WHO: Alexis Marceaux & The Samurai

WHAT: introspective, angel-voiced bayou pop bent for L.A. stardom

Millions of people will tune in every week and see Alexis Marceaux — she's competing on NBC's The Voice, a main event singing-quest very much unlike its Botoxed Star Search predecessor American Idol. Between flying to Los Angeles to tape and writing and recording for her other projects (she'll release an EP with The Samurai, aka Sam Craft, in November), the 23-year-old is learning Cajun French for a contemporary swamp-pop supergroup (Sweet Crude), which also debuts in November. With The Samurai, the multi-instrumentalist shifts from her more straightforward folk-pop to "something that's still really wacky, but still catchy enough you could hear it on the radio." Catch Marceaux on NBC at 7 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays beginning Sept. 10. — Woodward
