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

What was your first car?
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.
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?
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!
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.
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!
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’

Arts reporter, BBC News
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!

♥You and your music fill our hearts♥♥
…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:
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:
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 –
It’s going to be a big night! Hope to see lots of you there!
With warm thanks,
The BLAKE team…

I can not wait to see YOU, #Blake there!!!

SB the DJI just melt every time I hear this song, Black Cherry by Goldfrapp. I got into them around 2003 when I saw them live in London. For those of you that don’t know of this fabulous duo, take a trip around Youtube with them, so many beautiful songs. Their latest single ‘Drew’ is out now, not so electronica, but equally stunning. SB
In a musical marathon mood tonight, just stumbled upon this brilliant three way assault on the nostalgia bone by Queen, Annie Lennox and David Bowie, singing Under Pressure to the biggest crowd I’ve ever seen at Wembley! Wish I had been there that night, goosebumps!
I’ve always had a soft spot for Annie Lennox as a musician, classically trained, highly intelligent and very involving. It could easily be argued that this is one of her squidgier songs, but I’m still a fan. Something tells me I’m indulging a little too much in an early 90’s nostalgia fest tonight, but it feels good, so I’m going with it 🙂

British group Blake sings ‘Manila’ to over 60,000 Filipinos in London

Can you imagine the Hotdogs classic “Manila” sung by gorgeous European men with thick British accent?

Blimey, it’s absolutely fantastic!

The music trio Blake sang the ode to the Philippine capital at the gathering of some 65,000 Filipinos working and living in London recently.

While most local singers in the Philippines do cover songs of foreign acts, the English pop-classical quartet is doing the opposite.

“Blake found it a great challenge to sing in Tagalog, but the reaction from the 65,000 Filipinos at Barrio Fiesta and now on the internet too, was certainly worth it,” Blake’s website stated.


True enough their performance has been making the rounds on social media, with Filipinos in and outside the country raving to hear familiar words from non-Filipino singers. Its Facebook video, for instance, has since been shared 44,000 times and liked by 30,000 more.“Loved it! Well sung! Shared it to my Filipino family and friends living overseas. There are over 8 million Filipino overseas Overseas Workers. Am sure hearing the song brought them momentarily back home,” user Rachel Sergeant commented.Lovin’ the PhilippinesComposed of Oliver Baines, Humphrey Berney and Stephen Bowman, Blake is a group of former schoolmates who formed the group a couple of months after finding one another on Facebook.The reunion gave birth to their self-titled debut album released in 2007. They’ve had three albums since: And So It Goes (2008), Together (2009) and Together: Special Edition (2010).Meanwhile, it seems the group is really charmed by the Philippines as they’ve been to the country twice last year—first in March (2012) and second in November (2012) for a series of performances for a local mall.
Blake~~~So Happy
June 9th
From the album ‘Start Over’

“ A trio of unsurpassed musical brilliance” – Sir Terry Wogan

‘So Happy’ is the second single to be taken from Blake’s new album ‘Start Over’. Mixed by Ash Howes, who has previously worked with One Direction, The Saturdays, and Texas, ‘So Happy’ is an upbeat summer tune about the positives of a break up and how it can be for the best for both parties involved. With the lively horns (recorded in New York with Michael Bublé’s brass section) and driving percussion line, ‘So Happy’ sees Blake embracing the challenge of evolving from classical music to pop with the single representing the sound of their fourth album.

Known for their stunning harmonies, ‘So Happy’ once again displays Blake’s – Stephen Bowman, Humphrey Berney, Ollie Baines and former band member Jules Knight – vocal ability. Earlier this year founding member Jules departed the group to return to his acting roots, he can be seen on screens from May in Holby City, and ‘So Happy’ is one of the last tracks to feature Blake as a quartet with the album title now being even more fitting than before.

Ollie, Humphrey and Stephen have entered an exciting new era in 2013 touring and performing as a trio with their ‘Live In Concert’ tour. With shows across the whole of the UK throughout the year audiences can expect an evening of great music and entertainment from Blake whose harmonies and rat-pack banter have been entertaining audiences around the world.

“The year so far has been incredible for Blake with the release of ‘Start Over’ and making the transition from classical to pop. The fans worldwide have embraced our new sound and it’s been fantastic. We’re really excited for what lies ahead for the rest of 2013 and can’t wait to continue introducing our new music as a trio to our fans both in Britain and overseas.”

Since forming in 2007, recording and performing as a classical group, the BRIT Award winners have performed over 600 shows in the UK and abroad including performances at the Royal Albert Hall, Wembley and Twickenham. The change in musical direction for ‘Start Over’ is a natural progression for Blake. 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.

Blake were recently invited in to Radio 2 to do a session for Terry Wogan’s ‘Weekend Wogan Show’ where they performed two songs from ‘Start Over’. The group also performed at the Soldiering On Awards and for Sir Ian McKellan at an event at the Ivy Club in aid of the Albert Kennedy trust.

As well as touring in the UK, the band’s status worldwide continues to grow. In 2012 the band took their music to China for the first time as well as returning to the Phillipines for tours in April and December and to America for various high profile shows. Spring 2013 saw the band make their debut in Indonesia with two shows in Jakarta.

Maraming beses na kitang nilayasan 
Iniwanan at ibang pinuntahan 
Parang babaeng mahirap talagang malimutan 
Ikaw lamang ang aking laging binabalikan
Manila, Manila, I keep coming back to Manila 
Ain’t no place like Manila 
Manila I’m coming home
I walked the streets of San Francisco 
I’ve tried the ride in Disney Land 
Dated a million girls in Sydney 
Somehow I feel like I don’t belong
Hinahanap-hanap kita, Manila 
Ang ingay mong kay sarap sa tenga 
Mga jeepney mong nagliliparan 
Mga babae mong naggagandahan Take me back in your arms Manila And promise me you’ll never let go 
Promise me you’ll never let go 
Manila, Manila, I keep coming back to Manila 
Simply no place like Manila 
Manila I’m coming home (Repeat Chorus)Manila, Manila, miss you like hell Manila 
No place in the world like Manila

Review of gorgeous, rousing new single by @thebandblake (penned by @AlistairGriffin for @supporthewalk)  #ToTheSun

Blake *To The Sun*

It’s that time of year when the nights get a little darker, the shop windows get a little brighter, the Starbucks cup get a little redder and it feels like the charts should have a big ol’ booming inspirational ballad tickling at the top ten. This year that could well come in the form of the stunning new Blake song, To The Sun (to raise funds and awareness for charity Walking With The Wounded). Penned by the talented singer songwriter Alistair Griffin (whose Bring It On & Albion Sky albums remain a triumph in their own special ways), it’s an uplifting piano based ballad that is enriched by a military-esque drum beat & a clever production that allows the song to ebb & flow, be hushed & crescendo at just the right moments for maximum emotional impact. Rousing lyrics beautifully reflect the ethos of the very charity they are raising money for – overcoming adversity to achieve one’s goals, bought vividly into focus by the resonant, emotive individual and collective harmonised voices of the three Blake chaps themselves. There is no doubt that these guys are three of the finest vocal harmonisers the UK has right now & the expressive nature of their voices always finds the quiet nuance of the lyrics that sometimes gets lost in lesser hands. While the verses definitely have a sense of stately grace about them, it’s the unforgettable chorus that sends this song soaring, leaving you with a feeling of dignified hope & community that will hopefully last you well into the New Year… (Released on Nov 14th)

Walking With The Wounded was founded in 2010 to address the problems faced by many wounded service personnel when trying to enter the civilian workplace. The number of men and women who have left the Armed Forces with physical and mental injuries is tragically high and these injuries often have a direct impact on their ability to obtain and sustain employment. Walking With The Wounded raises money to fund programmes and courses which equip those leaving the Armed Forces with qualifications and skills required to find long-term employment.


🙂 Blake♥ Always a pleasure to meet Prince Harry, such a charming and down to earth guy. He wished us well with our new song ‘To The Sun’ for his Walking With The Wounded charity and thanked us for all the support we had given. Just happy to do our bit! 🙂

Stephen ♥ Chatting and laughing with Prince Harry last week, just before singing our new song ‘To The Sun’ in Trafalgar Square. Very friendly guy, likeable and down to earth. Right about now he’ll be standing on the edge of the Antarctic, contemplating his 200 mile walk to the South Pole. Good luck sir!

My article on @TheBandBlake written for @fairsharemusic: Singing In Harmony…

Blake ♥♥♥

Harmony group, Blake, formed in 2007 and their self-titled debut album entered the UK Classical Album Chart at number one. It was also a Top 20 hit in the pop charts. Their music reached an even wider audience when their version of ‘Swing Low‘ was selected as the official anthem for the 2007 Rugby World Cup. In 2008, Blake were presented with a BRIT Award for Album of the Year. Since then, three more albums have been released –And So It Goes (2008), Together (2009) and Start Over (2013). The first three albums are a divine blend of classical and pop songs whilst Start Over is more of a pop tinged album. However, whether Blake sing original material or covers of classic tunes, everything is performed in their own inimitable style with glorious, soaring harmonies – the ultimate feel-good music!

Blake on London Tonight

There have been a couple of band line up changes but Blake are currently a trio consisting of Ollie Baines, Humphrey Berney and Stephen Bowman. Blake do as much as they can to support a variety of charities. They’ve performed twice for the Queen at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the Festival of Remembrance. Their thought-provoking song ‘Beautiful Earth’ was chosen by WWF to be the Earth Hour Anthem in 2010. To support this campaign, the band turned off London’s lights from Trafalgar Square. Last month a gorgeous version of ‘You Raise Me Up‘ was released in aid of charity – a collaboration with soprano Camilla Kerslake and the inspirational Sing to Beat Breast Cancer Choir. Stephen, Ollie and Humphrey also recently released another charity single entitled ‘To the Sun‘ and 50p from every copy sold will be donated to Walking With the Wounded (on top of the 50% profit fairsharemusic already donate, of course!)

Blake-Beautiful Earth

In October, I had the pleasure of seeing Blake live in concert at King’s Lynn Corn Exchange. The venue was packed with people of all ages and we were treated to a wonderful selection of songs, interspersed with a plethora of funny stories. Particular highlights for me included performances of ‘She’, ‘Chasing Cars’, ‘With or Without You’ and ‘Moon River’. The band’s rendition of ‘Bring Him Home’ moved me to tears and several people stood up and applauded loudly after ‘Nessun Dorma’. Camilla Kerslake ably supported Blake and a local school choir even appeared on stage. In my opinion, it was the best concert I’ve ever been to! If you haven’t yet experienced Blake’s music, do yourself a favour and download some of it!

Rehearsals this afternoon ahead of our shows in Manila, got to polish up our Tagalog! Then afterwards, the Blake Xmas dinner at



The huge Cunard ship, Queen Victoria, on which we'll be singing tomorrow for Prince Charles's charity 'The Prince's Trust'
On 29 November over 100 guests, including celebrities like classical pop trio Blake, who performed on the day, celebrated the milestone on board Queen Victoria.

Cunard Line has raised £1 million for The Prince’s Trust in less than six years.

On 29 November over 100 guests, including celebrities like classical pop trio Blake, who performed on the day, celebrated the milestone on board Queen Victoria.

HRH The Princes of Wales, President of The Prince’s Trust, congratulated the cruise line at the celebrations with a video message.

The Prince’s Trust ambassadors attending the event (pictured above) included actor Robert Powell and his wife, former Pan’s People dancer Babs Powell, BBC journalist Jon Sopel, singer Joan Armatrading, young ambassador Nathaniel Hawley, Master of Queen Victoria Captain Inger, Klein Thorhauge, Martina Milburn CEO of The Prince’s Trust and David Dingle CEO of Cunard Line.

Angus Struthers, Cunard’s Marketing Director, said:

“For the last six years, we have been delighted to have worked with The Prince’s Trust and raising our first £1 million to support the outstanding work of The Prince’s Trust is something that everyone at Cunard can be rightly proud of.

“We look forward to continuing our work with the charity for many years to come.”

Fundraising activities on Cunard’s three ships have included the auctioning of the nautical map at the end of each voyage and generous guest donations.

Cunard cruises have also been auctioned at high-profile Prince’s Trust events and there have been dedicated Prince’s Trust voyages.

The annual “Week for the Trust” saw a big fundraising drive in the cruise line’s Southampton offices and there have been sponsored “Palace to Palace” bike rides.

The Prince’s Trust gives young people practical and financial support, developing key workplace skills, confidence and motivation, working specifically with 14 to 30 year olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law.

Martina Milburn, chief executive of The Prince’s Trust, said:

“With youth unemployment still affecting hundreds of thousands of young people in the UK, it has never been more important to support those who are furthest from finding work.

“I would like to thank Cunard for their commitment and enthusiasm which has helped us to get many young lives back on track.”

Cunard and Carnival UK have also supported The Prince’s Trust with work placements and HR support.

Last December four departments at the Cunard offices gave young people aged 16-23 the chance to develop hands-on skills in a customer service environment as part of the Trust’s ‘Get into … Customer Service’ work experience project.

HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, accompanied by HRH The Prince of Wales, named Queen Victoria in December 2007, marking the ship’s association with The Prince’s Trust.

A little reminiscing prior to guys returning to the Philippines this Thursday🙂
A Super date with Blake
By Angela V. Ignacio
Philippine Daily Inquirer
Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Is it hot in here, or is it just them?
Sitting a mere centimeters away from British pop-opera harmony group Blake, one can’t help but think that even the most hard-bitten female journalist would have a really hard time staying immune to male charm. Especially when she becomes the lone subject of this handsome thirtysomething quartet’s attention for a good fifteen minutes.
Having captured Pinoy hearts during their Ayala Malls tour last October, Blake came back to serenade Manila as part of their Philippine promotional tour for their third album “Together.” They performed at the Greenbelt 5 Gallery on March 22 and at the Trinoma Mall Activity Center on March 23.
Remarkable beginnings
Ollie Baines. 
In 2007, bass-baritone Stephen Bowman, baritone Jules Knight, and tenor Ollie Baines contacted each other via Facebook, and the group’s name was born out of mutual deep admiration for poet-visionary William Blake. After a worldwide web search, tenor Humphrey Berney was chosen to replace member Dominic Tighe when the latter left the band to pursue acting.
Shortly after its inception, the band nabbed a major record deal and released its charttopping eponymous debut album, which earned the boys their first BRIT Award for “Album of the Year” — their greatest achievement to date, according to Bowman. Their succeeding two albums, 2008’s “And So It Goes” and 2009’s “Together,” have also enjoyed immense success.
The lads are no strangers to grand-scale audiences, having performed at a number of historic sporting events such as the 2007 Rugby World Cup (for which their version of the African-American spiritual song “Swing Low” had been the official anthem). They’ll be adding one more decoration on their mantle right after their Manila trip: “We’re just about to sing at the Olympics in the UK. We think that’s going to be our moment of glory; we’re the first musical group ever to perform on the Olympic Stadium,” Baines told Super recently in an exclusive one-on-one (or one-on-four) interview at the Mandarin Oriental’s Fontaine Room. According to the band’s official website, Blake will share the stage with Amy Winehouse’s protégé/goddaughter, rising soul star Dionne Bromfield, for the charity event.
Harmony group
Stephen Bowman. 
Blake might remind one of other classical pop quartets, but the band begs to differ. “I think we may have started off reasonably similar to a group like Il Divo, maybe halfway between Il Divo and G4 (“The X-Factor” season 1 runner-up group who’d disbanded). But after five years, I think now we realize that we’re actually very different from those groups,” explained Bowman. “We’re a harmony group; regardless of what type of material we sing, and even to a certain extent, what kind of voices we use, it’s always about the harmony. I think a group like Il Divo is much more about operatic voices applied to pop music, whereas for us, it’s harmony voices, whatever the kind of music.”
Boasting of rich, classically trained vocals laced with sweet pop sensibilities, Blake’s repertoire offers a unique crossover experience for music fans, regardless of genre preferences. The musical charisma is even more evident when heard live. “Our live shows are more than just music. We’re trying to always talk to our audience a lot, we try to be funny as much as we can, and we try to give them as many styles of music as they can cope with. We find that people have very wide tastes and they love that,” said Berney.
Its novel spin on standards like Henry Mancini’s “Moon River” and popular ditties by Snow Patrol, Boyz II Men and Elvis Costello has earned the band a strong, steady following all over the world. “Together” contains a beautiful selection of covers and originals; noteworthy tracks include the wedding song “All Of Me” and a rendition of U2’s “With Or Without You,” whose recently released video had been made as a gesture of gratitude for their Filipino fans’ support.
Royal wedding song
Contrary to popular belief, “All Of Me” wasn’t written for the wedding of Prince William and Duchess Catherine, who had been classmates with Knight and Baines back at university; rather, it was released to commemorate the royal couple’s union. “It was written about a couple of years before,” Bowman clarified. “The songwriter (notable British composer Simon May) intended it to be [for] his daughter’s wedding, but… I don’t think she’s married yet, so it got an early outing for the royal wedding.”
Jules Knight.
A fourth album is currently in the works. Berney gave a teaser: “It’s a different album from ‘Together,’ which we wrote with the American market in mind. It’s all original; we’ve worked with Michael Buble’s band [and] Diane Warren. It’s very much an evolution. This is our first original offering, so I think it’s very exciting.”
“We’ve released the first song from the album in the US, which has been very popular. So hopefully you guys will get to hear that later this year,” added Bowman. In the future, the band also hopes to do collaborations with local artists such as Lea Salonga, of whom the guys are huge fans.
The boys have quite a busy schedule to juggle during their twelve-day stay in Manila. In between press and media promotions for their music, they’ll be doing photo shoots for Bench as its newest endorsers as well as for Philippine Tatler (the editor of which is Inquirer’s Anton San Diego, who also happens to be Blake’s manager). “We’re even happier to be back here after six months than you guys are to see us back, I think,” said Bowman with a smile. “Nowhere have we ever been in the world before where we’ve felt so at home, reaching this place. More than anything else, we’re looked after by every single person we meet; everybody’s friendly and warm and caring. It’s very special.”
Mates, dates and some Pinoy lovin’
Blake’s members started out as choristers with illustrious academic backgrounds in classical music, but each had his own career prior to joining the group. “I used to run my own marketing company in the UK, Humphrey was singing in opera, Ollie was also training in opera but he was an English teacher as well, and Jules was an actor,” Bowman shared.
Humphrey Berney. 
Knight revealed an interesting second profession: “We’re also in a professional polo team. The first [singing polo team] in the world,” he chuckled. Yes, they’re serious. “We’ve started training, and we have our first competitive match this July the 14th in England,” said Berney. “We’ve actually checked out the polo club here, so maybe the next time we come back, we can be invited to play some polo. That’d we great for us.”
Other trivia: Bowman is into sports and motorbiking, Baines loves to read, Berney is trained in martial arts (“He can kill a man with the back of his ear,” Bowman quipped), and Knight is a bit of a ladies’ man. They’re also all active on Twitter and Facebook. But above all, they’re very family-oriented; in fact, for all you unattached ladies out there, the band makes a declaration: they’re single and ready to mingle.
“We had a conversation about it today; we have been around the world, and I think Filipino women are definitely amongst the most beautiful,” commented Knight, who is currently linked to local sweetheart KC Concepcion. “We’re at the place where we might be looking for a wife,” Berney mused. “And I’m hoping for a nice Filipina wife. If anybody’s looking for a nice Englishman for a husband, I’m here,” added Bowman with a rakish grin.
Lip service? Maybe. But, heck, it worked anyway. Better look up the Tagalog word “kilig,” boys, because after today, you’re going to hear—and see—a lot of it from smitten Filipinas everywhere.
“Blake Live in Manila 2012” is sponsored by Ayala Malls, Universal Records and Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

BRIT-Award winners Blake have recorded their first ‘Asia-only’ album, including two duets with stars from the Philippines. The album, available on iTunes now, features 3 tracks sung by Blake in the Filipino language of Tagalog, establishing a world first for a British group….

The album is available to download from iTunes right here:

Blake will be spending two weeks in Manila this December, performing their new Tagalog songs live in concerts in and around the capital, plus a special trip to Cagayan de Oro, mixed in with appearances on the biggest tv shows in the Philippines. This marks their fifth trip to the Philippines in just three years, showing quite how much the trio love the country and enjoy performing there. The album is out December 14th.

The boys gave their personal thanks to those that helped them with the album, along with a little insight into what it was like to record the songs in a new language.

Humphrey: Recording some of the most loved songs in the Philippines, in Tagalog, has been both a great experience and challenge for Blake. Singing romantic songs in a language from a very romantic nation is a wonderful combination. We hope our versions and performances have done them justice. It certainly makes me feel closer to the Filipino culture and people that we’ve come to know so well over the last three years. The lyrics are all deeply emotional which we naturally connect with as performers. We look forward to singing these live in the Philippines and seeing you very soon. Salamat.

Stephen: It’s hard to believe that only 3 years ago we boys were contemplating our first ever trip to the Philippines. By the kind invitation of the Ayala group and the Zobel famly, organised by our enduring manager Anton, we were shown the beauty, the kindness and the musical richness of the Philippines. We have have been in love with Filipino culture ever since. Whether performing concerts in Manila, or singing for 70,000 Filipinos at Barrio Fiesta in London, we always feel the pride of the Pinoys in their fine culture. It’s our honour to be a small part of this with this album. Where ever we are in the world, the Philippines is always close to our hearts. Salamat.

Ollie: Every time we return to the Philippines, we continue to be touched by the warmth and kindness everyone shows us. As three singers, we spend our lives travelling the world, singing love songs, hoping they touch people. The passion for love songs in the Philippines is legendary, which is why we felt it was time for Blake to attempt our first OPM album, showing our respect for songs which have delighted generations of Filipinos around the world. As we recorded these songs, the terrible news of Typhoon Haiyan reached us, saddening us greatly. We dedicate this album to all those affected, praying that it may bring a little happiness and hope. Blake will always be there for the Philippines. Salamat.

Stephen 🙂 It stays super sunny in Manila till lunch time, then often clouds over from the humidity; no better time to grab a quick half hour of tanning than straight after breakfast! Gorgeous rooftop pool at our hotel, not bad!  Leaving for our first spundcheck in a bit, two BIG concerts today! Phew!

If one song could sum up that feeling of being blessed in what I do for a living, this would be it, I really am a very lucky boy; took a while to get here, with the help of everyone I know, not taking a moment of it for granted now. Ever grateful 🙂 This song pretty much sums up my mood today! 🙂

BLAKE shares their feelings!!!
It was an honour to sing the OPM classic “Kailangan Kita” on ANC Showbiz TV this morning, we hope our Tagalog is understandable? We adore this love song so much, totally timeless and very romantic! Feel free to ‘like’ and ‘share’ 🙂

British group Blake sings ‘Kailangan Kita’

MANILA — Known for their classical-meets-pop style, the award-winning British group Blake is back in Manila for a unique cultural exchange.

On their fifth visit in the country, they are not just performing for music-loving Filipinos as the group has also released an album paying tribute to some of the most-loved OPM songs.

Included in the album is the Gary Valenciano original “Kailangan Kita,” which the group performed on “Mornings@ANC” on Monday.

blake dec 17thGuys are in Cagayan de Oro Tuesday evening 🙂
British vocal group “Blake” will hold an evening of music at Centrio Mall on December 17, 6 PM.  They released their debut album in 2007 which won the Album of the Year at the Classical Brit Awards in 2008. One of their songs “Swing Low” was chosen as the official anthem of the England Rugby Team for the 2007 Rugby World Cup. The current members of Blake are (from left to right in the featured photo) Humphrey Barney, Ollie Baines, and Stephen Bowman.

They are also promoting a Tagalog OPM album (yes, they’re singing in it), with hits familiar to every Filipino, and Kagay-anon for that matter, songs like Manila, You are my Song, Say that you love me, Kailangan Kita, Don’t know what to do, and Sa Isip Ko.

Blake performing Manila

They are slated to tour Manila and Cagayan de Oro:
Blake will be spending two weeks in Manila this December, performing their new Tagalog songs live in concerts in and around the capital, plus a special trip to Cagayan de Oro, mixed in with appearances on the biggest tv shows in the Philippines.

The Band Blake at Centrio Mall

Centrio Mall was transformed into a concert venue last Tuesday, December 17, as the Band Blake entertained Kagay-anons with their songs and stories. Blake is a British vocal group known for being the singers at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. They’re also popular among Filipinos because of their latest album – a collection of Tagalog songs.

The group’s Centrio Mall show was packed with people. They gamely entertained the crowd with their songs. They have a different, interesting way of singing popular songs. The classics sound haunting and beautiful with their rich, full voices. Their artistry showed in every song they performed.

Blake also regaled the crowd with their playful way of entertaining. They know how to capture the audience’s attention. So even if it was your first time to hear them, you’ll feel like you’ve been listening to their songs for years. They’re the kind of vocal group that grows on you – the right way, of course!

The group ended their show with a powerful performance of Luciano Pavarotti’s Nessun Dorma, an aria from the opera “Turandot”. One of the most popular arias of all time, Nessun Dorma’s English translation is “None Shall Sleep”.

In lieu of tickets, the show organizers asked Kagay-anons to donate anything useful. Others opted to buy the group’s CD.

The Band Blake is currently composed of Humphrey Berney (a tenor), Stephen Bowman (bass-baritone), and Ollie Baines (tenor). According to reports, the band was formed through Facebook. The group is named after William Blake, an English poet the group admires.
