Even though he's no longer on the Big Machine roster, Nick Fradiani is probably working harder than ever. He's been writing and playing out non-stop since parting ways with the label that came as part of the win of the reality TV competition series. A month or so ago he joined "Big Shot" on stage in the Mohegan Sun's Wolf Den for a crowd-pleasing take on Billy Joel's "Downeaster Alexa." And today his first single, "I'll Wait For You," officially drops. Interestingly, Fradiani wrote the song with another CT resident - Fairfield County's Stephen Kellogg, a singer/songwriter whose own music you should also immediately seek out and purchase.
