Last week after Javier Colon took the title as The Voice, some people claimed that Dia Frampton had been “robbed” of the title. As much as I love Dia’s voice, in my opinion, the only contestant on The Voice this season that was “robbed” of another chance to move on was Tyler Robinson.
After Tyler took on Patrick Thomas during The Voice’s battle rounds, Blake Shelton chose not to take a risk and advanced Patrick to the next round. For me, it was the disappointment of the season, because Tyler stood out as the stronger vocal contestant.
Fear not, Tyler tweeted that he will be releasing his debut original single, “Get Some” tomorrow, July 5! Take a listen to a short clip of “Get Some” below!
“Get Some” was written by Tyler, Joshua Horne (executive producer), and Phen Mas (producer). The track was additionally produced and engineered by Dan Whittemore. The track was mastered by Donny Baker at Studio 22 in Sun Valley, CA.

Don’t forget to go “Get Some” tomorrow!
“Sweet Serendipity” is the first single off of Lee DeWyze’s upcoming debut album, Live It Up. DeWyze wrote the track, along with David Glass (who also produced the song) and Jordan Lawhead.
Upon first listen, “Sweet Serendipity” is a lot more pop sounding than I was expecting from DeWyze’s first single. The song does have a slight Jason Mraz-y vibe to the melody that I definitely appreciate.
Right around the chorus is where the wordiness of the song becomes reminiscent of Kris Allen’s platinum selling debut single, “Live Like We’re Dying” that was released last year. The choruses of both of these singer’s respective songs are just packed with lyrics. In DeWyze’s case, his chorus is filled to the brim. I have to wonder how he plans to pull this song off live while staying on key, since singing on pitch wasn’t exactly what he was known for during his run on American Idol.
I do think that “Sweet Serendipity” is a good song. I figured that his first single would be a little more rough around the edges and not quite as polished. However, in a time where a song needs to be successful on the radio, I can understand why an upbeat and fun song was picked to lead off DeWyze’s album.
If you were a fan of DeWyze while he was on Idol, I think the song may initially throw you for a loop. Due to the catchy melody and lyrics, it should grow on you in no time.
“Sweet Serendipity” is available on iTunes now. DeWyze’s debut album, Live It Up will be released November 16.
