Jeffery Austin got one turn from Gwen Stefani after his The Voice season 9 Blind Audition. Nevertheless, he made it all the way to the finals, propelled by his soulful, emotional delivery of big modern songs. The singer sticks with what he does best–passion-filled ballads–on his new single “Only You.” Check out his interview and acoustic performance of the song at Yahoo’s Reality Rocks.

Chris Rene – Cali Ryder – Single

X Factor USA season 1 singer Chris Rene disappeared so completely from social media after his debut EP was released in 2012, that I worried for his well-being. Fans might remember that the rapper/singer was only 30 days clean from a heroin addiction when he auditioned for the show. So, it’s good to see Chris’ recent return to twitter, promoting his brand new single “Cali Ryder.” The song is not on Spotify yet, but a clip is available at both iTunes and Amazon.
