Blake LewisBlake Lewis is the popular runner-up on the sixth season of American Idol. Born in Redmond, Washington, Lewis started singing at age five and competed in statewide talent contests while in high school. He became a beat-boxer at 17, inspired by the then Seattle-based a cappella group M-Pact. Lewis was a member of the Pacific Northwest a cappella group Kickshaw for four years. He also recorded several music videos and wrote a number of original songs.

After "American Idol," Lewis signed to 19 Recordings / ARISTA Records and started working on his debut album with a stellar line-up of producers and songwriters. Among the producers were Jonathan "JR" Rotem, who has worked with Rihanna (on her No. 1 single "SOS") and Sean Kingston; Ryan "Alias" Tedder, who has worked with Timbaland; and S*A*M & Sluggo, who have worked with two of the year's biggest new artists, Gym Class Heroes and Boys Like Girls.

Lewis' debut album, Audio Day Dream (A.D.D), will be released on December 4. "Break Anotha" is the first single off the album.
