The Blakes are an American indie rock band from Seattle, Washington (Not to be confused with the short-lived New Jersey band The Blakes). The band had several independent releases before signing to Seattle record label Light In The Attic, and have since had two more studio releases: The Blakes LP and Streets EP.

Prior to the band's conception, brothers Garnet and Snow Keim had busked around the country writing music in the late '90s, ultimately leading them to Seattle, WA. The band formed in 2001 when the Keim brothers were served coffee by their future drummer, Bob Husak, in a local Seattle coffeehouse (Tully's). Named after a dream that bassist Snow Keim experienced involving an encounter with 18th century English poet William Blake in a metal shop, The Blakes moved to Los Angeles and began their musical career, playing shows and living for nearly two years in a Days Inn motel. The band put out a string of self-released EPs and eventually moved back to Seattle. In 2005, The Blakes gained major exposure from their fourth release, Little Whispers, when Seattle radio station KEXP began playing and promoting their music. In 2006, the band released their self-titled LP and toured extensively. In the following year, the band signed to Seattle independent record label Light In the Attic. In 2007 on their new label, the band released the Streets EP, and later remastered and reissued The Blakes LP.
