Q&A: Meet 'Gone' Star Sam Upton

February 25th, 2012 10:00am EST
Sam Upton
If you catch the new Amanda Seyfried thriller Gone this weekend, you'll catch another interesting actor: Sam Upton. Who is he? An incredibly versatile player.

In Gone, Upton plays McKay, one of the police officers that Jill (Seyfried) turns to in order to catch the serial killer who once came after her and has now targeted her sister. The flick has a cast of names that TV buffs will adore, from Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter to Justified boss Nick Searcy, but don't overlook the affable Upton, who recently chatted with me about the film and the many other interests he has.

Let's start at t...

Q&A: Gabe Dixon Forges A Solo Identity

January 23rd, 2012 11:00am EST
Gabe Dixon
In our recent interview, Jon McLaughlin referred to Gabe Dixon as "a huge influence on me and he's somebody who I think everybody should know."

I took his recommendation and went looking. It didn't take me long to discover why McLaughlin would speak so highly of Dixon: like McLaughlin, he's just a good guy trying to make good music in the world.

After a decade fronting The Gabe Dixon Band (last heard in 2008), he's now trying to establish himself as a solo artist. His debut solo album, One Spark, was released in the fall and I caught up with Dixon in between stops on his subsequent tour w...

Brittany's 'The Voice' Blog: Catching Up With Season 1

January 3rd, 2012 11:00am EST
The Voice
Here's the latest on and around NBC's The Voice: I look back on what each team from Season 1 accomplished after the show. Who had the best 2010?

What happened after The Voice ended? We know that the Top 8 artists went on a national tour and that a CD of highlights was released. The majority of the artists continued to actively perform across the country, and the coaches kept themselves busy with touring, new albums and Grammy nominations.

Behind the scenes, Christina Milian replaced Alison Haislip as the show's social media correspondent, and teams were expanded from 8 to 12 artists for...

Brittany's 'The Voice' Blog: 'Sing You Home' For The Holidays!

December 20th, 2011 11:00am EST
The Voice
Here's the latest on and around NBC's The Voice: Team Blake's Xenia releases Sing You Home, while Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green have something to say about the postal service...

Xenia has a new EP just in time for the holidays. Sing You Home contains four new songs from the Team Blake semifinalist. You can download the EP here.

While the record may be short, it's an outstanding sampling that shows how much the 17-year-old has come out of her shell and continues to improve since her time on Team Blake. She sounds miles away from the 'shy girl' whose nerves got the better of her in battle ...

Music Talk: Get To Know Jon McLaughlin

December 15th, 2011 11:00am EST
Jon McLaughlin
If you only know Jon McLaughlin as the guy who performed the hit song from Disney's Enchanted, you've only scratched the surface.

The Indiana native is thankful for the recognition that the Academy Award-nominated "So Close" brought him, but wants you to know that it's not his whole repertoire. "It hasn't gotten old yet," he says of the association when we meet in San Diego before a recent gig. "The only thing is that it's so different than what I actually do. When there were some people who only knew me from that movie, they would come out to shows expecting a Michael Buble kind of a th...

Demi Lovato 'Here We Go Again' Album Review & Music Video

July 21st, 2009 3:19pm EDT
Demi Lovato Here We Go Again review
Like Britney Spears before her, Demi Lovato pretty much admits in the title of her sophomore album that she's serving up more of the same the second time around, but unlike Britney, that may not have been Demi's intention.

For Here We Go Again, Lovato makes a relatively clean break from the Jonas Brothers, who penned much of her debut, Don't Forget, drafting sensitive AAA singer/songwriters Jon McLaughlin and John Mayer presumably to give Lovato a bit of mature veneer, a subtle shift buried underneath the relentlessly cheerful Radio Disney production and Lovato's irrepressible spunk.
