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?
Humphrey Berney: A Mini Mayfair, above, which I kitted out to look like a Cooper, plus adding a new head. I loved that car – a legal go-kart. Cheap to run, full of character, racing seats, wheel and gear stick. Brilliant! RIP Monty.
Stephen Bowman: My first car was a white Vauxhall estate, with a diesel engine and over 185,000 miles. It cost my dad about £300 and the agreement was that once it died I could have a pretty car. The old girl refused to give in – in the end I drove it into a wall.
Oliver Baines: The first car I drove regularly was a hand-me-down Mitsubishi Shogun called Big Sid. It was nearly 18 when it came to me, so we were equals in that respect, but the poor old boy didn’t last long, and after wheezing and puffing his way along for a few more years, the head gasket finally blew outside my school gates – too much derision! He was retired on permanent loan to some friends in Scotland for farm work. I believe they paid us £50. A great way to learn about the pitfalls of old cars though!
How many times did it take to pass your test?
Humphrey: Twice. Outrageous! I failed on not entering a yellow hatched box when turning right. Second time, I had a great Scottish examiner. Monty the Mini was waiting when I finished and I drove straight to school. The girls were impressed!
Stephen: Aged 17, nothing in the world mattered more to me than passing my test, which is probably why it took me three attempts to reduce the nerves enough not to muck it up. My poor BSM instructor was pretty glad to see the back of me!
Oliver: I learned to drive at university with a man called Geoffrey who swore almost constantly. My lessons were thus highly amusing and extremely informative – alas I never recorded one of his rants. When I took my test, the examiner failed me for overtaking a lorry on the dual carriageway after the mile marker for my exit. This caused the most almighty argument between him and my instructor in the back seat, who – with multiple expletives – pointed out, that this was perfectly normal driving practice and something else about arses and elbows. Needless to say, this didn’t help.
Who would be your ideal fantasy passenger and where would you go?
Humphrey: Jenson button. I would get him to take me straight to McLaren so we could take lots of cars out on the track and get some tips. I love driving on the track. I’ve done quite a lot on motorbikes as well. Brilliant! If Jenson was not available then Stirling Moss – a true legend.
Stephen: For the perfect car journey I’d want the company of a gorgeous lady with plenty of stories to tell, so it would have to be Joanna Lumley, above. Loved her ever since watching reruns of The Avengers when I was a kid. I’d drive her to Paris and back!
Oliver: I have this fantasy that one day I will be the passenger and Humphrey or Stephen will instead drive me around the country for thousands of miles… but this is wishful thinking I fear.
What is your dream car?
Humphrey: At the moment I have it – Triumph spitfire 1500 from 1980. It makes an awesome noise – great stainless steel exhaust – and people love it. I would love an AC Cobra. What a car! I find a lot of modern cars lack any character.
Stephen: When I was 23 and made some money, I bought my dream car – a 1981 DeLorean gullwing, an icon of motoring. To this day it’s the car that makes me smile the most. A close second is the 70s Lotus Esprit – I adore the purity of its lines.
Oliver: I will – one day – get hold of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage, below – 1980s one obviously, none of this new rubbish. I’m pretty sure I shouldn’t need a reason for this?
How would you describe your driving style?
Humphrey: Confident but safe. Stopping distance is so important and I hate people who tail-gate – so dangerous. On a track I am aggressive, but really enjoy hitting the smooth racing lines. I hope to get my racing license soon.
Stephen: Day-to-day I actually ride a Honda sports bike as I get more of a thrill from two wheels than I do from four, plus I never get stuck in traffic. When I drive a car, I’m very cautious, especially with others inside. On the bike, it’s just me, so I have fun!
Oliver: London school of motoring. Meaning not scared to get about and use shortcuts. Actually my friends do all refer to the Ollie Baines school of motoring, but they don’t complain about getting from the West End to South West London in ten minutes.
Tell me one driving anecdote from your past?
Humphrey: We were recently invited to the Lotus test track where we drove the Exige S. An amazing car – perfectly balanced, stunningly quick and brilliant fun. I am a Norfolk boy so very proud of Lotus. The new Evora S is incredible. I borrowed one for a weekend and it really hurt when I had to give it back!
Stephen: Eight years ago I polished up my DeLorean, above, and set off for Monaco, purely to park up in the main square and enjoy a cold beer in the summer evening sun. The car made it all the way there, no problems. It got more photos than all of the Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porsches which line up in front of the casino. It was great to upstage cars costing 20 times its price.
Oliver: We were once on tour in Denmark with a terrible rental MPV and a suicidal sat-nav. It took us up this precipice in the snow whereupon the road became impassable and I was forced to reverse for a mile-and-a-half on ice with half a wheel over the edge of this 100ft drop below. I was so concerned that it might go over the brink that I made the boys get out of the car and walk behind me with all of the luggage. To top it all off we were becoming late for a flight – the last before Christmas Day naturally – and therefore weren’t all that keen on missing it. This stress plus the cold sweat caused by the danger of the road meant that when I finally found a space to turn the car around and rejoin a main road, I completely forgot to drive on the right. I realised my mistake almost immediately when we saw the lights of an articulated lorry approaching on our side. I turned the wheel calmly to the right, hoping the boys hadn’t noticed my mistake. Nothing happened. I turned harder, still nothing. With a jolt I realised our wheels were stuck like a tram in the 10ins deep ice tracks caused by one of these same vast trucks currently bearing down on us at 60 mph. With a huge effort I yanked the wheel hard over and we bounced out of the ruts into a power slide to the opposite carriageway just as this behemoth thundered by, horn blasting, but apparently unaccustomed to using brakes of any kind. We made our plane. Just.
What are you listening to?
Humphrey: It depends. In my Triumph then nothing apart from the awesome exhaust note. In the Volvo a whole mix. Classical music works on a long journey and we travel a lot so it helps keep you relaxed.
Stephen: I’m a big fan of La Roux, below and have been waiting patiently for her follow-up album for quite some time. The first single off that album is called “Let Me Down Gently” and has become my 2014 ultimate driving anthem, it’s practically on repeat!
Oliver: All sorts, but a lot of Radio 4 to be honest, and old podcasts of Alistair Cooke’s ‘Letter From America’ are a current favourite.
What do you drive now?
Humphrey: My Triumph and also a boring Volvo V40 – not very exciting, but perfect for London as I don’t mind when it’s scratched and bumped. You must have off-street parking if you have a nice car otherwise they get bumped, scratched or stolen! My Triumph is tucked away and the Volvo is not!
Stephen: I’m currently riding/driving a 2014 Honda CBR-600-F, which is basically a mixture of a sports bike and a touring bike. With me on top it has a power-to-weight ratio that shames many supercars, so I’m generally first off the lights, with a big smile!
Oliver: I drive a 1970s MGB roadster, above, which I bought for peanuts when we first signed a record deal. I’ve restored it to its current state of beauty over seven years, and it is a total money pit! But I love every nut and bolt.

Going to a concert /show is more than just buying a ticket to see someone sing/perform. Your ‘ticket’ means you are supporting the arts, artist, musicians, crew, venue, employees and local communities which include local choirs. BLAKE gives local choirs the opportunity to perform on stage with them! These choirs are children, young adults, or mature adults who enjoy singing and who work very hard learning the art of singing. The choirs who perform with Blake need to learn several songs so they can sing ‘with the band’.
This means lots of rehearsals … and lots of fun singing with and meeting Blake!!!
Sadly, this article shows what lack of support can do; Theatres Trust lists 33 historic theatres ‘at risk’

Arts reporter, BBC News
So…Please support your local theatres!

Blake – In Harmony album review

We love Blake and are pleased that they’ve got a shiny new album for us to listen to. Blake always make us feel happy, in that Notting Hill meets Love Actually kind of way, there’s something warm and comforting about them and there’s something of a rom-com vibe about them. They give out the vibe that romantic, English gentlemen are ten a penny and they make your day all that bit more joyful. We had a glimpse of them performing some of the songs on this album live at the Mandarin Oriental last week and it made us look forward to hearing their latest album.
This is their first album release as a three piece band, following Jules Knight’s departure to pursue his acting career. We are pleased that this has not affected how they sound at all and their slick harmonies remain intact and slick, with their voices seeming to have matured even further. Perhaps they felt as if they had to work harder to make a three piece work, but whatever their magic formula is, they have sprinkled is all over the album, which is glossy and lovely.
There are a generous fourteen songs on the album, featuring some interesting cover choices and seeing several guest singers, which adds a lot of variety. Blake sound fantastic from the off, with You Needed Me showing their classically trained voices to perfection. Love Me Tender is an interesting choice, they give the song a romantic and slow ballad feel, we’re still picturing Humphrey singing this with a quivering lip, but we’re not sure they will add Elvis’ moves to their live performances! Wicked Game is genuinely passionate and they sound fantastic on the track, which is a perfect choice of song for them. They give Sting’s Fields of Gold their own spin, giving it a bit of polish and it’s one of those raise your lighters in the air moments and sway along, hug your loved one type of track.
Song after song, this album generates warmth and we love how different is it yet again to their previous album releases. The different female voices heard on the album give this album something new. You Raise Me Up features the angelic voice of Camilla Kerslake, along with the voices of The Sing to Beat Breast Cancer Choir and altogether, it’s a stunning song and their voices are all so powerful, they sound as if they are battling against each other for airspace, but each blending together so well, it’s a very powerful combination and we love it. Falling Slowly featuring Rachelle Ann Go is a strong love duet, sounding like something out of a Disney movie, if it were on screen, we could imagine the song covered in glitter, with the Princess dashing out to find her Prince Charming. The Prayer featuring Rebecca Newman has many twists and turns, starting out in English, before we heard their classically trained and operatic moments coming out to the fore. Rebecca’s voice hits so many beautiful notes that only certain soprano’s can carry off and again, this is stunning to listen to.
The Right Words has strong instrumental growth and Blake’s harmonies hit the strings at the precise moment required, showing their musicality and their strength as such accurate singers. Waiting is very deep in sound and sounds a bit like some of the songs from Blake’s earlier albums, it’s a very romantic sound. To add to their charm and distinct gentlemen style, they close off the album with Lullabye (Goodnight My Angel). This song has a lot of tender moments and it’s a bit of a weepy, as it’s quite emotional and hits you in the heart.
In Harmony is another sterling effort from Blake, classy, beautiful and hearing their talent plastered across another album in a world of auto-tune and certain people selling records with the help of controversy, or because of which celebrity they’re stepping or hanging out with, hearing this album is a joy to the ears! Now, where did we put the remote, time to switch on a rom-com and get cosy, or maybe we’ll just hit play on the album and sit here and listen to it all over again, feeling all that bit more happier inside.

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

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!!!

First day in Seoul, Korea and we attended an official ceremony making BLAKE ambassadors for the Korean charity KAT which helps thousands of disabled people into fully paid work in agriculture. We sang the Korean national anthem acapella in 3 part harmony which went down well!
