Blake - The Story So Far Renowned for performing classical and pop songs in stunning harmony vocal arrangements, BLAKE comprises three young men who enthral fans the world over with their amazing singing, hit albums and charismatic stage presence. With over a million albums sold, No. 1 hits in ten countries and nearly 150 TV appearances around the globe, BLAKE continue to build their reputation as one of today’s most eclectic and exciting classical ‘crossover’ groups. Their friendship and musical careers date back to their school days, but just six months after reuniting as adults via social networking site Facebook, BLAKE were ready to launch their debut album in 2007. It was a phenomenal success going straight to No. 1 in the UK Classical Album Chart and taking the pop charts by storm. With over 100,000 copies of the album selling in just three weeks, the group earned their first Gold Disc. Recognised by the music industry for their talent, the album received the prestigious Classical Brit Award for Album of the Year in 2008 - a huge honour for a group that was still less than a year old. Their second album, And So It Goes, captured the hearts of a devoted and fast-growing fan-base of all ages. It went straight in at No. 12 in the UK pop charts and No.1 in several classical charts around the world. During 2008 and 2009 the group undertook triumphant tours of Australia and Japan, bringing their unique brand of music to an expanding global audience. 2009 continued to be a whirlwind year for the boys with a big UK tour, the creation of their new record label, Blake Records, and the release of their third album, Together, which enjoyed huge chart success. They finished the year with a 30-night sell-out tour in Scandinavia. 2010 proved to be another exciting year for Blake. Their original track, ‘Beautiful Earth’, was selected by the World Wildlife Fund as its Earth Hour Anthem, and their album Together continued its chart success, reaching No. 1 in the Australian Classical Charts and No. 1 in the South African Classical Charts during the FIFA World Cup. . After being invited to Buckingham Palace twice during 2010, Blake released ‘All of Me’ in 2011 – written by acclaimed songwriter Simon May (Eastender’s Theme) – to help the country celebrate the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton. With over 90 live concert appearances in 2011, this was their busiest year yet. They made highly successful début tours to the Philippines and Russia and appeared at the famous Henley Festival. Another high-profile performance that year was for Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco.Christmas 2015 saw Blake's biggest hit and highest profile with appearances on Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Day Show, The Graham Norton Show, The One Show, BBC Breakfast and many more....to launch their Christmas single with the one and only Dame Shirley Bassey. Summer 2016 saw Blake headlining no less than five Proms throughout the UK culminating in the sellout at The Henley Festival with Dame Shirley Bassey – a massive highlight for the group. With tours in UK, US and China 2016 was their busiest year yet. They were also the only group to be asked to appear on the Dame Shirley Bassey special tributed hosted by David Walliams which was broadcast on BBC on Christmas Eve. With 2017 just beginning and tours already booked for Taiwan, China and Northern Europe Blake will continue to tour throughout the U.K, and will be joined by a host of talented choirs local to the venues. In March this year they have the honour of being asked to perform at the magnificent event in London to celebrate the 100th birthday of Dame Vera Lynn. “ We genuinely feel privileged and honoured to have got to know her so well, making it all the more special to be singing for her once again in her 100th year. She's more than a national treasure, she's one of Britain's all-time greats!” 2017 is also Blake’s 10th year together as a group and there will be plenty to of celebrations along with a new album which is going to be their biggest project yet.
