Unsigned artist, no sources found beyond PR and stuff related directly to his standing on The Voice. Merely placing in a TV contest isn't enough. He has a publishing contract, but hasn't done anything with it yet. Author declined BLP Prod in October 2011 without comment. This currently seems to be a WP:TOOSOON, as I can't find anything that isn't from a PR mill. Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 02:49, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Keep - Jared Blake has charted over 50 times on Itunes and was on a popular television show. Jared has released a single titled 'Don't Mind' since The Voice and has released the video as well that has almost 70,000 views on YouTube. He is currently working with producer Skidd Mills of Skiddco Music on his new album. All copyright problems have been resolved and I say that there is no reason to delete Jared Blake's Wikipedia page. User:TheresaStach —Preceding undated comment added 01:28, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Please read WP:NMUSIC. None of what you said is notable per the guidelines for music biographies. iTunes charts are not reliable. Being on the Voice is not sufficient if he hasn't done anything else. Getting views on YouTube is not a gauge of notability per our standards. If he's currently working on an album, then he might be notable later on, when the album's out. But right now, he's close but no cigar.

  • Comment It would be helpful if anyone supporting "keep" could refer to criteria under WP:NMUSIC. There are 12 ways to be notable. If anyone thinks the subject is notable, it would clarify the discussion to refer to one or more of the numbered criteria. Logical Cowboy (talk)
  • Weak keep Meets criteria 1 at WP:NM. Found couple of Blake interviews that seem reliable and not from "PR mill". The problem for me here is missing inline citations. Needs to be improved, made more encyclopedic. --Sk4170 (talk) 22:05, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
  • How do you suggest something be "made more encyclopedic" from crap sources? Ten Pound Hammer(What did I screw up now?) 22:07, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
I forgot to specify that other than "crap" sources needs to be added. Here's a couple of interviews that I googled in less than five minutes. [1] [2] Can you shoot down both of them? They're no Rolling Stone, but still something and I'm sure there's more. Blake seems to be getting some exposure on country music radios and web publications after The Voice. --Sk4170 (talk) 23:19, 22 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Comment I think it would be permissable to cite those two sources in the article, but as they are interviews they are not really independent secondary sources which are needed to establish notability per WP:GNG. Logical Cowboy (talk) 00:54, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
