Blue Apollo is a Dallas-based artist that makes soulful, lyrically rich pop music. Inspired by multiple genres, his music blends a host of influences together to result in a timeless sound. Whether he’s on the acoustic stage or with a full band, Blue Apollo’s performances carry an authenticity that captures the audience.
Growing up between San Diego, San Francisco, and Austin, Blue Apollo first began experimenting with lyrics and music in early high school. After a few more years of school, he set out to bring his polished sound to stages across Dallas. Early shows were met with great success as a fan base quickly solidified on SMU’s campus and within the local music scene. His first EP, "Light-Footed Hours," came out in April 2016 and included the single: “Walls". Success of the first record and early performances quickly opened doors to bigger shows including opening for Nelly at the Moody Coliseum, American Aquarium at Trees Dallas, Lawrence at Gas Monkey, and Cherub at Rhodes College (Memphis, TN). The EP was also added to rotation at 67 different CMJ radio stations across the country.
Blue Apollo's most recent EP, "When You Ask for Rain," was produced by Chris Grainger in Nashville, TN and released September 6th, 2018. To celebrate, Blue Apollo headlined a show in the Cambridge Room at House of Blues Dallas. Now back in the studio, he is exploring new soundscapes and pushing his limits with plans to release new music in 2019. Follow @blueapollomusic to see it all come together.
