Greyson Chance: The most important person in my life right now would most likely be my dad. Now that I am 18 and slowly starting to get into adulthood, I am beginning to pick up some new traits that seem really similar to my father. He’s a big role model for me.
GC: I think that some people believe that with notoriety and recognition comes a life full of ease. The truth is that even with notoriety, there will always be something trying to tear you down. That’s why it is important to me, as an artist, to always focus on my craft and to keep on writing music.
GC: I think the largest challenge I’ve had in my career is to prove that I am not a gimmick and that I am an actual musician. At the end of the day, I started on the piano and will always be most comfortable there.
GC: Heights. I jumped off a 70-foot bridge into a river in Colorado over the summer and felt like a champion after the fact. Not to mention that my knees were shaking pretty strongly before I jumped.
GC: I am not superstitious at all, but I do believe in luck. I’ve hung out with many black cats and they’ve seemed to be all right.
GC: I would add Pete Davidson, Little Simz, and John Kerry to my squad. Seems a little strange, but Pete is my favorite comedian, Little Simz has a fresh new record and John Kerry is a badass who seems like he needs some young friends.
GC: The inspiration behind "Afterlife" is quite sad, actually. I wanted to write a record about a person’s feelings when they lost someone to the other side. How they might feel angry, sad and lost. Also, I really like how the dark lyric contrasts with the tempo of the track; I think it makes the lyric more interesting.
GC: Probably my favorite thing I miss about home would be Sundays with my family. Every Sunday back home, I would wake up, go to church with my family and then make it home in time for the Dallas Cowboys games. I can’t forget to mention that there [are] always a couple Coors Lights drank with Dad on the couch while watching the game.
GC: Probably Alessia Cara. I love her EP; she’s really talented.
GC: I am really passionate about Stand Up to Cancer and their continuous contribution to cancer research. Since my mom is a breast cancer survivor, I feel partial to the cause and want to support it as much as possible.
