History[edit]

Blended 328 was formed through the collaboration of Nashville musicians Be Ke Love and Gabe Jordan. In January 2012 the band was named "What's Hot for 2012" by Campus Activities Magazine and began touring the college and festival markets in The US, South America, Asia and Africa.[1] The group was selected as a showcase performer at several conferences for the National Association for Campus Activities and the Association for the Promotion of Campus Activities.[2][3] In July 2012, the band released its debut album "Go People" on indie label, South Jam Nashville. Initial reviews were favorable.[4]

In 2013, the band began its "Country Music for the World" tour with stops in Russia, Thailand, Cambodia, Zimbabwe, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Brazil, Paraguay and Pakistan.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13] The group recruited Rick Ross producer (Messy) David Mescon, for tour support, guitars and background vocals.[14][15][16] During the two-year tour, Blended 328 co-headlined several international music festivals including HIFA 2014 in Zimbabwe, The 2013 Usadba Jazz Festival in Russia and The 2014 Santa Lucia Festival in Mexico[17][18][19][20] In Pakistan, Blended 328 shared the stage with Pakistani artists Overload, Sketches and others.[21][22] The band's Pakistani tour included the cities of Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad with a final performance in Kashmir.[23] The band's new album, "One World Country Girl" produced by Grammy Award Winner Shannon Sanders is scheduled to be released in early 2018. Blended 328 is also the subject of One World Country Girl, a new documentary series about the bands work as United Nations sustainable development ambassadors. The series is produced by Rainlake Productions (VH1 News Presents: Religion: A Pop Culture History) and award-winning documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger Oprah's Master Class, Metallica:Some Kind of Monster, and the Sundance series Iconoclasts.[24][25][26]
