Blake Lewis updated fans on his blog at MySpace (@blakelewis) on Sunday (March 29), talking about his busy week. The ‘American Idol’ season six runner-up writes:
This week has been intense! It started off with Darude and I playing a set in Clearwater, Florida. The atmosphere was cool, lade back vibe. Started off the set with some Electro Breaks, then went into some straight up bangers! I was a lil pissed, because some one bumped into my pedal board and F*d it up, so I wasn’t able to do any of my songs over my beats, but it turned out regardless.
From Tampa, I went straight to Miami for the Winter Music Conference. 2nd year now. And I couldn’t believe all the people that came out this year. It was up 60 percent. Man I love hearing that. More and more people are getting into Dance Music. We are blessed!!! BT and Christian Burns (formally of BBMak) met up with me and this is when things got crazy. 3 single guys in Miami!! It was like a scene out of Girls Gone Wild. HAhahah. Total frat party, playing pranks on each other, seeing who would do the craziest thing. We started a boy band called The Jaundice Brothers…. give the face that us total white boys got seriously burned in the sun, the moment we went out. haha. Watch out Jonas Brothers we’re gonna take over your teeny boppers and show them what real music is like.
Blake Lewis updated fans on his blog at MySpace (@blakelewis) on Tuesday (March 17), discussing what he’s been up to as the ‘American Idol’ season six runner-up continues work on his second album. The 27-year-old tells readers:
Been a busy month for me so far. I took a road trip down to LA with my best friend Jesse and now I’m in LA for a couple months working on the new record.
Things have been going great so far. Just played American Idol Extra, that should be on television in the next month. There’s talk of me getting back on American Idol to release my new single, which could be sweet.
Tommy Boy records and I have been working away on this new project and it is sounding amazing. Been writing daily and I’m really looking forward to hearing what you all think, when the album is released.
Blake Lewis checked in with his first video blog at his YouTube channel. The ‘American Idol’ season six runner-up showed off his Tommy Boy t-shirt, indicating he had just signed to the record label.
“I get to make my electronic record that I always wanted to make,” Lewis said. “Get to co-produce, write the record. It’s already been going on… Tommy Boy is giving me the opportunity to make a dance record that I’m already proud of, and we’re not even halfway there yet.”

It is almost here. They guys and I are so stoked!! We just spent all last week rehearsing and workin it out. We are more than ready to get out on the road and show you all a good time. I can’t do all the promotion myself, so the wonderful people at Idolbored and The B.L. Army are stepping in an helping me promote. Thank goodness! if I didn’t have fans like you all, I don’t know what I’d do. If you guys are interested in helping out, please get in contact with The Idolbored or The B.L. Army on my top friends list or go to www.idolbored.com.
On the road, I’m going to try and write a tour blog everyday and post it on Idolbored and here, as well as post bulletins announcing our shows.
As of now the tour is going to be starting in New York on the 5th at the Canal Room and finishing on the 16th in South Carolina at The New Brookland Tavern. The show at the Croc Rock, in Allentown has been cancelled. A new show in Connecticut has replaced that date. I’m now playing at The Mohegan Sun Casino. Should be a real fun show. Sorry to you all in Allentown. Catch the Northstar show in Philly if you can.

TOUR!!!!!!! The dates are up. So freaking ready to come out and rock mics all over this great country. I’m still trying to solidify dates for the West Coast. But so far, our first date is Sept. 29th in Providence, Rhode Island. We are heading out on the road with a band called Carlotta. Visit them here www.myspace.com/carlotta. The boys and I are STOKED and we are ready to get going on this.
I just got back from an amazing trip to Iceland and Norway, with The Hollywood Knights, a non-profit organization to help raise money for cancer. We went to Norway to play some B.Ball against the Norwegian National Team. Man did I suck. Bshorty is no baller! It was an amazing, short trip and I met some pretty amazing people. It was a little strange, cause I felt a little bit at home in Bergen, Norway. Its a port and reminded me a lot like home, here in Washington. Posted some pics for your viewing pleasure.
‘American Idol’ season six runner-up Blake Lewis checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@blakelewis) on Thursday (August 7), offering a little update on his sophomore LP, which he’s working on with his band’s drummer, KJ ‘Quantize’ Sawka. Lewis dropped by Arista Records, but is still represented by 19 Recordings. The 27-year-old writes, “Where to start… Orchestral Drive-By: KJ and I are about 5 songs deep now. Can’t wait for you all to hear this. I haven’t been this excited in a while. I haven’t been able to produce in a year and half, besides a couple songs on ‘A.D.D.’ and from what I have learned in the last year, it sure has paid off. STOKED!!!”
