I got put onto this guy by my sister’s boyfriend – they’re currently in Oz together travelling, heard him on the radio out there, and he knows I’m into this kind of thing so recommended it. Turns out he was on Australian Idol about five years ago when he was 16. He didn’t win, but that looks like a blessing disguise – he has a much rawer sound than being part of the Syco machine would have allowed. His voice is gorgeous – very Jeff Buckley-esque, which is never a bad thing.

Yesterday he announced a gig in London, 7 quid a ticket, and it sold out in hours. Releasing tickets for another one today, that sold out in 10 minutes! Give the song below a listen, and if you like it try and get hold of his back catalogue, you won’t be disappointed.
