Grey DeLisle – ‘O Holy Night’

It’s wild to think that this crazy year 2020 is nearly over, and Christmas is a month away, but it’s not escaped the notice of Grammy Award winning artist, Grey DeLisle, whose latest single, ‘O Holy Night’ will have you reaching for your warmest and most snuggly festive jumper.

DeLisle puts her own stamp on the classic track, which she has arranged along with Marvin Etzioni, with strings arranged by Eric Gorfain.

Grey DeLisle has previously released two critically received albums via Sugarhill/Vanguard, and will be releasing her new album, ‘Willie We Have Missed You’, through Regional Records next year, with each song having its own music video.

If you don’t know Grey’s singing voice, you’ll certainly know her for her voiceover work, which has seen her speak for the likes of Vicky, in Fairly Odd Parents, Samantha “Sam” Manson, from Danny Phantom, and Mandy, from The Grim Adventures Of Billy & Mandy. She also makes use of her considerable comic talents in her stand up show, ‘My First Comedy Special’, which is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.

‘O Holy Night’ is a classic Christmas carol, originally composed by Adolphe Adam, back in 1847. The themes are timeless, and Grey’s arrangement is exquisite. The clip is shot in the studio, focusing in turn on DeLisle and the musicians, transitioning from black and white to colour and back again. It’s simple, but that’s all it needs, to put the proper emphasis on the vocals and instrumentals, rather than any other externals.
