The Colourist first stumbled upon one another in an underused warehouse in Orange County, CA, where Adam and Maya discovered the harmonic chemistry that has come to define the band's bright and anthemic signature sound.
The Colourist began 2013 holed up in a small studio in Southern California. It's there that Adam Castilla (vocals, guitar), Maya Tuttle (drums, vocals), Kollin Johannsen (guitar, bass), and Justin Wagner (bass, keys) committed their pop-fueled, indie-bred rock to tape before embarking on their first tour which included appearances at Coachella along with support shows with Metric and Atlas Genius.
In late August the band released their first recorded music into the world with an EP called Lido. The 4 songs represent a sampling of this band's ability to write smart, engaging songs laced with hooks that leave you wanting more. The band toured the country as direct support to The Naked and Famous in support of the Lido EP and are now preparing for the release of their first full length album due Spring of 2014.
