Greyson Chance, ‘Hold on ‘Til the Night’ – Song Review

Greyson Chance has made quite a debut with his lead-off album. Just 14 years old (as of Aug. 16), the ‘Unfriend You‘ singer has toured the country multiple times and garnered enough fans to headline his own shows — pretty impressive given that no one knew his name until he became a YouTube sensation in April of ’10. ‘Hold on ‘Til the Night,’ the title track of the record, encompasses the teen’s multiple talents and gives us a breath of fresh air.

“I climbed up on a tree to get a new perspective / If love is worth the time, the price is being rejected / Just as I start falling down, I turned this around,” Greyson sings in one wise-beyond-his-years verse, which is followed immediately by a big-and-powerful chorus.

“Run into the light, get out of your own way / Not afraid to fight, believe in what you say / I’ll hold on ’til the night / Hanging by a thread, I’m not scared to let go / Thoughts inside your head that creep up to get you / I believe this is right, so I’ll hold on ’til the night,he continues without letting go of the catchiness that makes pop music fun.

Like all of Greyson’s songs, there’s a lot of depth to his title track. Perhaps we’re just suckers for a cute kid smile, but there’s just something about the Oklahoma native that screams ‘staying power’ to us. As a whole, we rated his debut album 4 out of 5 shining stars, and tracks like this one are the reason why.

While ‘Hold on ‘Til the Night’ is not currently a single (he’s still riding the waves of ‘Unfriend You’), we think it’d make a heck of a contender for the next track. That or ‘Heart Like Stone,’ or ‘Little London Girl,’ or … You get our point. And, it’s available for a free download right now from WMRisers, so head on over to their Facebook page and get your very own copy. You’ll be glad you did!
