Nick Fradiani is out with a new extended-play record this month. The singer and songwriter, who won American Idol's Season 14, returned to his roots to finish this album. Fradiani says he drew a lot from his personal experience growing up in Connecticut.
Earlier this year Fradiani split from his record label, and has since operated as an independent artist. His single "I'll Wait for You" is now available on streaming services including Pandora and Spotify. The artist says streaming deals benefit musicians through reach and distribution, especially for new artists. "To me, it's just getting the music out there," said Fradiani.
