There was a time in the not too distant past in which music aficionados discovered new music (and, more importantly, new artists) on MySpace (I know...how quaint). And, that's where I found the Scottish band Driveblind, a group fronted by a voice named Terry McDermott that burned white hot for moment and then disintegrated.
But, not before recording an album that shuffled forward the other day as I was driving from point A to point B. And, I reveled in the sound.
So, as is my wont, I went searching for whatever happened to that band...and that voice. Imagine my surprise to learn that Terry McDermott went on to be runner-up on Season 3 of The Voice, qualifying with "Baba O'Reilly" and finishing with "I Want to Know What Love Is."
I never made the connection. But, it's certainly there.
