A recent study found that men, in particular politicians with a deep-voice, tended to be more successful. With this in mind, Jamie N Commons should probably already have usurped the failing Coalition, dragged the country from financial ruin and quite possibly be King of the World.

At only 22-years-old, Commons’ gravel-tinged rasp was first unleashed on last years – The Baron EP. With a voice quite literally oozing a maturity beyond his years, the emotive and powerful blues record earned the Bristolian a place on the BBC Sound of 2012 long list, and no doubt caused many of his contemporaries to clock up some extra hours in both the practice room and whiskey bar.

New Single, Devil in Me, is a natural progression from The Baron’s stand out track – The Preacher. Once more touching upon the theme of religion, it is a grandiose piece of soulful pop, right from the rousing choir down to the lyrical subject matter of loss and regret.

Spending his formative years in Chicago, it is clear to see that  Commons’ music is more than indebted to the nostalgia and history of the Windy City. And while he may not have the experience that his heroes and peers possessed, it is fair to say that the potential at this early stage mean things look very bright for the young singer/songwriter.
