Canada’s Daniel Powter has enjoyed everything from top honors in his own country to a Grammy nomination in the States. In 2006 he was the first Canadian pop star to perch at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in the U.S. since Celine Dion in 1999. Powter did that with the “American Idol”-ized tune “Bad Day,” and since then his solid writing skills and pop persona have struggled in the shadow of that huge song. It’s a shame: Powter is a master of easy, radio-friendly pop songs, and the uplifting tunes on Turn on the Lights not only have staying power but could make those blue Mondays just a little brighter. Anyone who enjoys Maroon 5 or Train should be on board with tracks like the hooky and sweet single “Cupid” (readymade for a romantic comedy soundtrack!) or the equally sticky “The Day We Never Met,” both songs with irresistible, billowing choruses. Tracks like “Crazy All My Life” burst with dance-floor energy, and a handful of piano and guitar-driven ballads like “Best of Me” are worthy of any Saturday-night pity party. Powter’s not yet a household name in America, but he should be.
