Benton Paul

Benton Paul is another act coming from Utah. A singer/songwriter who lists his musical influences as Muse, John Mayer, Jamie Cullum and Brandi Carlile among others, he recently garnered fame when Joe Jonas (yeah, that Joe Jonas) declared Benton's song "I Only See You" as one of his favorites. He released his first album in 2008 and is currently working on his next. I'm really looking forward to it.

He recently announced a tour playing alongside Brooke White from American Idol, and not too long ago was listed on iTunes as a "What's Hot" artist. Here's to hoping he catches a break and can become more well-known.

His song "I Only See You" performed live:
