Heartfelt trip-pop from a sexy, soulful Canadian.
No irony was intended when this Canadian wrote the first single from his self-titled debut. But with AMERICAN IDOL using it as the theme song for departing contestants, "Bad Day" has helped launch Powter's winning streak. Nice, right? Not that this soul-slanted singer is a stranger to success. DP, which showcases his piano-banging skills, became a hit in France when "Bad Day" topped the charts over there. When you take a spin through with it, expect a sound that blends Elvis Costello's everyman insights with Clay Aiken's poster-boy pop.
