It is December 2013 and you know what that means! It is time to expand our 'Band of the Month' list by adding the next band who will be receiving this month's feature.
Over the last week we have asked you, the fans, to tell us who you wanted to see receive this month's featured spot. So, with four options to chose from, you guys cast your votes. And, from Winkler, Manitoba, the band by the name of The Color sat at the most votes when the voting officially ended.
The Color, which is comprised of friends Jordan Janzen (vocals / guitar), James Shiels (guitar / backing vocals), Gabe Boschmann (guitar), Larry Abrams (bass / backing vocals) and Tyler Martens (drums), create an unforgettable pop/rock sound. Plus, with Jordan Janzen's phenomenal vocal skills, accompanied alongside their [always] perfect melodies, and this band's music will be stuck in your head for ages.
"After nearly six years as a solo artist, singer-songwriter Jordan Janzen has reunited with old band mates and continues to push deeper into the music scene."
The Color released their first full length record, self-titled The Color, to their official iTunes page on March 13th 2012. And, of course, the album was a hit, instantly building their [growing] fan base even further.
Vocalist Jordan Janzen has undoubtedly been working hard within the music industry for quite some time. In 2008, he found himself auditioning for the hit series, Canadian Idol, where he made it to, just short of, the 'Top 20'. Then, a year later in 2009, Jordan wound up reuniting with former band mates and, well, long story short, The Color was on its way.
Most recently, on October 15th 2013, The Color released their newest EP. The EP, which is titled With Outlines, can be found on the band's official iTunes page.
So, if you have not stumbled upon The Color just yet, you definitely need to check them out immediately. As I have said, with Jordan Janzen's superb vocal skills, mixed with the bands amazing harmonies and overall sound, you get one heck of a fantastic band.
"In an industry steeped in easy answers and feel-good refrains, The Color now represents five musicians who've found their voice. Ready to make a mark across the soundscape of pop/rock music, The Color is bringing songs of hope, energy and greater purpose as they seek to bring a little color to the airwaves."
