OPEN LETTER WRITTEN BY GREYSON CHANCE:

Hello everyone,

I’ve been reading your tweets & Facebook messages, heard some of the rumors, and have realized that I owe you some updates. I apologize for the delay, but I wanted to clear some things up with this letter. First off, to answer the biggest rumor, I am not taking a break or “giving up” on being an artist. When I read these rumors online, it makes me very sad to see people saying that I would give up. I want you all to know that I am devoted to my art and to you all to let you down like that. There are a lot of legalities involved with parting ways with Interscope, and my team has been working hard to get everything sorted out. As you can imagine, this process takes a very long time but just recently things have been getting finalized. While the legal situation has been taking place I have had time to mediate over my artistry and vision. The down time has given me the chance to get a new perspective of who I am as an artist, and has given me the time to write a lot of new music and grow a lot as an artist. Honestly, one part of me is glad that I gained an outlook over this time for I needed to clear some things within my head. I’m sorry if I let anyone down when Truth Be Told part 1 didn’t end up coming out in January as we had planned, but promise that I’ll make it up to you in the long run. For now, you can still enjoy it on Spotify and other streaming music services. I’m headed back into the studio very soon, and will shortly have some more official updates to share about what’s next for me and my career. I can honestly say that I am very excited about this new music and the people that I am working with coming up. I want you to know that I am not giving up for I love this art too much and I love you all too much. So I ask of you to please be patient, and don’t believe the rumors you may be hearing. Thank you so much for all of your continued love and support, and God bless.


With love,
-Greyson Chance

Story
Tagline
Singer/Songwriter + Lover of all music!
Introduction
At just 15 years-old, Greyson Chance has accomplished more than many musicians can hope for in their careers; two successful North American tours, performing at the White House, national television appearances on “Good Morning America,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “CBS Early Show,” and, most recently, the release of his debut album Hold On ‘Til The Night from eleveneleven/Maverick/Streamline/Geffen.

Much of Chance’s celebrity began with a fortuitous YouTube post of a performance by the stage-ready 6th grader for his fellow students of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi,” but the whirlwind of expsoure and international opportunities that ensued for this Edmond, Oklahoma native have been such that can only be earned by his sheer talent: “Chance’s gripping falsetto and seasoned vocal style bellie his age…” (US Weekly).

Now, with a critically-acclaimed debut album, which boasts a debut single “Waiting Outside the Lines,” that sold over 160 thousand copies to date and was the #1 physical single in the country for four straight weeks; topping media lists for young talent to keep an eye on; and a recent stint acting on the hit primetime FOX Television show Raising Hope, which he hopes to parlay into exploring acting further, Chance has become a household name.

The now infamous performance of “Paparazzi” in April 2010 went on to become YouTube’s #3 most popular video of 2010 and has received nearly 45 million views to date. Catching the eye of a producer at “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” led to Chance’s first guest appearance and a fateful return a week later, where DeGeneres announced that she had signed Greyson as the first artist on her newly formed label, eleveneleven. The rest – as they say – is history. Chance has now appeared on “Ellen” eight times, which includes debuts of his singles “Waiting Outside the Lines” and “Unfriend You;” toured North America with fellow teens iCarly’s Miranda Cosgrove, pop star Cody Simpson and Big Time Rush; and most recently, performed for the Campaign for Human Rights with President Obama in attendance in November and at Variety’s Power of Youth benefit. Chance will be honored in Pop Star Magazine’s ’12 in 12’ issue in January 2012.

Of his live performance, The Washington Post says “catching Chance [perform] at this stage in his career is akin to watching a thoroughbred of impeccable breeding gallop as a yearling. He doesn’t have his legs under him yet, and stumbles are possible, but the raw materials are such that it’s hard to bet against him running with the big boys in a few years.”

“Without Ellen, none of this would have happened. She's been so supportive of me and my music from the very beginning, and has also become an amazing friend!” says Chance.

The release of his debut Hold On ‘Til The Night was recorded in Los Angeles with famed producers such as The Matrix (Christina Aguilera, Avril Lavigne, Jason Mraz, Britney Spears) and Billy Steinberg (Enrique Iglesias, Katherine McPhee, Miranda Cosgrove). Unlike many teen artists, Chance took on much of the writing: "Writing and recording this album has been such a fun and exciting journey!” said Chance. “I've put so much hard work into it and I am so glad to have music out there for my fans. It's about overcoming fears but always powering through, and I think it's a message my fans really relate to.” Entertainment Weekly says, “Chance reveals a surprisingly mature voice.”

The album, which Rolling Stone magazine called a “potential blockbuster of a debut,” not only showcases Chance’s talents as a songwriter, vocalist and piano player but also his wide range of influences. From the empowerment ballad “Waiting Outside the Lines” to the light-hearted up tempo “Little London Girl,” Hold On ‘Til The Night takes the listener on a journey of teenage love and heartbreak complete with undeniably catchy hooks and Chance’s signature powerful vocals.

“This prodigy makes an impressive debut that owes as much to Coldplay as Bieber,” said People Magazine.

Looking forward to more exciting projects for fans in 2012, Chance is currently in the studio working on writing and recording more music and plans to make more television appearances.
