Episode Recap: Season 8 Blind Auditions, Part 1

 

The Voice

It’s that time again: The Voice is back and so here come an onslaught of more singers hoping to make their name in front of some of the biggest superstars in music. The first night of blind auditions doesn’t go so well for my coach, but NBC never fails to deliver.

(Please note that there will be no recap for Tuesday night’s auditions, as I will be on vacation. Normal service will resume next Monday.)

Season 8 Is Here – Your Catch-Up Guide

The Voice

As I do every season, I kick off my coverage of a new cycle of The Voice by making sure that you’ve seen all my artist updates that have been posted during the off-season. Here’s what you may have missed.

Season eight of The Voice starts tonight at 8 PM ET/PT on NBC – to keep up through the season, check this site each week. You can also follow me on Twitter (@bigredchairs).

Artist Update: Tony Lucca

Tony Lucca

Today is release day for Tony Lucca’s new album, so naturally I sat down with him to discuss Tony Lucca and the journey to getting it made. Head on over to Examiner to read the fresh interview and please go and downoad his new record today. You can also check out my review of the record.

It is also release day for the new album from Kat Robichaud and her band the Darling Misfits, and I will have an interview with Kat later this week.

Artist Update: Gwen Sebastian

I had the opportunity last week to catch up with Gwen Sebastian, the fabulous Voice alumni who went from our show to singing with Blake Shelton and being nominated for an American Country Countdown Award. Click above to check out Gwen’s new music video, “Small Town Soul,” then click on over to Examiner to find out what Gwen’s up to now and into 2015.

Season 7 Finale

The Voice

Here we are, once again…the end of another season! Congratulations to Craig Wayne Boyd and Blake Shelton on their victory. On that note, because I’ve seen a lot of hate already: there’s nobody that’s more Team Adam than me, and I suppose there’s no harm in saying now that I was rooting for Matt McAndrew to win, too.

But having worked with him for the last six weeks, I can tell you that Craig is equally talented, and also a really great human being. He was always a gentleman, who conducted himself with class and treated me with respect. He’s obviously a talented artist and he’s also going to be a great representative for our Voice family, and that’s what counts.

I’ll be filling out this post through the day with my last couple of articles on the finale.

Artist Update: Terry McDermott

The Voice

One of my favorite people from season three of The Voice was Terry McDermott. Terry’s been so busy, however, that we hadn’t spoken since he’d left the show – until now. So it’s my pleasure to bring you the latest and greatest from our fantastic Mr. McDermott as he and his band Lotus Crush prepare to bring out their new album. And yes, Terry is still as awesome as ever.
