I have been a fan of Graham Colton since 2004ish, when I saw him perform in Chicago as the opening act for another band. At that time he was "The Graham Colton Band". I really enjoyed his performance and purchased a CD at the venue. Over the years, I have also enjoyed his subsequent music as an acoustic artist and a solo performer, as well as recorded tracks he teamed up with a band for. In 2013, I was privileged to support his Kickstarter campaign when he announced his energetic and ambitious endeavor to create a different, new sound and have not been disappointed! The sound and the lyrics definitely have a new, fresh vibe and it is just an all-around enjoyable and beautiful piece of work. The songs on this album range from haunting, to energetic feel-good (alternative) pop, to tunes that are filled with such beautiful poeticism and enveloping melodies, you never want them to end. This album is definitely recommended!
Besides his musical talents, the thing I really like about Graham is his attentiveness to his audience. I have never known any artist to keep in such close contact with his fans, via Facebook, Twitter, email, etc., and really encourage their involvement. He always sticks around after his live performances for signing, pictures, or just chatting. You really get a sense of the value he places on his fans.
I love this new album and have been listening to it over and over again... If you are an old fan, a new fan, or just happen to have ended up here looking for something different, you've come to the right place!
