Jamie N Commons - 'Devil In Me'

Much better than expected

Jamie N Commons is possibly the only One To Watch media anointee of 2012 to have based his career on 1992 chart stars The Blessing’s Number 30 hit, ‘Highway Five’. That song remains swell, and this one’s actually meatier than you’d expect. But in the nicest possible way, how much can you truly warm to someone who comes on like they’re auditioning for a new production of The Commitments?
