‘The Voice’ winner is poised for ‘something bigger’ – He cites John Legend, Pharrell Williams, Robin Thicke and Bruno Mars as being the type of artists who do just that, and hopes to join their ranks with his own record soon. He’s aiming for a fall release. “I’m in the process of putting that together,” he says. “I’ve got the tour first, so I have to do that. Once I get over that I hope to get in the studio and start working on it. I’m getting something together with writers, and I want to write, too. There’s gonna be those classic soul influences, a little bit of funk, and I want to bring in that Lenny Kravitz influence rock element. At the center of it all I want it to be a pop record with as much crossover as possible.” – STLToday
