A classical crossover vocal group that gained initial recognition given their formation on Facebook, Blake acquired broader attention in 2007 when they were tapped to be featured on "World in Union," the official theme song of the England rugby team ahead of that year's Rugby World Cup. Members Ollie Banes (tenor), Jules Knight (baritone), Dom Tighe (baritone), and Stephen Bowman (bass/baritone) found their voices -- as it were -- at a house party after connecting online. The group used their success with the aforementioned website to hook up with their manager, Daniel Glatman, who was able to score them a record deal with Universal Music. November 2007 saw their self-titled debut album released, a mélange of classic pop tunes, soundtrack favorites, and notable classical songs. ~ Chris TruePortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
