Album of the Year at the Classical Brits 2008.

Blake are four incredibly talented young men who are bringing a fresh, innovative sound to bridge the gap between classical and pop music.

Despite the gift of their classically trained voices, the group stumbled upon the unique sound of their harmonies when they began to sing impromptu at a house party. They had already met up via the social networking site Facebook, but had never sung together before; their powerful performance stunned guests. Even the quartet realized that, together, their voices have a rare and distinctly compelling sound.

The foursome rehearsed together just once after the party before they decided to waste no time in approaching top manager Daniel Glatman, again finding him via Facebook. Daniel, manager of Blue and the Fron Male Voice Choir, saw their potential and secured them a record deal with Universal Music.

Within months of meeting and forming, the group have already recorded their first, self-titled album, cleverly using striking harmonies around completely re-arranged classical, opera and pop tunes to take popular songs, old and new, to another level. Their name comes from a mutual appreciation of the great poet William Blake, whose peerless thirst for innovation is much admired amongst the group. 2007 was the 250th anniversary of the poet's birth.

The boys' debut album 'Blake' immediately went to Number 1 in the UK Classical Album Chart and Top 20 in the UK pop album chart. The polished fusion of classical music and pop, incorporating beautiful versions of the Beach Boys' 'God Only Knows', the Gladiator theme music and other classical songs; all recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra proved a hit with the British public. Within 3 weeks the album attained 'Gold' status in the UK, and won Album of the Year at the Classical Brits 2008.
