Host: Blake Lewis

Live looped Beatbox with a flare for the unexpected. Blake loves to improv and get the crowd involved by sampling whatever crazy thing they can think of. Sometimes it’s a riot.

Blake Lewis consistently moves towards the future. The singer, songwriter, and producer is about to kickstart another phase for pop music with his first single for Republic Records, “Your Touch.” A sexy hybrid of massive melodies and electronic dance music energy, it’s an infectious introduction to his forthcoming third full-­‐length album, Portrait of a Chameleon, and the next chapter of his illustrious career.

This new single and album are poised to elevate him above and beyond what fans know of him from his 2007 debut, Audio Day Dream, which moved over 350,000 copies and his follow up, Heartbreak on Vinyl from 2009. While the success of these two albums lead him to tour and perform alongside everyone from pop powerhouses Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Wyclef Jean to electronic luminaries BT and The Crystal Method; gained him recognition as the first former American Idol to reach #1 on both Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay Chart and Dance/Club play chart; and the opportunity to teach First Lady Michelle Obama how to beatbox at a luncheon in her honor, Portrait of a Chameleon will show Lewis’ truest colors and open new doors for him.
The magic he so speaks of, beaming with pride, is also going to keep listeners engaged for a long time to come. “I want people to listen to it over and over again,” he concludes. “I think they’ll find something different each time they hear it. I never wanted to stick to one style or stay in one place. I haven’t been more proud of anything in my life.”
