In Season 3 of American Idol, 16-year-old John Stevens became the youngest contestant ever to make it to the finals. After getting eliminated from the Top 6, John went on to release an jazz album under Maverick Records.

Unfortunately, John’s record wasn’t a hit, and he and Maverick parted ways. Following the split, John headed for Boston where he attended the Berklee School of Music and eventually joined the Beantown Orchestra.

Now, 10 years after his original audition, John’s ready to step back into the spotlight! He’s formed a 7-piece jazz group called (surprise, surprise!) The John Stevens Band, and has released his first music video for “Intoxicated!”

Watch it below!
