Blind Divine is an American band, whose music is classified as trip-hop, shoegaze and ambient. Their style is also a blended mix of genres, including dream pop, Britpop and hypnotic rock.

The music of Blind Divine is best described as art music. These prolific and experienced artists have embraced a creative style that is as unconventional as it is carefully crafted, allowing subtle nuances to collide with deliberate profoundness. Their “musical paintings” may be a thirty second interlude designed to lure the listener into an otherworldly dreamscape, where floating rhythms, ethereal vocals, haunting piano, or effected guitars become a palette of many hues, a sonic texture that conjures a visual aesthetic. While others embrace a mix of moody beats and emotional vocals, where the “art music” becomes the theme of an enigmatic dream that is as strange as it is inescapably familiar in a delicate and abstract world, imbuing an ultra awareness of emotion, love, hate, fear, pain, life, death, elation, or faith, and inviting the imagination to ruminate.

In addition to their own, self-released albums, their music has been licensed by MTV, VH1, A&E, Discovery Channel, History Channel, Biography Channel, Disney Channel, Sony Pictures, CMTV, Soap Network, Weather Channel, Travel Channel, Style Network, Comedy central, Noggin, Logo, E!, WETV, Animal Planet, National Geographic, The Learning Channel, NBC, CBS, and MSNBC, as well as appearing on the Taking Lives DVD, Clive Barker’s feature film, “The Midnight Meat Train,” and composing the soundtrack to the independent New Zealand feature film Orphans and Angels.
