"Release of The Color Of Things"

"Local music on the hour, by request that was Black Tie Optional, great new local band coming up on the scene, that song is called the Color Of Things. I must admit I am a fan myself so check out their myspace, if you don't you will be missing out." - 105.3 WFIV


The Color of Things *Air Play on 105.3 WVLT"

Feeling a bit camera shy


Our music brings together the genres of the Blues, funk, and rock accompanied with high energy drumming. Our influences range from Stevie Ray Vaughan, to Incubus, Kings of Leon, Robert Johnson, Tool, Parliament, John Mayer, Hendrix and a wide assortment of jazz and R&B artists. This combines to form a unique sound going in a direction opposite of where rock has been going, to create a sound enjoyable to all, both rock and pop lovers alike. The members of Black Tie Optional came together as older projects subsided, With William and Matt playing acoustic shows while looking for a drummer and bassist, which they found in Steven and Brent. After some shows Cody was brought into the group to add depth and color to the band. We are now being heard on 105.3 WFIV in Knoxville, TN, and will soon be on 90.3 WUTK in Knoxville as well. We are currently recording our first EP and are also working on a music video for our single "The Color of Things".
