Greyson Chance - "shut up" [Live + Interview] | All Eyes On

Greyson Chance is no stranger to the world of music. A trailblazer for a new generation of artists who were discovered on YouTube, the Oklahoma-born artist's performance of Lady Gaga's "paparazzi" at a sixth-grade talent show would turn him into an international sensational overnight. Yet, as quickly as it started, it ended. Finding himself dropped by his label and completely isolated from the team he once called family, Chance took a two-year hiatus from music.

Thankfully for us, Chance's hiatus only served as a brief interlude for a welcomed return that would result in his best collection of songs to date. portraits arrived as a debut album for a renewed Chance, who, in stepping away from music, discovered a newfound sound weaved from the threads of infectious and deeply sentimental sonics. In the midst of a phenomenal comeback year that has seen Chance to deliver otherworldly performances at PRIDE and announce a world tour, we invited our favorite Oklahoma artist out for a night that will stay with us for some time to come.

Delving into a moving rendition of "shut up" from his debut album portraits, Chance provided a salient reminder as to why he is a veritable pop star in the making. And be sure to stick around as we speak to Chance about his welcome yet unexpected return to music, the best advice for heartbreak, the Oklahoma City Thunder, and so much more.
