- The following trivia is taken from his r/Monstercat AMA on October 26, 2018.
- The music video for Loving Her Loving U was made before the song. As a result, he made the track to carry the story of the video, so a lot of the sound design and arrangement was done to match the flow of the video, like a film score. He compares the process to that of Disney's Fantasia.
- He would like to collaborate with other Monstercat artists.
- For She's A Killer, they went through 2 different music videos before going with the final lyric video that was uploaded.
- The music videos for each of his songs went through big changes with input and feedback from Monstercat team's, except for U&ME, which was uploaded without any changes.
- His story for the City of Oz has already been written, but he doesn't have an album currently planned. He said that if the people want a City of Oz album, then he would release one.

- He said that once Grant releases Wishes, he would become Justin's favorite Monstercat artist.
