Blake “Wiggy” Girndt is a musician from the state of Massachusetts. A fan of comic books and anything out of the ordinary, he has been in the music industry for almost two decades singing, playing, and producing his music with a number of different bands.
One of Girndt’s most notable projects has been his work with the television series Lost. In 2006 he played drums for the concept band The Others, and after a fan video went viral he and other members made a song for nearly every episode for seasons 3, 4, 5, and 6. Girndt felt a special connection with Lost, writing on his Artist Trove that, “If Lost taught us anything, it’s that you can’t do it alone.”
His musical talent goes back farther than the series. Prior to Lost, Blake Girndt was the drummer in a band called The Thungs. Hailing from Easthampton, Massachusetts, the band was best known for their pop-rock and experimental sound. While performing with The Thungs he was given the nickname “Wiggy,” which former fans of The Thungs still call him.
Sadly The Others and The Thungs aren’t bands you can go see today, but that doesn’t mean Girndt has stopped creating music. His more recent musical endeavor has been with a band called The I Want You where he plays guitar and sings vocals with fellow bandmates Jonathan Donaldson and Jim Gerdeman. Along with singing and playing guitar he helps produce their music, and his talents were shown to extend beyond music when he animated the band’s music video to Three Short Days.
Currently living in Boston, Blake Girndt spends most of his time working on material for The I Want You, who perform at different venues throughout Massachusetts . You can also see Girndt on guitar with Walter Sickert and the Army of the Broken Toys. He also owns a windshield repair business in New Jersey.
