OK. So I had put this kid on the back burner. He has almost no fan following right now. I think he’s really good. I listened to God Bless The Broken Road, and it does his voice good. He’s a recycled contestant, having been cut last year in Hollywood. He recently won something called Hawaiian Idol. He also competed in “Lulu Factor”, so I guess people are now knocking off X-Factor. When he has a live band with him, he tends to slow his songs down making them into funeral dirges. Breakeven and Drift Away are both guilty of this. But if you force him to sing at tempo, he’s really good.
Check out the videos. Tell me what you think. Inevitably, that one guy who keeps commenting that there is no talent this season on Idol is going to appear, but what do the rest of you think?
