This kid is insanely talented!
– He sounds great on his new song!
– The orchestration is great!
– The message is great!
Unfortunately, the song itself is just average.
Waiting Outside The Lines will be tough for radio, even adult contemporary stations.
He is sooooo young – and obviously talented – but he just lacks the experience of someone like Taylor Swift, whose been writing for years and will be 21 years old in December.
We hope Grey’s team – including Ellen and his managers (GaGa and Madonna‘s managers) – as well as the label pair him with some great co-writers and also make sure he just does some hit songs that he doesn’t even write on.
We look forward to hearing much more from him!
