Greyson Chance On His Rebranding, The Story Behind “Afterlife”, and the US Election

His third and latest single, “Back on the Wall”, has already garnered more than half a million views on YouTube. But more importantly, Greyson Chance is also back on his quest to slay the pop music industry after a hiatus of five long years. Greyson rose to prominence when talkshow host Ellen Degeneres discovered his rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” on YouTube. Since then, he has been blessed with a bundle of musical opportunities – including a record deal under Ellen herself. Many may still see him as a baby-faced talent who graced the world with his mellifluous, pre-pubescent voice…

Overwatch: A Masterful Blending of Genres that Leaves You Overjoyed

Overwatch has crosshairs in the middle of your screen and your health bar at the bottom left. And the similarity with most other First-Person Shooters (FPS) games end there.

This game’s hype and the fan anticipation didn’t just put it into the…

Comprising Aaron Marsh (vocals), Jonathan Bucklew (drums), and brothers Bryan and Stephen Laurenson (lead and rhythm guitars respectively), the band had recorded 5 albums and 3 EPs before their break-up in 2010. Four years later, the band have decided to reunite and have another crack at it. While their new album…
