Remember my man, John Stevens, from American Idol Season 3? Oh my how I loved this kid and his retro style and substance.
Well, guess what? He is back and all grown up and, after watching this video below, I love him even more.
And, his hair is still red! Always loved the red hair – it sets him apart from the rest of the pack.
This guy can really sing. His voice is immediately identifiable and his style is truly his own. Very shy, charming and endearing – almost playful.
“Intoxicated” was written by John Stevens and it is a catchy, toe-tapping, “put a smile on your face” kind of song that resonates long after the song is over.
In addition, John has surrounded himself with a stellar orchestra – The John Stevens Band – which signifies to me that this young man means business. He is ready to take the world by storm with his signature brand of music.
After he completed his American Idol journey, he packed up his bags and headed for Boston where he attended the Berklee School of Music and, in time, joined the Beantown Orchestra.
Smart move! Berklee is a mighty fine school and John was wise to strengthen his musical and vocal skills before branching out into the music industry.
Now, 10 years after his original American Idol audition, John’s ready to make an impact in the music industry and I have to say he is off to a mighty fine start.
Congratulations John! We are rooting for you all the way!
