The 19-year-old has been through quite a bit at such a young age, when a couple of years prior to being on “The Voice” he contracted viral myocarditis, triggering congestive heart failure. Before being placed in a medically induced coma he told his father that he would wake up before the Superbowl. As promised he came out of his coma the day before the Superbowl. That was the year “The Voice” followed the big game, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Winning the hearts of millions of fans on the music competition show with his Justin Bieber looks and great backstory, Bourg never looked back after his elimination, as fans cheered him on through Twitter. After he released his debut single “Everyone’s Got A Story,” the MacPack, as his fans are called, drove the tune to the top 60 on iTunes.
After releasing his first song the MacPack tweeted their praise, including Christina Millan who wrote, “I love the new @BourgMackeznie single! great song! Congrats!”
“Smooth” rocker Rob Thomas joined the MacPack as he tweeted “Hey Guys! Our friend MacKenzie Bourg has a new single out.. check it out!”
At 19 Bourg has a very soulful voice and pulls off a very nice Jason Maraz sound in “Everyone’s Got A Story.” It’s a great tune and nicely done video.
Soon enough you will be reading about other up and coming singers being referred to as having a MacKenzie Bourg kinda sound.
The sometimes serious, sometimes mysterious, and always mystical Gemini Syndrome has just released a new video of their new track “Pleasure and Pain.” This should placate their fans who are waiting patiently for the release of their new record due out in 2013 – not too much longer!
This band of lyrical geniuses comprised of Aaron Nordstrom (lead vocals), Rich Juzwick (guitar), Mike Salerno (guitar), Alessandro Paveri (bass), Brian Steele Medina (drums) have totally killed it with this video.
“Pleasure and Pain” is a great song with some heavy lyrics and some heavy guitar playing, as Nordstrom pounds out some awe inspiring guttural verses with just the right amount of his softer side, if there is one.
“Pleasure and Pain” is a testament to the talent of Nordstrom’s vocals, and the great guitar work that can be heard throughout the piece by Juzwick and Salerno.
The video really brings “Pleasure and Pain” to life with some fantastic graphics and some nice close-up and gritty footage of band members playing their instruments – not those instruments!!
Have a listen and enjoy the video!
