I’ve checked out sufficient music from Greyson Likelihood. That I perceive songwriting is paramount to him as a music artist. To this finish. That I grasp, it’s his selection of lyrical narratives that’s emphasizing he isn’t somebody who’s stepping again from opening up. That as a substitute, he permits us to see the vulnerabilities, warts and all. In his new music, it is usually true to say. That little by little I’ve seen, Greyson letting his guard down evermore. Yesterday Greyson launched “Palladium,” his fourth album. (An effort prefaced by the songs “Palladium“, “Athena“, and “Homerun Hitter”). Celebrating the discharge. We felt particularly honoured to have Greyson cease by for a chat with us. And to speak concerning the new album and share somewhat extra perception into it. (See Interview HERE)
Main on from the joy of the album launch, sees a video for the deeply, affecting observe, “My Dying Spirit” additionally arrive. It is usually price noting that the clip is the one stand-alone visible made for the “Palladium” period. The Damien Blue-directed clip is gritty, sincere and extremely emotional viewing. On this visible Greyson shares with us an unvarnished account. The place on this state of affairs we’re wanting somebody that has hit their lowest level, coupled with witnessing them searching for rehabilitation. The footage may be very unapologetic with out an oz. of popstar glitz and glamour. But with an undoubted proficient singer-songwriter forged within the starring function.

EQ reader’s homework is to take a look at Greyson’s album “Palladium” this weekend. Expertise this masterclass of lyrical poetry and intimate storytelling. (For my part, it’s a career-defining effort, up to now). The place he’s simply on par with the most important music stars on the planet the place he’s extra like another pop model of Lewis Capaldi. Tip: Pay particular consideration to the tracks “Mercury Yr” and “Homerun Hitter“. In consequence, it is best to be capable of perceive the comparability I’m trying to make. In any occasion my takeaway from listening to “Palladium“. Greyson Likelihood must be packing out arenas a lot the identical as Lewis Capaldi is doing.
