Zach Callison (born October 23, 1997) is an American actor, singer, songwriter and voice actor.
Callison is known for voicing the titular character of Steven Universe. He is also noted for his roles in Disney shows including Prince James from Sofia the First, Billy from I'm in the Band and additional voices from Kinect Disneyland Adventures. He is also noted for King Tut in Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Young Jiro in The Wind Rises, and Billy Batson in the direct-to-video movies Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam (2010) and Justice League: War (2014).
In January 2018, Callison released his debut single, "War!", followed by the singles "Curtain Call" and "She Don't Know". On August 3, 2018 he released his debut EP, A Picture Perfect Hollywood Heartbreak. The EP is a concept album about celebrity life and mental illness revolving around the protagonist's breakup with a mysterious woman named Juanita, as well as his thoughts of suicide and substance abuse. Callison detailed his inspiration behind the album, saying "It's also a commentary on a lot of young actors and artists who have lost the battle; there's been a lot of dead 20 and 21 year olds in the industry this year, some of whom I knew or admired. I don't know how we fix the problem, but I needed to say something."
