An annotated timeline for X Factor finalist Josh Krajcik, who plays the House of Blues on Wednesday, Aug. 1


Singer-songwriter Josh Krajcik became a sensation after placing second on last year’s X Factor, the American Idol-like reality show designed to launch new talent. Since then, the Wooster native has signed a record deal with a Sony subsidiary and been busy splitting time between studios in L.A. and London as he records his major label debut. But Krajcik, who currently lives in Columbus, says he has been “craving some gigs,"so the soulful singer will play at 8 p.m. Wednesday, August 1 at the House of Blues. Here’s a timeline of how he went from the corner bar to national TV with his recollections of the important stops (including one at Cleveland’s Brothers Lounge) along the way. Tickets to Wednesday's show are $15 advance, $20 day of show.
