"Only person in the scene that could come close is Tyler Carter (Woe, Is Me)"
i was thinking exactly the same thing, haha.
and honestly, i'm glad they haven't picked someone like tyler to "fill jonny's shoes" because whoever tried to sound similar to jonny would not succeed. while tilian isn't like jonny at all, that's the reason i'm interested. it'll be nice to hear someone else's take on the songs (and i love his voice anyway.)
and i agree with the justin timberlake, btw. jonny does cry me a river live sometimes, doesn't he? i assume jt is one of jc's influences.
