Grey DeLisle’s take on O Holy Night is a very reverent take on the classic track. The considerable talent showcased here by DeLisle becomes evident in the single’s first :20. There’s the lightest trapping of instrumentation present in this version, a smart decision to allow Grey’s voice to reach considerable highs. The vocal approach adopted here brings in hints of Stevie Nicks and Dolly Parton. The cover works as Grey is able to lay down the lyrics while adding mightily to the harmonies of the strings and guitars. We hope to hear more of DeLisle’s “O Holy Night” this holiday season. It’s fantastic to see her branch out beyond her ample VA work to knock her offering so far out of the park.
