British classical pop quartet Blake, which sold over a million albums worldwide, has conquered the hearts of Filipinos with their successful promo tour for their Together album, under Universal Records. This is their first album released in the country.
Blake, composed of four talented, good looking singers Stephen Bowman, Jules Knight, Humphrey Burney, and Ollie Baines, will also serenaded thousands of Filipinas in their shows and TV guestings, which includes appearances in Showtume, ASAP Rocks, Paparazzi, among others.
Jules was reportedly smitten by actress KC Concepcion’s beauty. The two were
reportedly seen hanging out a number of times. Jules even asked KC for a “date” on National TV when they met in ASAP.
Jules pleads, “We really hope you can grab a copy of our first album to be released in the Philippines Together. It has our versions of some of the most romantic songs.”
Together boasts of having an interesting mix of traditional songs and more modern pop tracks, carefully chosen to further highlight the immense talent of the group.
It includes U2’s With or Without You, Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water, Elvis Costello’s She, among others.
