EGMA 2012's mission is to find the world's most unique and original talent. What do you look for in music that inspires or excites you?


JC: I never look for it. It can appear anywhere at any time. I could be watching TV and I hear a song and say, “who is that?” or be driving in a car stitching around the stations and land upon something I have never heard before and say, “wow”. It’s rarely unique and original. Most of the time it’s a great song sang with conviction, a beautiful melody or an infectious rhythm. In my prefect world it’s all of the above. Does it resonate with me? Can I feel something? Does it take me somewhere? Does it motivate me?
