Prolific underground neo-soul giant Colonel Red’s take on future soul music
Prolific underground neo-soul giant Colonel Red’s take on future soul music is a spiritual journey of melody vibe and meaning created by the instrumentation of his voice and the forward-thinking production values of the music. His unmistakeable vocal sound and lyrical prowess have caught the attention of audiences & DJ’s worldwide including Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio1 Worldwide), Norman Jay (Good Times) and Benji B (1XTRA) to name a few.
The very first release on his own label, the ‘Roaming Lion EP’ is a glorious down-tempo groove with mixes by DJ Mitsu the Beats, C.O.N.E & Ballentyne offering up sumptuous interpretations of the walking poetry Colonel Red delivers. Lyrics like “We are the kings of our minds but our hearts must triumph if we are to pave the way”, comments on the need for faith in modern times while the title song cries out a hopeful & positive message “Divine light, hold tight and if you’re alright, we will take our time in this life sublime”.
