Concert preview: Columbus singer/songwriter Josh Krajick makes a holiday homecoming

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

The Columbus crooner has a voice to match his visage: slightly unkempt, yet endearingly warm and soulful. Krajick, best known for his stint on the singing competition “The X Factor” (he finished as runner-up during in 2011), followed his televised run with the lush, richly produced Blindly, Lonely, Lovely, which surfaced in 2013. More recently he appeared on the local web series the Mug & Brush sessions, working through a pair of comparatively raw, stripped-down tunes that he carried with little more than the power of his whiskey-kissed vocals.

George Barrie also performs.
