New Music Monday #13

Timothy Carroll!

If I Were You
by Timothy Carroll
Album: Where the Storms Would Come (2012)

Brisbane's Timothy Carroll has released the first single from his upcoming second LP and it's undoubtedly destined to be his breakout track. 'If I Were You' keeps the focus on Carroll's stellar vocal delivery as the music builds and builds upon itself in the background, rolling along until its stunning conclusion. You find yourself being drawn further into the song with the introduction of each new element and before you know it, the song's over and you're already geared up to hit 'play' again. Repeat that a couple of times and you're left eagerly anticipating the release of Where the Storms Would Come. JJJ will hopefully get behind Timothy Carroll in a big way this year and I expect 'If I Were You' to follow a similar path that Emma Louise's 'Jungle' did last year. Top 20 on the Hottest 100? If 'Big Jet Plane' can get to #1, anything can happen.

A Little Too Young
by Sunday Lane
Album: From Where You Are (2012)

You'd be forgiven for thinking that Sunday Lane was a touch older than her 22 years of age would suggest. There's a quality in this singer-songwriter's voice that is more becoming of an artist with a whole lot more experience. Her voice is warm, charming and the message she's sending through it is kinda infectious. Give 'A Little Too Young' a listen and try to keep that smile off your face. Couldn't do it, could you? Oh, you could? And just how did you lose your soul? Combine her voice with some lyrics that seem wise beyond the years of their writer and you've got yourselves one of the most intriguing new artists of the year. I didn't know a thing about this young performer from Tulsa before today, but I'll be finding out as much as I can now. First thing to do? Check out her debut album, From Where You Are.

Wide Awake
by Katy Perry
Album: Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection (2012)

If the rumours are true and this is Katy’s four and a half minute visual take on her split with Russell Brand, then I’m totally Team Russell.

Jo Michelmore gives the 'Wide Awake' video two Key-Dollar Sign-Ha's out of five...
