Thanks to all who came along to see the wonderful Tula, an artist who I’m sure is destined to garner a lot of attention over the coming months. Despite only being with her band for a couple of weeks they sounded really tight, adding some great flourishes to her progressive folk songs. Look out for a new EP soon via Static Caravan.
It was also a real pleasure for us to finally have Timothy Parkes play at Colour. A geniunely gifted guitar player with a powerful voice for sure, but what really stood out for me was the depth and range of his songwriting. He’s equally adept at arresting narratives as ballads that have a timeless feel to them.
Special thanks to Richard Short and Paul Manasseh for their photography skills and as always, Justin Reynolds for making sure it sounds great.
The visuals for this show were edited together from various American home movies from the 1940s to the late 1970s. Mostly shot on Super 8 and chosen because they featured woodland and coastal scenes and a rich colour palette.
