As mentioned previously, we celebrated St Patrick’s Day by attending The Kennedys show at Jammin Java, where I partook of Harp Lager and some damn fine chili. The opening act was Parthenon Huxley, who was also very good. Towards the end of his set Huxley called a friend up onto stage to sing a song they had just written together.
The friend was Kalan Porter, who we learned after the song was the 2004 Canadian Idol winner. While he was singing (and he has an amazing voice) I was thinking to myself…I wonder why this guy hasn’t tried the American Idol route.
Update: Wow – I had no idea how popular I was going to get among Canadians To answer the questions from the comments – they played one song, with P. Huxley accompanying Kalan on acoustic guitar. The song was sort of a pop ballad, although I think it could go in more of a rock direction depending on the arrangement Kalan and P. Huxley decide on. And for those of you asking about his hair…it is much longer and straighter than when he won Canadian Idol.
