Greyson Chance Twitter Q&A #PlanetX

twittertalk1Greyson Chance took to Twitter on Tuesday night to chat with fans and answer questions about PlanetX!

We went through Twitter and put together the questions and answers which can be found below!

twittertalk2

Q: Which song means the most to you?

What a great first question. It changes often, right now it would be a track called Benjamin Franklin, it’s the only piano vocal on the album. I couldn’t listen to it after we wrote it; made me too sad! Now i play that shit 247.

Q: Do you enjoy making your music in your home studio?

I love making music everywhere! The best thing about PlanetX is that is was made so unconventionally. we wrote songs in hotel rooms, sculpted melodies in restaurants, and wrote a lot of it in Oklahoma! Which naturally I love.

Q: Do you have any special rituals/routines that you do before recording???

No actually! However, when I was recording in okc, I would take a long drive in moses before sessions and blare daft punk.

Q: You recently started spending a lot of time in the woods. what is the reason?

I love spending time in forests and naturalistic areas. I do a lot of reading and writing out there. It’s my safe place!

Q: Thrilla in Manila was a epic fight, in which way this is related to the song?

Thrilla is about turmoil within friend groups when friends start becoming more than friends. The fight was purely a metaphor for those times when shit hits the fan, and of course I think we have all been there!

Q: Are all your songs in PlanetX inspired by by real life events?

Some scenarios or songs I would say yes, however most of the songs were written in my fantasy of what I wished was real; speaking as a person who I wanted to be, etc.

Q: What was the weirdest inspiration you had during PlanetX creation process?

I was keeping a lot of dream journals during the writing, or just weird notations of what I was dreaming. I know, I’m strange basically, I have some weird ass dreams. So that would probably be my most strange inspiration.

Q: You going to do a tour of this cd?

I’m not rehearsing this show for no reason!

Q: Are the tracks in any specific order?

There is an interesting sub-plot within the record that I’m curious if anyone will pick up on the tracks were arranged sonically, but also to fit that sub-plot! There is a story within a story!!!

Q:  As a songwriter, how do you deal with writer’s block?

It’s the worst thing! I try to spend a lot of time not revolving around music, sometimes the brain can get very overloaded; I spend a lot of time with friends and a lot of time sleeping.

Q:  There is a significant change in your writing style from when you started out to now, any thoughts on old songs?

As a writer, you evolve; that’s what happened with me! I still love HOTTN and my earlier works, but I’m looking for the future.

Q: Whatcha gonna do when I fight for u?

I’m going to say DAYYYUUUMMM and put that shit on WoRldStAr!

Q: What’s a song from PlanetX that the fans will relate to the most?

I think everyone will relate best to Moonlight. The lyric is, “When you’re ever feeling low, just look up for the moonlight,” I’m pretty sure we can all relate to that!

Q: Who are some of the producers you worked with on Planet X?

I worked primarily with my friend Gordon! Once I met him and got into the studio with him, I knew he was my guy.  However, Ron Aniello does make a production appearance on the album. Has anyone ever heard of Bruce Springsteen? 🙂

Q:  What’s your ‘usual’ reaction on people, criticizing your new music?

I accept the fact that some people are going to enjoy my earlier stuff more than this record; it’s something I can’t beat.  However, I respect those people and hope that they can find some source of joy from the record. This was just the direction that I saw for myself at this time and some people just aren’t going to like that.

Q: What is your favorite book at the moment? 

Right now, I am finding myself rereading the Prophet by Gibran. Helps one become a better person!!

Q: Favorite poem at the moment ? 

August Kleinzahler’s “Sleeping It Off in Rapid City”

Q: Which Amy Winehouse song would you say inspired you the most for PlanetX?

I featured “Take The Box” on the playlist… It is one of my favorite tracks from her; she was too damn good.

Q: What do you love most about Chicago??? 

The pizza and the trains.

Q: I’m really diggin’ the view into your world. I love the connection you have with us. What’s your opinion on Bowie?

He’s the champ. I have a live print of his on vinyl and I listen to it all the time. He was so good on stage.

Q: Last drink you drank?

Bourbon, neat.

Greyson Chance Fans and Favorite Things

What do cell phones, a bullet, Harry Potter, Tic Tacs, dry sugary mango’s and photography all have in common? Well, they happen to be among Greyson Chance’s favorite things!

We told you earlier this month that Greyson partnered with Everloop to bring us some behind the scenes footage as well as run contests for the fans. In part 2 of the series (just released), Greyson not only reviews fan submissions from the first contest and picks a winner but he reveals some of his favorite things!

Our favorite part of the video is the beginning bloopers in the studio! “Sally sells sea shells by the sea shore!” “Unique New York, Unique New York, Unique New York!”

Greyson Chance by the Beach

Greyson Chance was hard at work this past week but took time out today to relax by the beach.

In the mists of working on his next album, Greyson is also designing a brand new stage for his Asia tour.  Between that and keeping up with his study’s (school), it was nice to hear that Greyson had some time off this weekend to relax (or in his words “be lazy”).  After hitting the books today and catching up on some school work Greyson took a quick “field trip” and snapped us a picture of himself with the beach as his backdrop.  Check it out!

When was the last time you were at the beach?

Although Greyson wasn’t nominated for an award this year, a few of his friends were including Lady Gaga who won Favorite Album of the Year and Ellen DeGeneres who won Favorite Daytime TV Host.  If your a Greyson Chance fan then you know how much he loves Harry Potter, so we know he was excited to see that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 took home top honors for Favorite Movie, Favorite Action Movie, Favorite Ensemble Movie Cast and Favorite Book Adaptation.

The photogenic Greyson walked the red carpet and jokingly told our friends at Cambio, “I love how the photographers just yell at everybody… but you still have to smile”.

In speaking of walking the red carpet, here are some awesome photos of Greyson on the carpet rocking a sweet new hair dew!

Greyson Chance Crashes Bicycle

Greyson Chance spent Christmas eve doing something he loves to do, ride his bicycle!  He may have to get in contact with Santa for a last minute gift though and ask for a new bike after crashing it during his ride.  No worries though, Greyson said he is just fine, calling it his own little “Christmas Miracle”!

From the looks of that bike, it certainly is a Christmas Miracle he wasn’t hurt!

Greyson Chance Unwasted Weekend Challenge

Greyson Chance has issued a challenge should you choose to accept it!

Greyson is partnering with Above The Influence’s Unwasted Weekend campaign which urges teens to spend their weekends doing something creative, instead of wasting them on drugs or alcohol.

“Un-Self Portrait” is the name of Greyson’s challenge.  Greyson wants you to take a photo of things that represent you, without actually showing yourself in the photo. (Greyson says he would photograph his piano, soundboards or a computer from his recording studio for instance.)  Then post your photo on Flickr, Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook with a caption and tag them with the #unwastedweekend  hash tag so Greyson can see them and pick his favorites!

Checkout the video below featuring Greyson, issuing the challenge!

That is your challange… should you choose to accept.  (And you totally should!)

Greyson Chance Visits Fishy Foot Doctors

Greyson Chance recently paid a visit to some very fishy foot doctors!

While in Singapore, Greyson stopped by the Fish Spa and dipped his toes into a fish feeding frenzy!

“Doctor Fish” is a name given to two species of fish: Gorra Rufa and Cyprinion Macrostomus.  They feed on the dead areas of skin on people’s feet, leaving the healthy skin to grow


We wonder how it feels!?

Greyson Chance Visits ‘The Voice’ at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Greyson Chance and fellow teen singer (and star of Nickelodeon’s iCarly), Miranda Cosgrove recently visited ‘The Voice’ at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

CHOP, which had its grand opening about three weeks ago now has had a few special guests drop by but the young patients were super surprised when both Greyson and Miranda paid them a visit.

During their visit Greyson and Miranda talked with the children, posed for pictures and participated in an on-air interview on the hospital’s closed circuit radio.

Greyson talked about what it’s been like for him over the past year and where he finds his inspiration when making music.  Acting as a mentor, Greyson provided the kids tips on how to stay upbeat and motivated while pursuing their passion in music.

Greyson didn’t leave until every single child got an autograph which left smiles on all of their faces.
