“Not only does he have a tremendous voice, but he’s also a star. He’s got the charisma, he’s got the smarts, he’s got the looks – it’s all right there.
“I really admire the way he puts himself out there. His music is not typical, but he really figured out how to draw and audience in. I think that’s because he understands who he is as an artist. He appeals is so broad: I was hanging out with Myles Kennedy from Alter Bridge – we were sort talking about other artists we love, like Jeff Buckley and a few others – and Michael Bublé came up. We both agreed on him.
“Michael has a terrific voice – very rich, emotional and endearing. He knows how to tell a story in song. Sure, it's true that he kind of touches on Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennett – he draws from them – but he’s really his own man all the way. He takes from his influences and makes what he does very contemporary.”
