I was hugely into TV show The Voice when it made it’s way to the UK last year. With such a mixture of talents, mentored by some of the biggest artists in the industry (Jessie J, Tom Jones, Will.I.Am and Danny O’Donoghue), it was something new and refreshing to come out of the talent show scene.
I was really into two particular acts, Vince Kidd and Tyler James. Friend of the late Amy Winehouse, Tyler auditioned for The Voice and made his way into Will.I.Am’s group, becoming runner up to winner Leanne Mitchell (where are you now love?!)
Tyler’s high and impressive vocals have that Justin Timberlake twang that I like, yet with a British tone and a maybe more “alternative” sound. Worry About You, taken from album A Place I Go, features 27 year old rapper Kano. Being a big fan of Kano back in the Nite Nite and This Is The Girl days, it’s nice to see him back on the scene again.
