Remember young Jai Waetford, the 14-year-old star of 2013's The X Factor Australia? He's not so young anymore: nowadays he's 17, handsome, still super talented and with an ever-growing legion of social media fans. He's got 166,000 Twitter followers, just shy of half a million on Facebook and his Instagram, loaded with selfies, cool street style and guitar solos, has 440,000 people's eyes on it. Not bad for a teenager from Campbelltown in Sydney's south-west, hey?
Jai's newest song, "Living Not Dreaming," has been viewed over a million times on YouTube and is one of those easy-listening tunes you won't get out of your head. It's the perfect example of why he's so frequently compared to Justin Bieber, but we like the chilled Aussie element Jai brings to his music. Have a listen to the new song below!
