Stephen Bowman performs “When I fall In Love”

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’.

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

You know how it is when you have waited and waited and waited for something … then one day you wake up and there it is. The finished project. #InHarmony. You can’t help but feel a twinge of trepidation …what if there is something I do not like? You have conjured up so many ideas, thoughts, hopes and???
You click the download link and wait. You click play … and then, as you listen to each new song, a sense of ‘calmness’ comes over you, filling you with Stephen, Humphrey and Ollie’s beautiful, exciting, pure ‘In Harmony’ voices
I love it ♥ Blake has made us the perfect album.
This is ♥BLAKE♥♥

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!

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

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…

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

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

@TheBandBlake #ThePrayer #DareToDream2014

Spent the day recording with @TheBandBlake & what a great bunch of guys they are! See you all again soon!

Getting to know Rebecca ♥

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:

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!”

“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.

      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.

      *Thought and admiration went into the writing of this incredibly heartfelt review ❤ Thanks for Sharing …*SK

      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.

      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

      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?

      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.

      INTERVIEW: Stephen Bowman

      of Blake

      By Echo_Bridget  |  Posted: April 11, 2014

      Echo interview photo
      A great INTERVIEW with Stephen Bowman “Lovely long interview I gave for the Express & Echo newspaper, revealing a little about the chemistry of Blake and why we sing what we sing. Enjoy”
      Thank you Express & Echo and Stephen:)

      With more than one million albums sold, harmony singers Blake have toured around the world, but among the places they

      haven’t yet performed is Exmouth Pavilion. Soon it will

      be another one they can tick off the list, and Stephen

      Bowman reveals to Anita Merritt the eclectic mix of songs they’ll be performing

      YOUR destiny can be obvious from birth simply because of the family you’re born into, but no one could have predicted the musical path Stephen Bowman would eventually choose.

      Raised by a German rock guitar playing father and a British opera singing mother, Stephen grew up surrounded by diverse styles of music.

      Instead of choosing a favourite, he has found fame worldwide for a unique ability to mix eclectic classical and pop songs with rich harmony vocals as part of group Blake.

      They released their first album in 2007, just six months after the line-up was completed on Facebook, and it went to number one in the UK classical album chart and was a top 20 in the pop chart. The album then received Album of the Year at the Brit’s in 2008, and the band was still less than a year old.

      This year the band will release its fifth UK album, and touring remains one of their biggest passions. Despite being able to pack out huge venues, Blake have chosen to include some smaller theatres and among them is Exmouth Pavilion where they will be heading on Saturday, April 26.

      “The Exmouth date is towards the end of the tour so by that point we will be very good!” assures Stephen during a brief break during the tour. “It will be our first time there although I know it well because as a kid I used to travel along the coast quite a lot with my parents and my two brothers and sister on holiday. This time though I won’t be wearing very short shorts and carrying a bucket and spade. I suppose I could but I would get more odd looks than usual!”

      Revealing what fans can look forward to hearing, Stephen says he wants to wow people with many different genres of music and how they link them all together.

      “The music is a mixture of everything from pop to rock and classical to musicals,” he explains. “It’s a brand new show and we have five albums to choose from which means it’s increasingly difficult to choose which ones to put in.

      “The songs are linked with very, very funny banter which people have started to hanker after more than the music. When we started touring years ago we realised we had girls in the audience who come along to listen to the love songs, and had their poor partners with them so we started to talk to the guys in the audience and give anecdotes about what we do and travelling around the world. Now it’s as big of a part of the show as the music itself so we hope when guys come along they don’t feel too tortured!

      “We sing what a lot of people regard as quite British music with a choral slant. It’s harmony music but inspired by the fact we come from a classical background.

      “We’re British and we’re proud of what we do and it always gets an amazing response wherever we go in the world.”

      The journey to success has not been entirely smooth running for Stephen who was initially picked out of a school assembly when he was 14 for singing too loudly. He was urged by the head of music to study classical voice and academic music.

      Later he was encouraged to audition for the London Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and against all the odds – including not being able to read music – he was one of just nine male singers to gain a place at the world famous college out of more than 4,500 applicants. He also took the record for the youngest male to ever get a place.

      After nearly a decade of trying to get into the music industry, with many knock backs, Stephen’s dream finally came true when he and fellow college friend Oliver Baines formed Blake. The quartet was completed by an appeal on Facebook and within 24 hours they had been signed by Universal.

      “We’ve all had different ways of getting to where we are vocally,” says Stephen. “Performing with bands was my way of getting into music. I sang pop and rock where as the other guys had more choral traditions. When we came together we mixed the styles together which are pulled together by our love of harmony. We put unusual types of music against each other. One minute we can be singing Nessun Dorma and then Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol. We must be the only group in the world who would juxtapose songs like that, but ultimately they are all linked by romance and love.

      “At first we were compared with likes of Il Divo which wasn’t a bad thing as they have done brilliantly, but we we’re not them. We’re not opera singers who sing pop. We are a British harmony group who enjoy that type of music.

      “You wouldn’t find Il Divo doing covers of U2. We had our own niche and when we became independent a more contemporary harmony sound came out.”

      The band has gone on to achieve many triumphs, including their upbeat version of Swing Low being chosen as the official anthem of England rugby for the 2007 Rugby World Cup; performing at Dame Shirley Bassey’s 70th birthday party; and performing for royalty.

      “You have to enjoy it while you can,” reflects Stephen. “The music industry is a really tough place and you can fall out of favour. The main thing is to have a lovely family around you and very good friends to keep you down to earth.

      “One of the biggest highlights from the last seven years was sitting in the audience at the Royal Albert Hall at the Classical Brit Awards in 2008. We were nominated for best album and won. My memory is very hazy, probably because we celebrated so much afterwards!

      “To then get nominated again in 2010 was awesome because we had started our own record label. We became the first independent group to be nominated for a Brit award, and again we couldn’t believe how lucky we were.”

      The line-up of Blake has changed since its formation, but today’s current members are now a solid unit who all want to enjoy a long future together.

      “We have struggled with ‘actors’ being in the group who wanted to go back to acting,” admits Stephen. “None of us in the group now have acting aspirations. I’m probably the worst actor in the world!

      “When you have a band change it’s an opportunity for change and to do something different.

      “We spend around 300 days together a year. It’s a lot but luckily we all equally have a very particular musical vision so we don’t fall out on a creative basis and we have a similar sense of humour. We are one of those very rare groups who get on most of the time.”

      Blake have the release of their fifth UK album to look forward to in September, offering a ‘back to their roots’ sound. “It’s Blake unplugged in a way because it’s taken away the orchestra and focuses on the voices,” says Stephen who also enjoys songwriting. “We are guys who don’t like sitting still or treading water. Blake has achieved a lot, but in real terms we’ve only achieved a quarter of what we hope to. We are seven years young.”

      For the time being the band’s focus remains its current tour.

      Stephen says: “I love performing and it’s when I feel the most relaxed. Off stage I’m the type of person who would never get up on the dance floor. I’m not in any way an extrovert, but when I go on stage I turn into my stage character which is very outgoing, jokey and silly.” I don’t take myself seriously or try to be cool or sexy. If I did I would slip up, like on a banana skin.”

      There’s also nothing cool about Stephen’s backstage antics before a concert. “The last thing I do before I go on stage is take a big swig of tea. I don’t do anything crazy.”

      Tickets for the concert, starting at 7.30pm, cost £22.50. Call 01395 222477 or visit ww.ledtickets.co.uk

      May be best singer win ;)New gig for BLAKE with ‘gig’ rowers
      09/04/2014
      Internationally acclaimed band BLAKE will be getting a taste of traditional Cornish life ahead of their show at Truro’s Hall for Cornwall on Sunday 27 April, when they join the Cornish Pilot Gig Association (CPGA) at Charlestown for a spot of rowing followed by refreshments at the recently refurbished Rashleigh Arms.
      The three-part vocal group will be competing against each other in three traditional Cornish pilot gigs, Defiance, Petroc and Vilt.
      The boys will then join some of the CPGA membership for a pint of Tribute and a pasty back at the Rashleigh Arms. This is where the Charlestown gigs are stored in the boat shed and where the club meets socially every week.
      Humphrey from BLAKE said: “Having a communal love of water sports and the sea and having seen some pictures of the Cornish pilot gigs we are really looking forward to getting out onto the water and having a go, let the race begin! After all the effort of the race, we’ll be looking forward to a pasty.”
      Cornish Pilot Gig Racing has evolved over a number of years from what was once a way of earning a living. Throughout the history of the pilot gig there have been heroic rescues with the gig acting as a lifeboat and jobs in pilotage, and now gig racing is a rapidly expanding sport, in the South West and further afield.
      The sport’s official body, the Cornish Pilot Gig Association, is sponsored by St Austell Brewery’s flagship Tribute Ale. The Tribute Series takes place every year, this year it will hopefully be taking place in June where all CPGA clubs are given the chance to compete against each other.
      Chairman of the Cornish Pilot Gig Association, Jason Nicholas said: “We are thrilled that the boys from BLAKE want to have a go at this exciting sport which is so closely linked with Cornwall’s history and heritage. Rowing is a fantastic fun and accessible sport which anyone can join in with, and on Saturday 10 May we will be holding ‘come and try’ days across the country for people to see what it’s like for themselves.”
      For more information about the ‘Come and Try’ days which are part of the Cornish Pilot Gig Association’s recruitment drive, please go to http://www.cpga.co.uk or contact your local club.BLAKE will be rowing with some of the CPGA membership in Charlestown at 10.30am on Sunday 27 April.Photo and filming opportunities will be available – please contact Tom Cowle at DCA Public Relations on 01208 77900 or email tom.cowle@dca-pr.co.uk for more informationhttp://t.co/bLaJSf98wq

      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      …maybe some gloves Stephen
      “Those of you who know me well, will know that I’m certainly no sportsman. So the idea of rowing like crazy out in the ocean fills me with trepidation. I’ve put in an order for bright orange arm bands, an emu inflatable ring & emergency flares. Preparation is key!”

      Classical pop crossover trio Blake try a new kind of gig
      By WMNjackieb | Posted: April 18, 2014
      Classical pop crossover harmony trio Blake will be flexing more than their vocal chords when they head for the Westcountry next weekend as part of their UK-wide tour – they will be testing their muscles in a rowing challenge.The Cornish Pilot Gig Association have invited Ollie Baines, Humphrey Berney and Stephen Bowman to race against one another at Charlestown before their Truro show, to help put the spotlight on their recruitment drive.“We usually find it quite relaxing to come and perform in your beautiful part of the world, but I’m not so sure it will be this time,” says Ollie.“I expect this was Humph’s idea. I’ve never seen a gig , but as far as I can tell they are old rowing skips that move with the speed of a small badger. I expect we’ll be pretty tired and have blistered fingers, but I’m looking forward to it,” adds the Oxford-born and Wiltshire-raised singer, whose father is a veteran of the famous Oxford-Cambridge boat race.“My dad rowed for Oxford in 1972 – he was very young, only 18 or 19 at the time, and they were still using wooden oars. When I was at university [Cambridge] I never saw the point of getting up at 6am when I could be in bed with a hangover,” he admits. “I found music instead.”The group burst onto the scene in 2007 with their eponymous first album, released six months after the former choristers had reunited via Facebook. It went straight to number one in the UK classical album chart, as well as the pop top 20, winning Album Of The Year at the 2008 Classical Brit Awards.Since then they have been touring virtually non-stop, winning fans all over the world. They are also well-known for their charity work, forming a partnership with British based Walking With The Wounded, which they launched with the single To The Sun.The Blake repertoire has been gradually veering more towards the pop genre. Inspired by artists like the Beach Boys and the Bee Gees, their most recent LP Start Over is a collection of contemporary original songs and a few unexpected covers, including Paul McCartney’s Beautiful Night and Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel My Love.“It is a natural progression, although our live shows are definitely still a mixture,” explains Ollie, who has been singing since he was eight as a chorister at New College, Oxford and Winchester Cathedral.“It might sound a bit like child labour having to sing 25 or 30 hours a week on top of your school work, but it’s such a beautiful thing to do. It gives you an incredible foundation in musicianship for older life,” he says.“It’s like learning a language; when you’re a child your brain is like a sponge soaking it all up. I was very, very lucky to do it.”The group were recently in Washington DC to fly the flag for British culture and win some new fans across the pond. And for Ollie it was a long overdue return trip.“I went with the Winchester Cathedral choir when I was ten or 11 years old in 1994, so it was wonderful to go back,” adds the multi-talented musician who also learned the French horn and the trumpet, played in several youth orchestras, and is still a keen pianist.“I dabbled with the flute and the clarinet too, and I’m learning the ukulele at the moment – it’s a lovely little instrument to carry around.”The trio were invited to the British embassy where they performed an a cappella acoustic set to a specially invited audience, then appear live on Fox News America.“We had a great time and hopefully made an impression that is more than a little drop in the ocean,” adds Ollie. Their TV appearance in front of millions of viewers nationwide featured an interview as well as a live performance.Well known for their Rat-Pack style on stage banter, they threw in their fair share of unique British charm.“We are a variety act and we like to have a very relaxed feel to our performances. We have certain routines to link some of the songs and there is a definite flow to things.“Ultimately we just want people to come away feeling they have had an enjoyable experience,” he concludes.Read more: http://www.westernmorningnews.co.uk/Classical-pop-crossover-trio-Blake-try-new-kind/story-20966971-detail/story.html#ixzz2zGBp25Hv

      St Albans & Harpenden Review:
      Blake are back on the road
      12:00am Saturday 12th April 2014
      By Rosy Moorhead

      Humphrey Berney, one third of hit vocal trio Blake, is taking a well-earned break from the touring, recording and promoting that makes up the boys’ days, and, for one night only is visiting his family.

      “I’m in Norfolk to visit my niece and nephew,“ explains Humphrey, known as ‘Barney’ to his group mates. “It really is important to take any opportunity to see family and friends. I haven’t been back for ages and it’s amazing how quickly they are growing up. Saying that, being woken at 6am by a small child shouting at you that he is Spider-Man isn’t that enjoyable when you have jetlag!“

      Back on the road, and Humphrey rejoins his other family – Stephen Bowman and Ollie Baines – who he has been with in Blake since the group formed in 2007. 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.

      “It was a shock when Jules left, as it was very sudden,“ Humphrey admits. “We had to adapt very quickly as we had live shows and so needed to rearrange songs and get used to being a three, but it has gone really well.

      “It’s amazing to think it’s over a year now. After being together for so long (six years) you become very close, almost like family, so it was sad to see him go. But we often see him – in London you end up going to lots of the same events and we have been out for dinner a few times to catch up and hear all the news.“

      Back in the UK after touring Asia, Russia and South Africa, Blake are on the road with a mix of some of their classic numbers with some of their newer songs, all combined with Rat Pack-style banter and stories from their world travels. And there are lots of stories to tell – performing three times for The Queen, playing the Centre Court at Wimbledon, and performing to half a billion people live on Chinese television.

      Humphrey admits that tensions do sometimes get a little frayed when they’re on the road – but no more than with any ‘family’.

      “We’re three individuals who spend a huge amount of time together, and we start to get tired, miss home, and little issues can seem much bigger than they are. However, it’s the sign of great friendship that after a little spat we very quickly make up.“

      He continues: “It’s great to be back out in the theatres. Our shows really take people on a musical and emotional journey, and it’s great to see the range of ages that come to our gigs. We often have three generations of one family in the audience. We have such a variety of music, it appeals to a very wide range – even the husbands!“

      BLAKE Live in Concert at the Radlett Centre, Aldenham Avenue, Radlett, on Friday, April 25 at 8pm. Details: 01923 859291, radlettcentre.co.uk

      Blake boys go out on the water before HfC gig

      By cmjohnw  |  Posted: April 28, 2014  Cornish Guardian

      blake charlestown

      The three members of the internationally acclaimed operatic boy band Blake enjoyed a taste of traditional Cornish life ahead of their show at Truro’s Hall for Cornwall this evening.

      This afternoon they joined the Cornish Pilot Gig Association (CPGA) at Charlestown for a spot of rowing followed by refreshments at the recently refurbished Rashleigh Arms.

      The three-part vocal group competed against each other in three traditional Cornish pilot gigs, Defiance, Petroc and Vilt.

      The boys then joined some of the CPGA membership for a pint of Tribute and a pasty back at the Rashleigh Arms. This is where the Charlestown gigs are stored in the boat shed and where the club meets socially every week.

      Community choir to join Brit winner Blake on stage in Bromley

      bandicam 2014-05-09 21-25-08-138

      A community choir have been chosen to perform alongside Brit Award-winning vocal group Blake in Bromley.

      Popchoir – who rehearse weekly in Chislehurst, Dulwich and Croydon – will join the trio on stage at The Churchill Theatre on Sunday, May 18.

      The members of Blake all found their love of music as youngsters in various groups and choirs, so they looked to share that passion with the communities they are visiting on their tour.

      Popchoir, who recently sang with heritage rock act Foreigner as well as at the Ideal Home Show, London Marathon and Olympic Park, will perform some of Blake’s well-known classic-pop songs with them and perform one tune from their own repertoire.

      Popchoir are best known for featuring the music video for Josh Groban’s I Believe last year.

      Founder and director Helen Hampton said: “We’re delighted that Blake has asked us to perform with them at their Bromley concert.

      “As our name would suggest, we are known for our repertoire of pop songs, and so this will give us an opportunity to show our versatility as we crossover into the more classical sound of Blake.

      “We’re also delighted to have the chance to sing at the Churchill Theatre which is a lovely venue and very familiar to all our members.”

      Friday 16th May saw the welcome return of classical pop group Blake to the Isle of Wight, hosted by Medina Theatre.
      1st
      Fresh from a recent visit to the States in March to sing outside the White House, the group are certainly used to performing in their fair share of famous venues.
      While Medina Theatre may not been on the same grand scale, it still manages to hold its own as a good little theatre that can stand up to the challenge of playing host to a variety of world-class performers.
      Blake tend to attract a more mature audience to their concerts, but Friday night saw younger members eagerly take their seats, indicating the trio’s increasing appeal to all ages. Their popularity has steadily increased since forming in 2007 – so far, Stephen, Ollie and Humphrey have had a number of hit albums and records in both the UK and classical charts.
      Supporting the group for the night were island-based choir Voices of the Isle of Wight, as well as classical superstar, Camilla Kerslake.
      Choir members Emily Scotcher and Tess Attrill were very pleased to be backing the group again:
      ”I’m currently taking my A-levels at present, so supporting Blake has given me a nice break from my exams. And it’s great practise for me as I’m going off to study Performing Arts in September” said Tess.
      ”They are such nice guys to sing with,” added Emily. “The island is a huge hub of creativity and this is a great opportunity to showcase its vocal talent.”
      Blake charmed the audience with remarkably passionate renditions of popular classics. With every new song, a fresh wave of emotion washed over the audience, taking them on a journey right to the very end of the concert.
      The event was made all the more special by having our very own talent perform on stage alongside Blake, showing their humble nature and passion to help and inspire emerging talent. Allowing young people to express themselves through singing should be encouraged, and this is exactly what Blake are doing.
      Their charm and passion is not restricted to the stage alone. Having used their musical talents and celebrity status, the boys have become advocates for charities the world over, with a particular focus on both cancer-based charities and charities for the Armed Forces.
      The importance of raising awareness and funds for these vital charities was not lost on the audience, who were noticeably moved by the confessions of the singers and their own personal experiences.
      “It was moment of immense strength in the face of cancer.”The song choices also added to this, with a particular emphasis on a spectacular performance of ‘You Raise Me Up’ and ‘Hallelujah’. Aided by the ‘Voices of the Isle Of Wight’, it was moment of immense strength in the face of cancer.
      It is no wonder these talented gentlemen have received worldwide acclaim and performed for the Queen herself no less than twice. There is no doubt that their talents will continue to captivate audiences and work towards making the world a better place.

      The band is now set to tour South Africa, joined by opera star Gardar Thor Cortes

      The James Bond Of Opera: Blake & Cortes To Perform Together Live In SA (plus exclusive interviews with the guys!)
      Hi sunshines,
      Gossip Guy here, with cool crooners coming to the country. “C” what I did there? A certain cellphone supplier – take note.
      But back to music and Brit Award-winning and nominated, Blake joined by popular opera star Cortes, are coming to South Africa for four concerts combining the very best of Opera, classical, musicals and pop harmony.
      We’re talking four of the hottest opera vocalists in the world, right here on our doorstep.
      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 the guys [And can we take a moment to appreciate how easy on the eyes they are! – Ed.]
      Performances are on the 20th and 21st June 2014 at 20:00 at the Cape Town Convention Centre.
      Performances in Johannesburg on the 27th and 28th June 2014 at 20:00 at Emperors Palace.
      Booking is open for all shows at Computicket. Tickets from R300.00.
      BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!!!Gossip Guy got to interview Cortes and one of the Blake boys. Check out these exclusive Q&As with the guys, covering fame and what fans can expect from their tour to SA.
      Enjoy!

      Humphrey Berney from Blake
      1st time in SA? Thoughts on the country?
      No, I have been to South Africa once before. I stayed in Cape Town for a couple of weeks and then drove the Garden Route with my brother. I loved it! The beauty of the landscape, the weather, food, wine and of course the people. I am really looking forward to coming back.What can fans expect from the show?
      I think it will be a great musical and quite emotional experience. Both Blake and Cortes will be singing a mixture of songs but many will be powerful, emotive tracks. In between the singing we love to have a bit of fun and a chat so hopefully you will come away having had a laugh as well as being musically inspired…What favourites will we hear?
      Many – if you are film lover, there’s tracks by the great Ennio Morricone, operatic tracks like Nessun Dorma and some lighter stuff like She by Charles Aznavor and some Beach Boys. There will be something to suit everybody’s tastes. We will of course be combining all our voices in some duets which will be exciting – Blake and Cortes is quite a combination.You’ve performed for many famous people – who stands out?
      Being a Brit, performing for the Queen is always a highlight and something we have been lucky enough to do on quite a few occasions. Singing at Buckingham Palace is one I will never forget.Who would you like to still perform with (dream collaboration)?
      Elton John. We saw him in concert not that long ago and he is still so great. I think it would be a great mix of voices and styles and we all love his music.Best tip for handling fame and being in the limelight?
      Do not take it too seriously. Enjoy the great bits – travelling, meeting new people, some good parties but remember the fame/attention bit is all nonsense. If you can’t manage to do that then go out with someone who does not work in the industry who has their feet on the ground so they can give you a kick once in a while. You just have to look at people who care about fame eg The Kardashians.. that is where fame and celebrity become embarrassing!
      Cortes
      1st time in SA?
      Yes, this is my first time in SA. I think it’s a beautiful country and very different from Iceland and therefore I’m very much looking forward to coming over.What can fans expect from the show?
      I think the fans can expect a great performance from Blake and I. The programme is interesting and exciting, and we’ll be singing quite a few songs together which we haven’t had the pleasure of doing before, so we are all very excited about that.What favourites will we hear?
      The programme is very mixed which we like, but there are some favorites that everyone knows – Nessus Dorma, Time To Say Goodbye, She, Hallelujah and Nella Fantasia to name but a few.You’ve performed for many famous people – who stands out?
      I’ve been lucky enough to perform for Her Majesty the Queen and other Royals and since I very much like the Royal family that stands out for me. There are other famous people that I’ve performed with and for but always, when I sing, I enjoy equally much the performance and hope that whoever listens feels the same way.Who would you still like to perform with (dream collaboration)?
      There are so many people I’d love to perform with. I’d love to work with Placido Domingo and Renée Fleming. We have so many great artists out there, and if and when, I get a chance to work with some of them, I know that something special will come out of it.Best tip for handling the fame and being in the limelight?
      I don’t look at myself as being famous. Regarding being in the limelight or rather having attention focused on you which is the case often, then I think it’s best to try and understand that we are all the same and we should treat everyone equally.XoXo

      GOOD AFTERNOON AND WELCOME!
      You may already be aware that classical Brit-Award winners BLAKE are due to launch their latest album (no.5) called ‘In Harmony’. You might not know however that the album is EXCLUSIVELY available on PledgeMusic.com for pre-order, along with some very unqiue and special experiences with the band. Fancy the chance to do something fun with BLAKE?
      http://www.PledgeMusic.com/TheBandBlake
      Along with signed copies of the new album, there are 18 other special ‘pledges’ that you can order for yourself or the ones you love. Each pledge that you order counts towards the target that the band have to reach to make this album. Once the 100% mark is reached, the boys will begin to start recording and you’ll be able to hear demo tracks and watch studio videos!
      Humphrey, Ollie and Stephen can’t make this album without your help. They promise you a harmony album, filled with 15 classical, pop and musical songs, mixed with lush vocals, warm strings, rich pianos and guitars. It’s going to be their best album yet, if you help them!
      It’s really easy to pledge and you won’t be charged a penny until the target is reached. Just 7 days since launch and we’ve reached 20% of target, let’s push hard together and we’ll reach that 100% in no time at all, maybe even 200%…? The more pledges we get, the better the album will be, the more it will be seen!
      If you enjoy the music of Blake and want to hear it on your CD player, on your radio and see it on tv (rather than X-factor, again..) please help us & pledge!
      With warm thanks from the Blake boys,
      BLAKE.

      Bake With Blake – The Great British ‘Blake Off’26 May 2014 // by: Music-News.com NewsdeskBake-With-Blake—The-Great-British-Blake-Off
      Baking is the new Rock ‘n’ Roll and who wouldn’t want to make cakes with three of the dishiest men in music?The male harmony vocal group BLAKE are back and are creating a special new album for their fans across the globe. Available exclusively on PledgeMusic, BLAKE’s latest offering will be presented alongside VIP experiences that give fans the opportunity to get up close and personal with the group.Besides the bundles of signed goodies that we’re used to from the BLAKE boys, they’ve stepped it up a notch with their innovative idea of Baking with BLAKE: The Great British BLAKE Off. There will be six people in each session comprising three teams of two with a member of BLAKE heading each team collectively instructed by a professional pastry chef to teach the all important cooking skills. The lessons will be held in a central London location on week days for only £160.00 per person.”Having the opportunity to offer something so unique like this to our fans, linked directly with making our 5th album, could only have been made possible with PledgeMusic; if people want to bake with us, they’ll need to head to our Pledge site. Who knows, perhaps we end up doing more baking than music this year, but that’s the risk we’re willing to make to ensure this is our best album yet!”The classes will be held courtesy of Bake With Maria. ‘I’ve been baking since I was a child, inspired by my mother who always used to bake our breads at home,’ says Maria. ‘I want to share my secrets and teach others the very special art that is home baking.’ http://www.bakewithmaria.comThe ball is already rolling and the pledges are pouring in as fans show their utmost desire to help BLAKE create a fantastic fifth album. Once their target is reached, PledgeMusic will release the funds and recording can begin.”For eight years our wonderful Blakettes having been baking us cakes, kindly left at the stage door of every concert venue we play, or given to us in person after the show. From the Philippines, to China, Russia, the USA and UK, there isn’t a show we do where fresh cakes don’t arrive before or after the concert. We don’t eat every single one, but we try enough that we all have gym memberships to keep the kilos off!”So roll up those sleeves and get your rolling pins ready..to Bake with BLAKE.#TheBandBlake

      BLAKE SQUARE Bromley Choir Article

      BLAKE GIVE THEIR SUPPORT TO DIAMOND SCHOOL OF PERFORMING ARTS

      May 26, 2014 • Music, News

      Diamond School of Performing Arts choir will join Brit Award winners Blake when they perform at The Stables this August.

      The acclaimed vocal group have been hunting for local choirs to join them on stage as part of their Live in Concert UK tour, and Diamond School – whose members range from eight to 21 years – are more than happy with their appointment.

      “Our students are thrilled to once again be singing with Blake at The Stables theatre,” said Lucy Mann, who leads the Newport Pagnell collective.

      “The venue holds a special place in our hearts having sung there over several years welcoming guests including international musicians and entertainers to John Dankworth and Dame Cleo Laine’s Christmas shows.

      “To be singing there again with Blake is such a privilege – one we are all looking forward to so very much,” she said.

      Blake’s Humphrey Berney has organised the campaign since it launched – so far they have been joined by more than 300 local choirs at shows.

      “We three all owe our careers, our success and the opportunity to travel the world, to the choirs that first let us sing with them as young children and teenagers,” he said.

      “Singing with a group helps build confidence and without a doubt leads on to some people stepping forward to take on solo singing careers.”

      Blake and Diamond School of Performing Arts choir will be be at The Stables on August 28 and 29.
