This guy is a phenomenon. I grew up loving anyone who was great on a keyboard; as a result, I worshiped Elton John, Billy Joel, Ray Charles, you name them. YouTube has had a fantastic influence on pop music lately, you only have to see Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson to prove what a jump start it has been to careers. When I heard about Greyson’s video from school showing him playing Paparazzi, I thought hey, a keyboardist. When I saw it and heard his talent shine through, I felt the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. This is a person with a huge amount of raw talent. He says he took piano lessons and that’s great. But lessons alone do not determine how successful you will be. You need the talent to come from your heart, from your very soul. And Greyson shines forth with a vengeance. I not only see a huge talent, but I see someone who will carry on the legacy of Billy, Ray, Elton and the rest. This is a must buy from a young man who will become a legend. Tell everyone you followed him from the very start, buy this EP. You will not be sorry. -Eric Smith
