CLASSICAL pop quartet Blake are heading out on tour again in support of their forthcoming new album Start Over with two shows in Hertfordshire.

Ollie Baines, Humphrey Berney, Stephen Bowman and Jules Knight will be live in concert at Potters Bar’s Wyllyotts Theatre on Saturday, February 9.

They will then visit the Gordon Craig Theatre, in Stevenage, the following evening as they prepare for the release of their new album Start Over, which is released on February 11.

Fans can expect an evening of great music and entertainment from these four singers whose stunning harmonies and Rat Pack-like banter have been entertaining audiences around the world.

They said: “Since getting together six years ago, we boys have performed well over 600 shows at venues all over the world, that’s a lot of time to get to know each other on stage!

“The fun we have as a group seems to spread very quickly into the audience, that’s what keeps every show special for us.”

As well as classic songs from their three previous chart-topping and award-winning albums, Blake’s four members are looking forward to performing songs from their new album.

Start Over is a beautiful collection of contemporary harmony pop featuring original songs and a few carefully selected covers, including Paul McCartney’s Beautiful Night and Bob Dylan’s To 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 for Blake.

Inspired by great vocalists such as the Bee Gees, Boyz II Men and The Beach Boys, and having toured almost continually since 2009’s third album Together, 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 that they were creating something special.
