Jackson Guthy, who opened for Emblem3 and Cher Lloyd, is in a band now! The 19-year-old hottie is the lead singer for North of Nine, a rock group that’s managed by former American Idol judge Randy Jackson. The band consists of Jackson, Rob Ketchum (drummer), Michael O’Grady (guitarist), Nolan Frank ( keyboardist), and Edison Lo (bassist).

The guys released their first EP Alive in early March and recently stopped by our NYC headquarters and gave us a private performance of their first single “Can It Be You?”.

Check out their performance below and let us know what you think of the song in the comments.
