An unassuming teenager from Edmond, Oklahoma attends a local talent show and blows everyone away with a cover of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi”. The next minute, he’s on a plane to Los Angeles to meet Ellen DeGeneres.
You really couldn’t write a better story and in Greyson Chance’s case — you couldn’t produce a better debut album. Today, August 2, marks the release of Chance’s highly anticipated debut — Hold On Til The Night. Featuring the singles “Waiting Outside the Lines” and “Unfriend You”, Hold On Til The Night is not only adorable but a highly mature release for a 13 year-old who impressively writes his own music.
In the past few months, you’ve probably heard the Justin Bieber comparisons but in actuality the two share very little in common. In fact, Greyson Chance has the potential to surpass stereotypes and break out of the convention of what teen performers are suppose to sing and sound like.
When TeenChive chatted with Greyson back in May the singer-songwriter promised a record that would shock and surprise because everyone thought Chance is heading down “that certain pop road”. He was right, Hold On Til The Night is not your average album by a 13 year-old. It’s what dreams are made of.
