Never have we needed the message Danielle Hollobaugh‘s latest single carries more than we do now. The Florida-born singer-songwriter has recently released Patiently, an endlessly catchy pop tune with a message of empathy and understanding.
Hollobaugh’s determination and perseverance know no bounds. Blind since birth, she has let absolutely nothing hold her back and has gone on to win the national Talent Quest karaoke competition in the Women’s Country category, the Southeastern Idol competition in Florida, and taking home Best Songwriter and overall winner at the Florida Ignition showcase. With her first foray into the world of music taking place at the age of 6, Hollobaugh has spent the majority of her life refining her craft, and it shows.
“I wrote this song to highlight the importance of empathy, even when it hurts. It’s about falling for someone who’s been through a lot and isn’t ready to commit because they’re still processing or working through things. But having that special someone by your side in the future makes the wait worthwhile.” – Danielle Hollobaugh
A prolific songwriter, Patiently is far from Hollobaugh’s first release. And with that tenure comes the ability to craft a song that is both heartfelt and danceable. This track is defined by punchy, modern bass synths, and classic pop group vocals. The track has a great dynamic range, ramping up production and instrumentation after every verse and chorus, but never feeling overdone. This is a song that will easily have people on their feet, singing along to the memorable hook.
Also showcased in this track is Hollobaugh’s sweet, melodious voice. She has all the tone and emphasis required from a pop star, but there is real emotion present in the most emotional lines of the song – something pop music could use plenty more of. She has a sound that’s a touch reminiscent of a younger Taylor Swift, which makes her sound familiar but altogether her own.
In the current pandemic world crisis, there are very few who couldn’t stand to have a bit more patience. Danielle Hollobaugh has truly delivered a dose of something nearly everybody needs with her newest single. Open your ears to the much-needed message of compassion, but have a blast doing it with Patiently – a track that would make a fantastic addition to any summer playlist.
