The Voice top four finalist Jeffery Austin stood out on Season 9 for his plaintive balladry, but his new single, “Bulletproof,” is unexpectedly effervescent. The synth-driven track, mixed by Peter Mokran (Christina Aguilera, Toni Braxton, Prince, Flaming Lips) and co-written/produced by Sayers Club music director Nick Rosen (Bruno Mars, Macy Gray, Feist), still addresses Austin’s go-to topics of heartbreak and loss — but its uptempo chorus gives off an ‘80s vibe a la Bleachers or Carly Rae Jepsen, and the song showcases entirely new facets of the crooner’s vocals.

Americana artist Paul McDonald first caught the public’s attention on American Idol Season 10, with his sparkly Nudie suits, raspy vocals, abandoned dance moves, and adventurous song choices.

I’m inclined to keep that promise.”

Voice fans will surely remember Season 4 Team Blake badass Grace Askew, whose Memphis-bred blues ‘n’ country “bluntry” sound (yes, she’s patented that term) set her apart from the pack. Now Askew is returning with a six-song EP, Warrior (due out early 2018), and Yahoo Music’s Reality Rocks is thrilled to premiere the EP’s epic title track. Shortly after her Voice run, Askew visited Yahoo for a candid interview, during which she ruminated on the current state of country music and her hopes that old-school country would make a comeback.

Life hasn’t always been very funny for pop-rock singer-songwriter Jax.
