Greyson Chance is Back

New voice, new sound, same old love for Manila.

Cue the screams—Greyson Chance is finally back after five years, and he's not wasting time. The Philippines is one of his first stops after his triumphant comeback, and we were fortunate to catch him during his press conference in Marco Polo Hotel, Ortigas. On his return after his fairly long break, the world is met with a fresher, more mature version of him: standing at 6'1", his height isn't the only thing that changed over the course of time. Greyson's voice had become deeper—gone was the voice we all loved from "Waiting Outside The Lines" and "Sunshine and City Lights"—and this had become palpable in his latest EP Somewhere Over My Head, inspired by his return to hometown Oklahoma while taking a break from the music scene. "It's really overwhelming, you know. I was really nervous about this EP honestly. I was back in the States when we were writing it and I was particularly nervous because people got used to who I was, and how are they going to respond to this change?" But no worries, Greyson, because the Enchancers were more than thrilled to hear the new and improved Greyson Chance, judging from the positive response on the EP.

During his hiatus, Greyson spent his time studying, and he shares, "I encourage all my fans and my supporters to really stay in school and to work hard in it. I think it makes you a better, well-rounded human being." His stay in school definitely paid off, and now that he had just recently graduated from high school, what are his plans? "My next step towards school is I think I'd probably take some more classes on a collegiate level, and I'll focus on music for now." And what about acting, which seems like a common path that most artists in the music industry have been trying lately? "My mom always told me to only do what you're good at, and it's like when I got in front of the camera and I had some lines, I was like, 'Oh no, I'm not good at this.' So I'll stick to music for now and I’ll let other people act." Sorry guys, looks like we won't be seeing him on the big screen anytime soon, save for his documentary that is currently in the works!

At the end of the day, there is no denying that at the age of 18, Greyson has gone through a lot. He had his own share of ups and downs and failures and successes, but that certainly did not stop him from continuing to chase his dream. "My story's really one that I think a lot of kids can resonate to," he says. And a piece of advice from him?

"I would say be authentic, be yourself and to work hard and do something you're passionate about, and hopefully it all works out."
