Matt McAndrew may have placed second on the seventh season of The Voice that concluded Tuesday, but the New Jersey native is looking forward to his future.
On Thursday, McAndrew chatted with NJ Advance Media's NJ.com about his time on the NBC reality singing competition and what's to come in the future.
The Jersey musician was a top contender for majority of the season, which is pretty impressive since he revealed he used to be "terrified" at the thought of performing in front of people.
McAndrew had such an incredible time on The Voice, placing in the iTunes Top 10 on multiple occasions. He was actually the first of Season 7 to achieve the first iTunes bonus multiplier since his performance of Take Me to Church peaked at no. 5 on the iTunes Top 200. McAndrew peaked at no. 2 with his rendition of The Blower's Daughter while his performance of Make It Rain let him sit at no. 5. His original song, Wasted Love, soared to no. 1 and his duet with his coach Adam Levine, Lost Stars, took the no. 10 spot.
"Maybe this comes across in my performance and everything, but I guess I take it pretty seriously, it's sort of like an intimate thing to share with someone. It feels like a commitment to me," the singer revealed.
He shared his time on the show "was quite obviously such an amazingly positive experience".
He told his McFANdrews on his official Facebook page Wednesday: "I think we should all be excited about what's to come!"
NJ.com reported he's currently in New York taking meetings to hopefully land a record deal. On Jan. 23 he'll be playing to a sold out crowd at World Café Live.
