You Raise Me Up – Performed by BLAKE featuring Sarah Boulton – Holders Season 2015
‪#‎SarahBoulton‬ “On Saturday March 21, I performed at Holders Season in beautiful Barbados and had the opportunity to open for British vocal group, Blake. One of my favourite parts of the evening was when the group had me up to share the stage with them in this gorgeous version of “You Raise Me Up” which they recorded in support of those who struggle with breast cancer. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

Stephen Bowman: Our new #BLAKE tour show features solo songs from each of the singers, this is mine. Nat King Cole’s ‘When I Fall In Love’ – such a joy to sing this classic. Wish I’d been around in that era of music, so many beautiful songs and great singers. X

Vocal group has devoted support

Blake with Dame Shirley Bassey

Blake with Dame Shirley Bassey

When Dame Shirley Bassey first saw male vocal group Blake perform on ITV’s this Morning eight years ago she was so smitten that she requested they perform at her birthday party that same night.

Since then Dame Shirley has watched Blake in many live concerts, including a recent preview of their latest show called ‘In Harmony’, currently touring the UK.

It’s this show that Blake will be bringing to Eastbourne’s Royal Hippodrome on Saturday July 18. They will be performing two hours of uplifting and emotional music from the pop, classical and musical worlds, songs picked from six albums spanning their eight year career, including their BRIT-Award winning debut album, and their latest offering ‘In Harmony’. Combined with chat and comedy, live instruments, stunning projected videos and dramatic lighting, Blake are assured to thrill anyone with a love of powerful songs and ratpack fun.

Blake has an impressive CV of achievements including multi-platinum selling albums, regular appearances on TV, three performances in front of the Queen and various worldwide tours to Asia, America, Russia and Europe. However, it’s the constant support of loyal fans that has contributed to their long lasting success, from performing alongside them on stage to funding them through PledgeMusic to create fifth album ‘In Harmony’. Box office 01323 802020.

When the voice of an angel sings…listen 🎶
BLAKE singing ‘Moon River’

Ahead of their show at The Little Theatre later this month, Stephen Bowman, from ‪#‎Blake‬, reveals his ‘firsts’.
First Up: Stephen Bowman, from classical man-band Blake

10029406-large

FIRST MEMORY: Wow, let me think. I think the first thing I can genuinely remember was banging away on a piano in our very first home. It was a white piano my parents bought from an auction house and it didn’t work very well, the frame was broken. I can remember being very young, probably only about two or three, sitting down with this huge set of keys in front of me and making this huge racket, but thinking I was brilliant.
FIRST SCHOOL: St Stephen’s Primary, in Bath. I was a very fussy eater as a child so consequently I struggled with the meals they cooked at school. I became very, very good at hiding the food on my plate, often on the floor or inside crisp packets.
FIRST ALBUM: I think it was an Enigma album, called… hang on, let me look this up… right, it was MCMXC a.D. I was an Enigma fan. As I started creeping towards my teenage years I was very much a fan of world music and the new age sound that was quite popular at the time. I remember burning joss-sticks in my room and thinking I was very in touch with nature. In retrospect, I probably wasn’t.
FIRST GIG: I’m pretty sure it was Blur at a very small venue in Bath and it would have been the mid ’90s. By that point my tastes had turned fairly Brit-pop. It was always Blur and Pulp for me, never Oasis. I remember they were using a Hammond organ, which wasn’t something I’d heard live before.
Blur also had very memorable lyrics. I discovered the joy of standing along and singing with the band on stage, and I kind of know what that feels like now. As a teenager I was in bands and sang that style of music. I got into musicals in school and after that got into classical music college in London, but my enjoyment of music came really by listening to contemporary rather than classical.
FIRST TIME ON STAGE: It probably would have been when I was 15, when I played Jesus in Godspell. It’s the most difficult role I’ve ever played. You have to remember about half of the Bible and you have to be able to tell endless parables. You also sing many beautiful songs as well. It was a great baptism of fire – excuse the pun – into musicals.
FIRST JOB: I sold hot dogs at the Christmas fair in Bath, where I grew up. I lasted two weeks and by the end I never wanted to eat a hot dog again.
FIRST LOVE: I was about 16, on holiday with my parents in Italy and I fell in love with a Spanish girl who was on holiday as well. It was a wonderful holiday romance. Being 15 I was convinced I was going to marry her, of course. I didn’t, but we’re still friends.
FIRST CAR: A very beaten up BMW 3 Series from 1986. It was white, which was not a good colour. It had a lot of rust. It lasted about three months before the top of the engine blew off and I had to find another car.
FIRST HOLIDAY: I grew up in Bath and we used to travel down to Devon for summers. We used to go to a beautiful beach called Saunton Sands, one of the UK’s longest beaches, which had wonderful rockpools that I spent hours fishing crabs out of when I was young.
Going to Devon when I was about five or six was the biggest adventure ever. It was like Jurassic Park meets a trip to Mars for me.
We perform in Barnstaple once in a while now and it’s so bizarre going back somewhere you remember from about 30 years ago, trying to see it as you remember through a child’s eyes; the sand dunes you thought were so huge at the time aren’t at all.
FIRST SHOW WITH BLAKE: Technically our first performance as a group was at Wembley Stadium. It was the Charity Shield match, Chelsea versus Middlesbrough. We sang Nessun Dorma in front of about 87,000 people, I think it was. We’d done a lot of rehearsals and were aiming to do some smaller shows to launch the group but we were given this opportunity and it really was too much of an amazing opportunity to turn down.
We rehearsed like crazy, walked out to the middle of the pitch and our hands were shaking like crazy. We managed the performance, but I don’t think I’ve ever had so much adrenaline running through my body, ever. It was quite a rush.
The room for the artists afterwards is the same as the players, so we went into the changing rooms and just kind of collapsed. It was very overwhelming. We’ve performed several times since at Twickenham and Wembley and now it’s something we’re comfortable with, but that first one was a bit of a challenge.
Our first actual show I’m pretty sure was Cheltenham Town Hall and I remember coming off and punching the air.
Blake play at #TheLittleTheatre on Friday, May 29. Tickets are £17.

ABC Music is delighted to present the fifth album from Brit Award-winning classical crossover trio Blake: In Harmony.
As the title suggests, this album is all about the power of harmony – to soothe the spirit, to make the heart soar, and to create spine-tingling moments. And who better to showcase vocal harmony than this remarkable trio? Re-interpreting compositions such as Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game, Elvis Presley’s Love Me Tender and Sting’s Fields of Gold, the album proves Blake’s versatility, emotional power and technical expertise. Inspired by other harmonising legends such as The Three Tenors, The Bee Gees and The Lettermen, the trio – comprised of Ollie Baines, Stephen Bowman and Humphrey Berney – have drawn together a unique variety of songs from the juxtaposing worlds of classical and pop music for this new studio album, resulting in a musical experience like no other.
After eight years of global success, Blake have arrived at their next chapter. ‘In Harmony’ is that chapter, and they’re set to once again prove themselves as some of the best performers in modern adult contemporary music.

Love seeing guys in the news ❤🎶

Our page feature in this months Journal Magazine, talking about our UK tour shows & singing worldwide

from Beach Boys Title

From the Beach Boys to Beatles for harmony singers, BLAKE
The British trio of harmony singers, Blake, has captivated international audiences with their fusion of popular and classical music.
“Our appeal probably comes down to the fact we tend to cover songs loved worldwide,” says Stephen Bowman from the Brit-award winning group.
“The music we sing is music already familiar to people. We sing it in a unique way and in many cases it’s songs people haven’t heard sung in harmony but the melody is known to them.
“But we really take a song apart and take it down to its bare bones. As we start to put it together again using our approach the difference can be quite distinct and sometimes people will not necessarily realise it’s a cover.”
Ollie Baines, Humphrey Berney and Stephen are on their biggest UK tour which arrives at Lincoln Theatre Royal on April 28.
The concert will celebrate Blake’s fifth studio album titled In Harmony, as well as serving up a performance back catalogue from the first four albums.
‪#‎InHarmony‬ includes versions of classics such as Forever by the Beach Boys, Fields of Gold by Sting and Wicked Game by Chris Isaak.
“Even if we kept doing this until we were in our 80s we wouldn’t get through all the songs we want to sing.
“But as a group we have kept away from doing anything by the Beatles. There are other artists we have covered some people might consider more sacred but for us the Beatles have this certain halo around their music.”
But what is playing in the stereo when Stephen Bowman wants to switch off from the day job?
“A lot of musicians surprise in terms of what they listen to in their own time and it’s true of me as well,” says the son of a German rock guitarist and a British opera-singing mother who went to study at the London Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
“I tend to like ambient electronic music in my own time and artists like Jon Hopkins. I listen to a lot of house music and glitch hop; there’s a DJ and friend of mine Janette Slack who is great. There is some hardcore electronic music I like as well when I am driving, biking or at the gym.”

Chills from Blake  My Blake CD's

This is why listening to BLAKE gives us chills ♥

CBC Music How Music Works: why do some people get chills when they listen to their favourite music?
If you love music, you probably know the feeling. You’re listening to one of your very favourite songs, and there’s that amazing part that never fails to give you chills.
It’s a phenomenon that’s also known as “musical frisson.” But why is it happening?
That was the question that a team of researchers at the Montreal Neurological Institute at McGill University decided to explore by monitoring people’s brains while they listened to their favourite music—and what they found was that the music stimulated the same reward circuits as food, sex and drugs.
According to researcher Valorie Salimpoor, the human brain has evolved to reinforce adaptive behaviours such as eating and reproduction; so when people eat or have sex, the brain releases the pleasure drug dopamine to reinforce that behaviour. Some drugs also cause dopamine to be released.
But when their team used Positron Emission Tomography, or PET, to watch what happened in people’s brains when they listened to music they considered “intensely pleasurable,” they saw the same chain of events occur.
And interestingly, when the participants were anticipating the most pleasurable parts of their favourite songs, a different area of the brain got in on the action.
“Right before people experience that peak emotional response, which in our experience was measured with chills, participants show dopamine release in a different region of the reinforcement circuit and this is the caudate nucleus,” said Salimpoor on CBC’s Quirks & Quarks.
The caudate nucleus, she explained, is a region of the brain with strong connections to the prefrontal cortex, which houses complex thinking, and gives rise to the emotional pleasure we derive from music.
“It suggests that aesthetic stimuli can actually work on this system that’s there to reinforce biologically adaptive behaviours,” she says. “And the fact that an intellectual reward that’s housed in the prefrontal cortex can stimulate this part of our brain, it almost suggests that as human beings we’ve been evolved to appreciate aesthetic stimuli.”
In other words, humans may have actually evolved to appreciate music, and those chills you’re feeling are your body’s way of saying that’s a good thing.

Spread over 2 pages in this months Attitude Magazine, yours truly, taking a little time to talk about nakedness, confidence and ‘safety in the bedroom’. Too much? Hell, I hit 35 this year, my beard is going grey, people aren’t going to want half naked photos of me much longer, so I’ll enjoy this mini ego boost whilst I still can 😉
❤Such a beautiful man❤

I am ALL About That BLAKE
Yesterday on a 13 hour road trip…snow, ice and traffic :/
I sang this song over and over…
‘You Needed Me’
I cried a tear, you wiped it dry
I was confused, you cleared my mind
I sold my soul, you bought it back for me
And held me up and gave me dignity
Somehow you needed me
You gave me strength to stand alone again
To face the world out on my own again
You put me high upon a pedestal
So high that I could almost see eternity
You needed me, you needed me
And I can’t believe it’s you I can’t believe it’s true
I needed you and you were there
And I’ll never leave, why should I leave, I’d be a fool
‘Cause I finally found someone who really cares
You held my hand when it was cold
When I was lost, you took me home
You gave me hope when I was at the end
And turned my lies back into truth again
You even called me friend
You gave me strength to stand alone again
To face the world out on my own again
You put me high upon a pedestal
So high that I could almost see eternity
You needed me, you needed me
You needed me, you needed me

BLAKE to perform at the Theatre Royal Windsor
Sunday 15 February 2015
The three-piece are set to bring their refined new sound to the Theatre Royal with In Harmony – their newest and biggest tour yet.
Once again the trio are looking for talented local choirs to join them on stage. Over the past five years they have been joined by more than 250 choirs from around the UK, as well as from overseas.
Band member Humphrey Berney said: “We three guys got our musical starts in life through performing in choirs so it’s been inspirational to see so many UK groups sending us their YouTube clips for consideration over the years.”
Choirs simply need to email their latest videos to the Blake website and the chosen groups will perform on five big ensemble songs, as well as present their own solo song to the audience.
Ollie Baines added: “We’re delighted that our campaign to get local choirs on professional stages results in new solo stars being found.
“Singing within a choir is the best way to build confidence as a vocalist.
The UK should be proud of its choral heritage.”
For details about how to enter a choir visit http://blakeofficial.com/
Tickets cost £21 for the February 11 show and can be bought by calling the box office on 01962 840440 or visiting http://www.theatreroyalwindsor.co.uk/details.php?id=329

BLAKE Announce ‘In Harmony’ 2015 Tour
(UK) Brit-Award winners Blake are back and better than ever, with a refined new sound, new songs and their biggest UK tour yet. Re-inspired by the enduring trio harmonies of The Three Tenors, The Bee Gees, The Lettermen & Boyz-II-Men, BLAKE’s latest concert show entitled ‘In Harmony’ sees them combining classic songs from their first four albums, with exclusive new songs from their critically acclaimed 5th album ‘In Harmony’
. Musicals, pop and classical songs collide in the group’s most eclectic stage spectacular yet, accompanied by great musicians and impressive video projections. Returning from tours to the United States, Russia, Eastern Europe, South Africa & Asia, we expect their famous and hilarious rat-pack banter with the audience to feature some fascinating new stories. Following on from previous years, Blake are once again searching the UK for talented local choirs to join them on stage as part of their ‘In Harmony’ tour. Over the last five years the group have been joined by more than 250 local choirs around the UK and overseas, in venues as far apart as Manchester, Moscow and Manila. – See more at: http://renownedforsound.com/index.php/news-blake-announce-in-harmony-2015-tour/

Meet The Classic Boys Next Door
2663531028
Stephen Bowman Humphrey Berney Oliver Baines
BLAKE are handsome, posh, love the Queen and are on their way to sing in Lancashire
With their trademark harmonies and chiselled good looks, British classical boy band Blake have won fans all over the world.
If that’s not enough, one of the singers, Ollie Baines, is pals with Prince William and Kate.
“The Queen gives you a few butterflies when you know she’s out there,” said bass baritone singer Stephen Bowman, who has performed in front of the monarch at Buckingham Palace.
“We’ve played in 33 countries, have done 150 television shows and 700 concerts, but the most daunting show was when we sang at Wimbledon’s Centre Court.
“The Queen and Prince Philip were there for the opening, and it was such a prestigious, quintessentially English occasion.
“I remember whispering: ‘Don’t mess this up boys.’”
The band, who named themselves after the poet William Blake, teamed up on Facebook eight years ago.
Just two days later, they signed a £1m record deal.
“One day we were performing at a friend’s wedding – a fortnight later we were giving our jobs up.
“I worked for a computer company, and it seemed like a massive gamble.
“But joining Blake completely changed my life.”
The group has sold more than a million records, bridging the gap between pop and opera.
And followers of the number one band include an army of middle-aged women old enough to be their mothers, The Blakettes.
The band, who will sing songs from their new album and classic numbers when they make their first appearance in the Ribble Valley this month, can also count many female stars among their fans, including Cilla Black, Joan Collins and Lady Ga Ga.
They were also asked to sing at Dame Shirley Bassey’s 70th birthday party.
“It always gives us a kick to think that people our parents adored are saying how much they enjoy our music,” added Stephen.
But if Blake sound a bit too wholesome to be true, the singer is adamant the boys are more rock and roll than their squeaky-clean image suggests.
“We’re billed as a classical band, but we’re the hardest partying band out there.
“Some people assume that because we are classically trained we are a bit po-faced, but we love a party and having fun with our audience.
“We don’t script any of the shows, it is all ad-lib and people seem to really enjoy that.”
The band was a four-piece until founding member Jules Knight left in 2013 to join the cast of Holby City as new doctor Harry Tressler.
Despite the line-up changes, Bowman insists the secret to Blake’s success is the comradeship of the group.
“The thing people most enjoy about our shows, I think, is the fact we are great friends and that vibe on stage sparks off a great interaction with our audience.”

Blake, Clitheroe The Grand Venue Theatre, January 23. £20. 01200 421599.

I stumbled upon Stephen in February 2013. I was so impressed by his dedication and interaction with friends on Twitter, that I joined, followed and Liked everything Stephen/Blake I could find! I bought all of their Cd’s from Amazon.UK. I was so excited when I found a link to download a song from iTunes.Uk 🙂 Which I did! But then, I couldn’t “get” back home to USA on iTunes 😦 Nothing I clicked on worked. I asked Stephen for help in getting me back home! He sent me a link and told me what to do. It worked! He got me back home ❤
I have been helping run his Official Fan Club and I am ❦Blake Passion♪♫
My dream has been to meet them, hug them, see/hear them sing Live, talk (in person) to them ❤ I'm sure there will be laughter and tears(mine) I have promised I wouldn't stop breathing…yea right 😉
Doors to my dreams are wide open! Pledge Music has provided paths to reach my Passion ❤ I have pledged with my heart (not my wallet) and I will be In the Studio and having Afternoon Tea with Blake and meeting other friends ❤ that I have met online! …and Baking with Blake if it works out…?
I am #sohappy 🙂
Let's meet in London! After seeing Stephen's video update yesterday about the In Studio experience I am SO glad I signed up for that. There are but a few places left for it…You too can make your dreams come true.

Car Torque …. with musical trio Blake
by Matt Westcott
Updated on 6:06pm Monday 18th August 2014 in News

BRIT-Award winners Blake – Humphrey Berney, Stephen Bowman and Oliver Baines – are back with a refined new sound, new songs and their biggest UK tour yet.

Re-inspired by the trio harmonies of The Three Tenors, The Bee Gees, The Lettermen and Boyz-II-Men, Blake’s latest concert show entitled ‘In Harmony’ sees them combining classic songs from their first four award winning albums, with exclusive new songs from their upcoming fifth album ‘In Harmony’.

The boys are appearing at the Gala Theatre in Durham on September 19.
Tickets are £20.

For more details contact the Box Office on 0300 026 6600.

For more details about the boys visit http://www.blakeofficial.com

What was your first car?
3184151
Humphrey Berney: A Mini Mayfair, above, which I kitted out to look like a Cooper, plus adding a new head. I loved that car – a legal go-kart. Cheap to run, full of character, racing seats, wheel and gear stick. Brilliant! RIP Monty.

Stephen Bowman: My first car was a white Vauxhall estate, with a diesel engine and over 185,000 miles. It cost my dad about £300 and the agreement was that once it died I could have a pretty car. The old girl refused to give in – in the end I drove it into a wall.

Oliver Baines: The first car I drove regularly was a hand-me-down Mitsubishi Shogun called Big Sid. It was nearly 18 when it came to me, so we were equals in that respect, but the poor old boy didn’t last long, and after wheezing and puffing his way along for a few more years, the head gasket finally blew outside my school gates – too much derision! He was retired on permanent loan to some friends in Scotland for farm work. I believe they paid us £50. A great way to learn about the pitfalls of old cars though!

How many times did it take to pass your test?

Humphrey: Twice. Outrageous! I failed on not entering a yellow hatched box when turning right. Second time, I had a great Scottish examiner. Monty the Mini was waiting when I finished and I drove straight to school. The girls were impressed!

Stephen: Aged 17, nothing in the world mattered more to me than passing my test, which is probably why it took me three attempts to reduce the nerves enough not to muck it up. My poor BSM instructor was pretty glad to see the back of me!

Oliver: I learned to drive at university with a man called Geoffrey who swore almost constantly. My lessons were thus highly amusing and extremely informative – alas I never recorded one of his rants. When I took my test, the examiner failed me for overtaking a lorry on the dual carriageway after the mile marker for my exit. This caused the most almighty argument between him and my instructor in the back seat, who – with multiple expletives – pointed out, that this was perfectly normal driving practice and something else about arses and elbows. Needless to say, this didn’t help.

Who would be your ideal fantasy passenger and where would you go?

Humphrey: Jenson button. I would get him to take me straight to McLaren so we could take lots of cars out on the track and get some tips. I love driving on the track. I’ve done quite a lot on motorbikes as well. Brilliant! If Jenson was not available then Stirling Moss – a true legend.
2562610
Stephen: For the perfect car journey I’d want the company of a gorgeous lady with plenty of stories to tell, so it would have to be Joanna Lumley, above. Loved her ever since watching reruns of The Avengers when I was a kid. I’d drive her to Paris and back!

Oliver: I have this fantasy that one day I will be the passenger and Humphrey or Stephen will instead drive me around the country for thousands of miles… but this is wishful thinking I fear.

What is your dream car?

Humphrey: At the moment I have it – Triumph spitfire 1500 from 1980. It makes an awesome noise – great stainless steel exhaust – and people love it. I would love an AC Cobra. What a car! I find a lot of modern cars lack any character.

Stephen: When I was 23 and made some money, I bought my dream car – a 1981 DeLorean gullwing, an icon of motoring. To this day it’s the car that makes me smile the most. A close second is the 70s Lotus Esprit – I adore the purity of its lines.

Oliver: I will – one day – get hold of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage, below – 1980s one obviously, none of this new rubbish. I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t need a reason for this?
3184152
How would you describe your driving style?

Humphrey: Confident but safe. Stopping distance is so important and I hate people who tail-gate – so dangerous. On a track I am aggressive, but really enjoy hitting the smooth racing lines. I hope to get my racing license soon.

Stephen: Day-to-day I actually ride a Honda sports bike as I get more of a thrill from two wheels than I do from four, plus I never get stuck in traffic. When I drive a car, I’m very cautious, especially with others inside. On the bike, it’s just me, so I have fun!

Oliver: London school of motoring. Meaning not scared to get about and use shortcuts. Actually my friends do all refer to the Ollie Baines school of motoring, but they don’t complain about getting from the West End to South West London in ten minutes.

Tell me one driving anecdote from your past?

Humphrey: We were recently invited to the Lotus test track where we drove the Exige S. An amazing car – perfectly balanced, stunningly quick and brilliant fun. I am a Norfolk boy so very proud of Lotus. The new Evora S is incredible. I borrowed one for a weekend and it really hurt when I had to give it back!
3092003
Stephen: Eight years ago I polished up my DeLorean, above, and set off for Monaco, purely to park up in the main square and enjoy a cold beer in the summer evening sun. The car made it all the way there, no problems. It got more photos than all of the Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porsches which line up in front of the casino. It was great to upstage cars costing 20 times its price.

Oliver: We were once on tour in Denmark with a terrible rental MPV and a suicidal sat-nav. It took us up this precipice in the snow whereupon the road became impassable and I was forced to reverse for a mile-and-a-half on ice with half a wheel over the edge of this 100ft drop below. I was so concerned that it might go over the brink that I made the boys get out of the car and walk behind me with all of the luggage. To top it all off we were becoming late for a flight – the last before Christmas Day naturally – and therefore weren’t all that keen on missing it. This stress plus the cold sweat caused by the danger of the road meant that when I finally found a space to turn the car around and rejoin a main road, I completely forgot to drive on the right. I realised my mistake almost immediately when we saw the lights of an articulated lorry approaching on our side. I turned the wheel calmly to the right, hoping the boys hadn’t noticed my mistake. Nothing happened. I turned harder, still nothing. With a jolt I realised our wheels were stuck like a tram in the 10ins deep ice tracks caused by one of these same vast trucks currently bearing down on us at 60 mph. With a huge effort I yanked the wheel hard over and we bounced out of the ruts into a power slide to the opposite carriageway just as this behemoth thundered by, horn blasting, but apparently unaccustomed to using brakes of any kind. We made our plane. Just.

What are you listening to?

Humphrey: It depends. In my Triumph then nothing apart from the awesome exhaust note. In the Volvo a whole mix. Classical music works on a long journey and we travel a lot so it helps keep you relaxed.

Stephen: I’m a big fan of La Roux, below and have been waiting patiently for her follow-up album for quite some time. The first single off that album is called “Let Me Down Gently” and has become my 2014 ultimate driving anthem, it’s practically on repeat!

Oliver: All sorts, but a lot of Radio 4 to be honest, and old podcasts of Alistair Cooke’s ‘Letter From America’ are a current favourite.
795632
What do you drive now?

Humphrey: My Triumph and also a boring Volvo V40 – not very exciting, but perfect for London as I don’t mind when it’s scratched and bumped. You must have off-street parking if you have a nice car otherwise they get bumped, scratched or stolen! My Triumph is tucked away and the Volvo is not!

Stephen: I’m currently riding/driving a 2014 Honda CBR-600-F, which is basically a mixture of a sports bike and a touring bike. With me on top it has a power-to-weight ratio that shames many supercars, so I’m generally first off the lights, with a big smile!
2577322
Oliver: I drive a 1970s MGB roadster, above, which I bought for peanuts when we first signed a record deal. I’ve restored it to its current state of beauty over seven years, and it is a total money pit! But I love every nut and bolt.

Blake article supporting collage
Going to a concert /show is more than just buying a ticket to see someone sing/perform. Your ‘ticket’ means you are supporting the arts, artist, musicians, crew, venue, employees and local communities which include local choirs. BLAKE gives local choirs the opportunity to perform on stage with them! These choirs are children, young adults, or mature adults who enjoy singing and who work very hard learning the art of singing. The choirs who perform with Blake need to learn several songs so they can sing ‘with the band’.
This means lots of rehearsals … and lots of fun singing with and meeting Blake!!!
Sadly, this article shows what lack of support can do; Theatres Trust lists 33 historic theatres ‘at risk’
By Ian Youngs
Arts reporter, BBC News
http://t.co/5X1BpETpnp
So…Please support your local theatres!
Please continue supporting Blake and your local choirs

We love Blake and are pleased that they’ve got a shiny new album for us to listen to. Blake always make us feel happy, in that Notting Hill meets Love Actually kind of way, there’s something warm and comforting about them and there’s something of a rom-com vibe about them. They give out the vibe that romantic, English gentlemen are ten a penny and they make your day all that bit more joyful. We had a glimpse of them performing some of the songs on this album live at the Mandarin Oriental last week and it made us look forward to hearing their latest album.

This is their first album release as a three piece band, following Jules Knight’s departure to pursue his acting career. We are pleased that this has not affected how they sound at all and their slick harmonies remain intact and slick, with their voices seeming to have matured even further. Perhaps they felt as if they had to work harder to make a three piece work, but whatever their magic formula is, they have sprinkled is all over the album, which is glossy and lovely.

There are a generous fourteen songs on the album, featuring some interesting cover choices and seeing several guest singers, which adds a lot of variety. Blake sound fantastic from the off, with You Needed Me showing their classically trained voices to perfection. Love Me Tender is an interesting choice, they give the song a romantic and slow ballad feel, we’re still picturing Humphrey singing this with a quivering lip, but we’re not sure they will add Elvis’ moves to their live performances! Wicked Game is genuinely passionate and they sound fantastic on the track, which is a perfect choice of song for them. They give Sting’s Fields of Gold their own spin, giving it a bit of polish and it’s one of those raise your lighters in the air moments and sway along, hug your loved one type of track.

Song after song, this album generates warmth and we love how different is it yet again to their previous album releases. The different female voices heard on the album give this album something new. You Raise Me Up features the angelic voice of Camilla Kerslake, along with the voices of The Sing to Beat Breast Cancer Choir and altogether, it’s a stunning song and their voices are all so powerful, they sound as if they are battling against each other for airspace, but each blending together so well, it’s a very powerful combination and we love it. Falling Slowly featuring Rachelle Ann Go is a strong love duet, sounding like something out of a Disney movie, if it were on screen, we could imagine the song covered in glitter, with the Princess dashing out to find her Prince Charming. The Prayer featuring Rebecca Newman has many twists and turns, starting out in English, before we heard their classically trained and operatic moments coming out to the fore. Rebecca’s voice hits so many beautiful notes that only certain soprano’s can carry off and again, this is stunning to listen to.

The Right Words has strong instrumental growth and Blake’s harmonies hit the strings at the precise moment required, showing their musicality and their strength as such accurate singers. Waiting is very deep in sound and sounds a bit like some of the songs from Blake’s earlier albums, it’s a very romantic sound. To add to their charm and distinct gentlemen style, they close off the album with Lullabye (Goodnight My Angel). This song has a lot of tender moments and it’s a bit of a weepy, as it’s quite emotional and hits you in the heart.

In Harmony is another sterling effort from Blake, classy, beautiful and hearing their talent plastered across another album in a world of auto-tune and certain people selling records with the help of controversy, or because of which celebrity they’re stepping or hanging out with, hearing this album is a joy to the ears! Now, where did we put the remote, time to switch on a rom-com and get cosy, or maybe we’ll just hit play on the album and sit here and listen to it all over again, feeling all that bit more happier inside.

★★★★

My Amazon review for #InHarmony
Blake’s fifth studio album is their first as a trio. Finding ‘The Right Words’ can be difficult sometimes when trying to say why you love something. However, I have been ‘Waiting’ and anticipating Blake’s new album “In Harmony” for …
what seems like ‘Forever’ !!! Which is my favorite song on album. ‘Forever’ starts off with a soft, smooth melody flowing gently….then the chorus comes in like a whirlwind! Their voices all singing as one … but are really layers upon layers of their beautiful voices dovetailing In Harmony.
You can hear and feel their heart, soul and passion in each song.
‘The Prayer’ with Rebecca Newman, ‘You Raise Me Up’ with Camilla Kerslake and ‘Falling Slowly’ with Rachelle Ann Go just adds another dimension to their singing talents.
This is an album, simply superb. I have not had it long, yet I will be listening to In Harmony ‘Forever’
I have bought several copies to “Share it Forward” and for singing gifts. There is a song for everyone on this album!

…The New BLAKE CD is out!
Order your copy of #InHarmony today…
Your fine taste in music and kind support for BLAKE mean a great deal to us!
We are delighted to announce the brand new BLAKE album ‘In Harmony’ has been released this week! Available from iTunes Amazon UK and in #HMV highstreet stores. The album has already made it into the Top 100 album chart this week, after a number of TV & radio appearances including last week’s The Alan Titchmarsh Show performance of ‘Fields of Gold’ (you can watch it by clicking here: http://youtu.be/zN9QxkioF3Y
If you would like to receive a copy of the album, or even a couple of CD’s for #Christmas presents, we recommend ordering on Amazon. Simply click the link below to order your copy:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00MNZ78XC
Having listened to what their fans enjoyed most about their previous 4 albums, the BLAKE boys created this 14 song collection over 2 years whilst touring the world as a trio. The repertoire collection is their most eclectic yet but draws directly on the classical, musical and popular harmony singing roots which they’re so known for. Alongside their voices are a mixture of full orchestra, string sections, world class guitarists, pianists and 3 guest duet partners, including Miss Saigon’s Rachelle Ann Go, Brit Award nominee Camilla Kerslake and Classical No.1 Rebecca Newman. The producer of this album was none other than Andrew Powell, the producer of Kate Bush’s iconic albums and more recently the bestselling #ILDIVO albums.
Thank you again for your support for BLAKE. The boys are an independent band on their own record label, without the help of a major record corporation or a #SimonCowell, so every CD purchased and every live concert ticket obtained, makes a massive difference to their continued career as artists. They really value your support and really hope you enjoy this album.
If you would like to see the boys live in concert, in London, before the end of the year, they will be giving their big finale concert at Union Chapel in Islington, on November 22nd at 7:30pm. Tickets are available via this link – http://store.unionchapel.org.uk/events/22-nov-14-blake-in-harmony-union-chapel/
It’s going to be a big night! Hope to see lots of you there!
With warm thanks,
The BLAKE team…

*****************************************************

Blake has recorded “The Prayer” with Rebecca Newman…. to be released on her new CD “Dare To Dream” very soon 🙂  Live orchestra with original songs and some lovely arias 🙂

Hoping for a March/April release!!! There will be a hard CD, a Special Edition double disc version with a DVD and will be available on iTunes.

In 2013, Rebecca has sung with Aled Jones, Russell Watson, recorded with Blake and Mary-Jess (for collborations on the album), performed the national anthems live on TV for three Rugby League World Cup Matches and achieved an internet hit with her Christmas single, which received over 100,000 hits.

Just to let you know, there will be different versions of this album available: Standard CD album, Special Edition double-disc album with a special DVD, iTunes standard, iTunes special edition. Plus other download sites too. Full info available nearer the time. I’m aiming for 1,000 pre-orders before the release week, at which point there will be more marketing with TV, radio, press etc, but the pre-orders will be what creates the base from which to work  x

Thanks for voting – did you know I’m releasing an album with FULL ORCHESTRA soon??

Posted on January 02, 2014 5 Comments

Hi everyone

Thanks for voting for me and getting me started on this journey.. Did you have a listen? 🙂

In case you’re not familiar with me, I’m a soprano from the UK with a new album out soon called Dare to Dream, featuring the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the world renowned Paul Bateman. It feautres some well known covers (operatic arias, musiclas, folk, film etc) and also some brand new, original music, some of which is written by me!

Things are very exciting at the moment and I’m looking forward to releasing the album in the spring, which will be my first chart eligible release (specifically, it also qualifies for the official classical charts). I have sold over 15,000 albums so far, not bad for an indie, and in the process raised over £11,000 for charity.

If you’re interested, please find out more about me at:

I hope you and your friends will enjoy listening to my music and would like to be part of my exciting journey.

Lots of love and happy new year!

OPM classics soar in Blake’s significant new album

By 

533x533xBlake2.

It was such a treat to see Ryzza Mae Dizon work her way out of what she described as “nosebleed” moments when the Brit Award-winning vocal trio, Blake, graced the precocious tyke’s GMA 7 morning show six days before Christmas—a visit that marked the UK crossover-pop group’s fifth trip to the Philippines.

The dashing threesome made up of tenors Ollie Baines and Humphrey Berney and baritone Stephen Bowman didn’t just get instant Tagalog tutorials from Ryzza, they also sang Alon’s videoke staple, “Pusong Bato,” with her! (Former member Jules Knight, who made show biz headlines when he “went out” with KC Concepcion two years ago, has since left the group to pursue an acting career via the medical drama series, “Holby City.”)

Blake’s recent visit was particularly eventful, because they were here to promote their latest recording, “The OPM Album,” a six-track collection that is significant because, like David Archuleta’s hefty “Forevermore” compilation, it isn’t everyday that we hear foreign acts covering Pinoy tunes—it’s almost always the other way around!

If Archuleta chose to do away with vocal acrobatics in his spare but pristine remake of Louie Ocampo’s “You Are My Song,” first popularized by the show-stopping versions of Martin Nievera and Regine Velasquez, Blake retools the well-loved ballad with opulent harmonies, gracefully complimented by the flawless vocals of “Miss Saigon”-bound Rachelle Ann Go.

Zippy revival

500x280xann-go-600x337.jpg.pagespeed.ic.Y07rddsZCu

The hard work of learning Tagalog lyrics phonetically is evident in the zippy Hotdog revival, “Manila” (they studied Filipino in London for two months), while Ogie Alcasid’s “Kailangan Kita” (with Filipina West End star, Joanna Ampil) showcases the complementary strengths of their powerful voices—from Berney’s operatic tremolando to Baines’ pop-like trills and Bowman’s low, masculine timber. But, there are distracting, awkward stresses in “Sa Isip Ko.”

As expected, Blake oozes with confidence in English-language tracks, like Ric Segreto’s “Don’t Know What To Do (Don’t Know What To Say)” and Basil Valdez’s gorgeously rendered “Say That You Love Me,” which is more dramatic and voice-appropriate for Stephen’s sumptuous baritone!

What do the boys find appealing about recording Filipino tunes? Humphrey explains, “Singing the love songs of a very romantic nation is wonderful! The lyrics are deeply emotional, which we naturally connect with as performers.”

The OPM recording couldn’t have come at a better time: “Everytime we visit the Philippines, we continue to be touched by everyone’s warmth and kindness,” shares Baines. “We dedicate this album to those affected by the super typhoon, praying that our songs bring them some happiness and hope!”

Vocal trio Blake return to the region with their Live In Concert tour for 2014.

The singers’ harmonies and rat pack banter has earned them a fan base around the world and they will be bringing their sound to South Shields on March 30.

As well as classic songs from their three previous chart-topping and award-winning albums, Blake are looking forward to performing songs from their latest album Start Over.

In November Blake announced their partnership with UK charity Walking With The Wounded, starting with the launch of a charity single. The song, To The Sun, has been adopted by Walking With The Wounded as its official anthem.

“To be working with Walking With The Wounded and have our song as their official anthem is a great honour” says Humphrey Berney.

“To be able to help raise awareness and funds through our music and involvement with Walking With The Wounded is very special and rewarding.

Blake’s most recent album Start Over, is a collection of contemporary harmony pop featuring original songs and a few covers, including Paul McCartney’s Beautiful Night and Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love.

Having formed in 2007, recording and performing as a classical group, Start Over is Blake’s first pop album and sees them embracing the new challenge.

Blake play Customs House, South Shields, on March 30. For tickets, Tel. 454 1234.

      Vocal trio Blake prepare to hit Llanelli’s Ffwrnes as part of Live In Concert tour
      By Llanelli Star  |  Posted: January 15, 2014VOCAL trio Blake are preparing to hit Llanelli’s Ffwrnes theatre as they return with their Live In Concert tour for 2014.
      Blake will provide an evening of music and entertainment and promise to deliver stunning harmonies and rat-pack banter, which have been entertaining audiences around the world.
      Speaking to the Star, group member Stephen Bowman said: “We had a big tour there last year and had a little bit of time off over the last two of three months.
      “We travelled overseas in Asia, America and Russia and it’s nice now we are back in the UK.
      Classic
      “It will be the first time we have performed in Llanelli, we have been to Wales before and have had the chance to perform at great venues like St David’s Hall in Cardiff but for no particular reason we have not been back in Wales for a while.
      “We will be staying the night in Llanelli. After the show we will be going out for a few drinks and it will be nice to meet the people who have come to see us for sure.”
      As well as performing classic songs from their three previous chart-topping and award-winning albums, they are looking forward to performing songs from their latest album Start Over.
      It is a collection of contemporary harmony pop featuring original songs and a few carefully selected covers, including Paul McCartney’s Beautiful Night and Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love.
      Having formed in 2007, recording and performing as a classical group, Start Over is Blake’s first pop album and sees them embracing the challenge.
      Inspired by vocalists such as the Bee Gees, Boyz II Men and The Beach Boys, their live set list has expanded to include more and more contemporary material.
      The group discovered that the strength of their vocal arrangements and four part harmonies allowed them to interpret a widening range of songs.
      The reaction from audiences has reinforced their belief that they were creating something special.
      “As I understand the venue (Ffwrnes) is nearly sold out — probably because we have not been in Wales for a while,” Stephen added.
      “The support is overwhelming and we are looking forward to coming and entertaining everyone.”
      The trio perform at Ffwrnes on Saturday, February 1 at 7.30pm.Read more: http://www.llanellistar.co.uk/Vocal-trio-Blake-prepare-hit-Llanelli-s-Ffwrnes/story-20443779-detail/story.html#ixzz2qWdRSrmThanks Victoria <3*************************************bandicam 2014-01-14 14-53-29-273

      Hywel Girls’ Choir & Hywel Boy Singers

      REVIEW: “CONQUERED BY SONG AND HARMONY” BLAKE IN CONCERT
      Special Guests: Hywel Girls’ Choir & Hywel Boy Singers
      Y Ffwrnes
      Saturday 1st February
      There was high expectation for the night arranged by Theatrau Sir Gar and Loud Applause Productions. International singing phenomenon Blake were coming to Wales and joining forces with special guests the acclaimed young Welsh voices of the Hywel Girls’ Choir & Hywel Boy Singers. The powerful line up set the bar high.The sell-out audience were not to be disappointed, only those on lengthy ticket waiting lists.Blake captivated the audience from first song to last, bathing the audience with a repertoire of popular and easy listening. Arrangements of solo, unison and layered blended voices gave a much loved life and sensitivity to a warm repertoire of classic and popular songs. The audiences clearly adored every note and harmony.Moon River, She, Nella Fantasia, Hallelujah, She was Beautiful, Time to Say Goodbye – Blake’s renditions captured the hearts of the audience. Between songs, the audience enjoyed the ‘Blake banter’ – light humour both on stage and with the audience – developing a warm rapport between all.In perfect musical companionship, the young stars of the Hywel Girls’ Choir & Hywel Boy Singers brought a new dimension to the night under the direction of John Hywel Williams. Despite their young age, the Hywel singers hypnotised the audience with their stage professionalism and discipline with songs from Les Miserables and a dance-sharp fun rendition of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.An unequivocal highlight – the joint performance of Nessum Dorma by Blake and the young choristers. This was Nessun Dorma like no other. The vocal skills of Blake, blending with the youthful passion of the Hywel singers, brought new and exciting life to this much loved song. Tears came to eyes. Audiences jumped to their feet. Regrettably, the audience’s passionate cries for repeats went unheeded but the experience was magical. One day may it be heard again!With the evening bubbling over with harmony, love and humour, the musical journey ended with a rousing Jerusalem by Blake and the choir with further standing ovations.Simply said, this was a great night of great artists and great music. They came. They sang. They conquered hearts.

      BLAKE Return in Live in Concert Tour

      Blake February (275 x 270)

      Vocal trio BLAKE return with their ‘Live In Concert’ tour for 2014. Touring the length and breadth of the UK BLAKE will provide an evening of great music and entertainment from these singers whose stunning harmonies and rat-pack banter have been entertaining audiences around the world. As well as classic songs from their three previous chart-topping and award-winning albums BLAKE are looking forward to performing songs from their latest album ‘Start Over’.

      In November BLAKE announced their partnership with UK based charity Walking With The Wounded starting with the launch of a charity single. The song, ‘To The Sun’, which was written by songwriter Alistair Griffin, has been adopted by Walking With The Wounded as its official anthem with 50 pence from the sale of each single donated to the charity. BLAKE debuted ‘To The Sun’ in Trafalgar Square at the South Pole Allied Challenge send off in front of Prince Harry and the expedition team members.

      Blake Walking with the Wounded (275 x 275)

      BLAKE’s association with Walking With The Wounded will include a range of activities through 2014 including participation in some of the charity’s challenges as well as promotion and fundraising throughout BLAKE’s UK tour dates and performances at Walking With The Wounded events.

      “To be working with Walking With The Wounded and have our song as their official anthem is a great honour” says Humphrey Berney. “To be able to help raise awareness and funds through our music and involvement with Walking With The Wounded is very special and rewarding.

      BLAKE’s most recent album ‘Start Over’, is a beautiful collection of contemporary harmony pop featuring stunning original songs and a few carefully selected covers, including Paul McCartney’s ‘Beautiful Night’ and Bob Dylan’s ‘Make You Feel My Love’. Having formed in 2007, recording and performing as a classical group, ‘Start Over’ is BLAKE’s first pop album and sees them embracing the challenge. The change in musical direction is in fact a natural progression forBLAKE.

      Inspired by great vocalists such as the Bee Gees, Boyz II Men and The Beach Boys, and having toured almost continually since 2009’s ‘Together’ (their third album), BLAKE’s live set list has expanded to include more and more contemporary material. The group discovered that the strength of their vocal arrangements and four part harmonies allowed them to interpret a widening range of songs and the reaction from their audiences reinforced their belief they were creating something special.

      BLAKE’s worldwide status continues to grow as the band take their music to important new territories and return to the Philippines where they are hugely popular. Their third album ‘Together’ topped the charts in the country last year and the group are putting the finishing touches on a new album specifically for the Philippines including a number of tracks sung in Tagalog, one of the Philippines’ predominant languages. In the UK the Filipino fan base is just as strong as proven when the band took to the stage at Barrio Fiesta 2013 to a crowd of 60,000 Filipinos.

      AwesomeTweetReview !!!
      Charlotte ‏@vanityfairestx
      Have you seen my most recent post featuring @TheBandBlake ??http://vanityfairest-x.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/the-band-blake.html
      The other evening the company I work for (hence the beauty therapist uniforms) sponsored an event at the local theatre, it was to see a band called Blake. I had heard of them a few times before but never their music, why I hadn’t before is beyond me. They are incredible! They are a mix of eclectic classical & pop songs with rich harmony vocals, they sing a complete range of songs from Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars to Giacomo Puccini – Nessun Dorma. The whole time I was sitting there in complete awe, they gave me goosebumps! (You know that it’s the real deal when this happens) I would even go as far as saying that their singing is the best thing to ever pass through my little ears – they really were breath-taking! They have a wonderful presence surrounding them. Blake are not only attractive, astounding singers, with a great sense of humour but they spend a huge amount of their time supporting several charities – Help For Heroes, The British Legion & MIND to name a few. It’s always that much more enjoyable when you know it’s going towards a charity that’s close to your heart isn’t it? The only thing that I wasn’t very impressed with, was that they didn’t serenade me! ;)Now I rarely get excited over singers/bands (except Beyonce of course) & it does take something pretty special for me to rave about it – I’ve just done a blog post on these lovely chaps so that’s saying something huh? If you think classical music isn’t ‘your thing’ just have a listen as Blake will probably change your opinion, very much like mine & I’m now a huge fan!Please go & check these out as they really are spectacular

      Challenges can be fun :)A few weeks ago we challenged Humphrey to learn how to play a Ukulele (essentially a tiny baby guitar for little people). Humphrey has giant hands, so frankly I’m astounded by this video he just sent me! Great job mate!
      When we were last in Hawaii giving a concert, Humphrey thought it would be fun to buy a Ukulele (essentially a cute baby guitar). He recently told us he’d learnt to play it; we wanted proof! So, here he is, in his gym kit, giving us a little rendition of ‘All of Me’, like it?
      Yep, I LIKE it 🙂Thanks Humphrey Blake!
      Gonna need more …
      and I have more 🙂 Tiny Bubbles

      London Concert to Benefit Philippines Typhoon to Feature Julie Atherton, Joanna Riding, Hannah Waddingham, Michael Xavier and More
      By Mark Shenton
      17 Dec 2013
      A one-night charity gala concert will be held March 2, 2014, at the West End’s Queen’s Theatre to benefit the Philippines Typhoon Appeal, with all proceeds going directly to the Disasters Emergency Committee, which brings together 14 of the U.K.’s leading aid charities to raise money to reach those in need quickly.
      Presented under the umbrella title You’ll Never Walk Alone – The West End Unites for the Philippines, the evening will feature Julie Atherton, Joanna Riding, Michael Xavier and Hugh Maynard, as well as Filipino-born singer Joseph Apostol, a quarter finalist on the BBC’s “The Voice” who is soon to play John in the West End return of Miss Saigon, and Filipino-born classical pianist Emmanuel Vass. The concert will also feature an ensemble of Filipino performers and an onstage band.The event has been instigated by the U.K.-based theatre Filipino community, many of whom moved to the United Kingdom in the 1990’s to take part in the original production of Miss Saigon, produced by Cameron Mackintosh.In a press statement, Mackintosh commented, “The Philippines have been a special part of my life ever since Claude-Michel Schönberg, Alain Boublil and I first went there 25 years ago to cast the original production of Miss Saigon. As well as being an exceptionally talented nation, the people we have met are also warm, generous and good-hearted human beings who have become our friends the world over. The recent terrible natural disaster there has affected so many people and along with the international aid, I am only too happy to offer the use of the Queen’s Theatre for a fund raising performance led by stars of the Philippines and the West End to help gather as much money as possible for those in desperate need.”The event is is produced by Paul Spicer and Matt Firth for Stage Acts Productions with the support of Delfont Mackintosh Theatres. Spicer commented, “In such dire situations we often feel helpless, but through entertainment and celebration of the Filipino people’s resilience, we can make a difference. This will be a truly one-off event rooted in hope and inspired by the Filipino spirit and vivacity. Disasters like this may often seem a million miles away from our reality, but when a crisis occurs it affects humanity as a whole. By lending our efforts to this appeal, we are expressing loyalty not only to the people of the Philippines, but to humankind.”To book tickets, contact the box office on 0844 482 5164, or visitwww.westendunites.com for more details.

      Blake and Cortes in South Africa June 2014

      The Brit Award winning and nominated, BLAKE joined by popular opera star CORTES-four of the most gifted male vocalists in the world, will come together to bring to South Africa, four concerts combining the very best of Opera, classical, musicals and pop harmony. Some of the best loved classical cross over music ever written, masterfully arranged and expertly performed, to create a magical evening. Mixing pop, rock and classical anthems with rich harmony vocals, British ‘boy band’ BLAKE launched their first album in 2007. The public embraced their debut album immediately, with over 100,000 copies being sold in just three weeks and earning the group their first Gold Disc. The music industry followed in early 2008, when the album received the prestigious Brit-Award for Album of the Year, a huge honour for a group still less than a year old.

      blake-cortes-landscape-update

      Since that time their music has achieved remarkable success. Their upbeat version of ‘Swing Low’ was chosen as the Official Anthem of England Rugby for the 2007 Rugby World Cup. In 2008 their highly anticipated 2nd album, And So It Goes was released and went straight in at number 12 in the UK pop charts and Number 1 in several classical charts around the world.

      Joining BLAKE on their debut South African Tour, is the ‘James Bond’ of classical music, CORTES an Icelandic tenor that was born into a musical family and trained as a singer in Vienna, Copenhagen and London. He has performed various leading tenor roles in operas, as well as a leading part in The Phantom of the Opera in London’s West End. His debut album in the UK, titled Cortes, was released on 16 April 2007 and entered the UK classical chart at number 1.

      • For Johannesburg, BLAKE and CORTES will be accompanied by the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra .
      • For the Cape Town shows, the Distinguished Stellenbosch Camerata Orchestra will accompany BLAKE and CORTES for this stellar line up of the finest of classic crossover singers in the world.
