"Meet The Color You"

Today we’d like to introduce you to The Color You.

Thanks for sharing your story with us . So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
After forming several bands throughout the years, The Color You started to slowly come together. Michael, Mike and our good friend Ever started out as a three-piece band. After a few months of getting our chemistry down, we felt the need for an additional guitar.

With that, we decided to ask Albert, who was previously part of Project AMEE along with Michael, Eduardo, and Ever. Albert caught up to speed pretty quick and brought the leads we were hoping for. Then Ever made the choice to leave the band for his own personal reasons which opened up the door for Eduardo, thus our final lineup was set.

After practicing for so long and getting down a decent setlist, we decided it was time to start trying to gig our first show and on December 16th, it happened. That night jump started our momentum going forward. Since then we started playing one show per month, a goal we set for ourselves. One show per month turned into two, then three.

Our ticket sales were consistently on the rise and our invites to play venues were starting to pick up as well.

Has it been a smooth road?
We’ve had a few bumps. Again one being losing Ever. It was so all of a sudden that we were definitely not prepared for it. Plus him being a bassist, it hurt us a lot. Luckily we had Eduardo, who wasn’t even a bass player by the way, ready and willing.

Another obstacle would be finding our first gig. It’s always tough when you’re starting out as a new band. No call backs, no email responses, venues wanting EPK’s, gig experience and crowds. So yeah it was frustrating in the beginning but after the first show, it was all full steam ahead and we haven’t looked back since.

We’d love to hear more about your Music.
Our music is something that connects people. Not just to us but to each other. The lyrics aren’t just stories, they are experiences that we’ve been through and they are experiences that just about everyone has been through. Even with our name, we wanted to generate positive energy. We look at the name The Color You as a universal symbol. It represents everyone and everything that we all go through and that’s something that we can say that we’re proud of. That’s something we wear on our sleeves.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
It’s a bit tough to start out here in the DFW area. Not only are there many bands wanting the same thing but venues always want to sell, but that’s any city. The best thing that we’ve noticed about the city is the camaraderie among fellow bands, we all may be going for the same thing, but we all realize that we can’t do it alone. Cross promoting and hooking each other up with shows is something that has gotten us to where we are now.
