An Interview with Greyson Chance

The air in Brighton Music Hall was filled with electricity this past Sunday night (yep, you read that right—a packed house on a Sunday!) as Greyson Chance took to the stage. Flanked on all sides by fluorescent tubes of pulsating light, the singer-songwriter captured the audience with the power of his voice. Greyson’s stage-presence, complemented by a delicate command over his body movement, a quick outfit-change, and personal vignettes, made for a truly remarkable experience. I got the chance (pun intended!) to catch up with Greyson before his show, to talk about his newest album, portraits, and his life as a child-sensation turned practiced musician.

WHRB Interviews (Sandy) Alex G

While sitting backstage with the man whose music has served as the background track for my young adult life, I figured it was only fitting to hear these distant melodies as I began exploring the mind of someone who for years now has offered me such hypnotic and immersive sonic experiences.
