Colorfeels is a Nashville-based musical outfit blending the vocal layers of modern chamber-pop and the dynamic arrangements of rock ‘n’ roll from days-gone-by. On the heels of the release of their fresh new single, “Shapes”, and the still-recent release of their debut LP, SYZYGY, Colorfeels is poised to take on the live music and festival scene with regional and national tours, radio, and internet presence and involvement. The band plans to spend 2012 working on developing regional markets in the south-east U.S. in addition to writing and planning their sophomore album.
The initial writing for SYZYGY began in the winter of 2008 when musicians and writers Parker Cason and Justin Maurer teamed up to help push each other creatively. They soon realized that they shared a special musical connection worth pursuing. After more than a year of writing, the two were joined in a beautiful twist of fate by a long-time friend and musical collaborator of Parker’s, Taylor Zachry, who brought a new energy to the duo. Soon after, they got a short-term lease on a house in West Nashville and spent five months writing, rehearsing, and performing live. With the addition of multi-instrumentalist and texture auteur, Jared Ziemba, the sound of Colorfeels departed from its earthly origins, never to return.
Flash forward to September of 2010. The band, joined by Matt Scibilia on drums, brought an entire studio’s gear to the Cason family home in Brentwood, Tennessee. The historic 18-acre property, called Forge Seat, served as a gun forge during the Civil War. Colorfeels camped out at Forge Seat for a week with friends/audio engineers Ben Klise and Andrew Darby. Between Forge Seat and two studios in Nashville, Colorfeels worked with special guests to create a well received debut- an 11-song full-length album, which was recently released digitally, on CD, and on 180 Gram 2X12” vinyl. Special guests include Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), Joey Dykes (Darla Farmer, Paper Machete), Markus Midkiff (Kopecky Family Band), and Ben Kaufman (Night Beds).
Colorfeels has now spent a number of months developing the experience of their live show and playing shows locally and regionally, supporting and playing alongside national touring acts including Megafaun, Delicate Steve, The Apache Relay, and Kopecky Family Band. Joined recently by locally renowned drummer and SYZYGY percussion guest, Josh Minyard (The Janissary, Westfolk), Colorfeels’ recordings and live shows have more depth and rhythmic impact than ever.
The brand new single, “Shapes” was recorded at legendary studio, The Sound Emporium, and features dueling drum kits, New Orleans-style horns, and an uncanny air of pure, unadulterated fun.
