Charlie Molloy – Cool quirky tone. You’ve got a cool mage and really nice guitar work. Seemed to struggle a little on the high notes, but this is something that can be worked on with a good vocal coach, click here for more on singing teachers.
Iman Ortha – Lovely Iman. Great original song. Cool image and a good vocal range and delivery. The hand movements were a little distracting at parts, click here for more on performing on stage.
