie Northwest labels K and knw-yr-own. Blau has also toured and recorded for years with Laura Veirs, The Microphones, Little Wings, D+, and Earth. Martine, known for his distinctive production work on music by My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists, and Laura Veirs, recalled first being introduced by Veirs to Blau's early music. "I was transfixed by Karl's voice and completely absorbed by the world of sound he had created. I felt like I had been shown one of the great hidden treasures of music."
