Meet The Colourist, a 4-piece indie pop/rock band hailing from Orange County, California. Formed in 2009 by ‘Paper Thin Walls’ bandmates Adam Castilla (vocals, guitar) & Maya Tuttle (drums, vocals), along with musicians Justin Wagner (bass, keys) and Kollin Johannsen (guitar, bass). After a few years of touring locally (even opening for bands such as Panic! At The Disco & Grouplove), and winning awards including ‘Best New Artist’ at the O.C. Music Awards, they signed with Universal Republic Records in 2012 and have just released their self-titled debut album ‘The Colourist’ on March 25, 2014.
If you’re a fan of bands like Of Monsters and Men, Angus & Julia Stone and Grouplove – you will dig The Colourist. I guarantee their album will be the soundtrack to Summer 2014 for many people and they’ll be the next big indie band in no time. Their tunes are upbeat and super catchy with fantastic harmonies & charming lyrics. I’ve been listening to the album on repeat for the the past few days and can honestly say that there isn’t one bad song on the whole album which is super rare these days.
