About

Label: Indie

Bio: Graham Colton
Lonely Ones

“I’m not the same guy.”

That’s certainly an understatement for Graham Colton. After a major label career, numerous TV appearances and the limiting musical peg of “singer-songwriter,” Colton has gone through a complete reinvention on his new album Lonely Ones.

    Graham Colton - Alexander Webb Saturday 11/08/2014 7:00 PM |21+ Nearly five years since his break with major label Universal Music -- a relationship that spanned four years, two albums and saw Graham Colton perform on The Tonight Show, The Late Show, debut videos on TRL and more Coltons new album Lonely Ones marks a huge leap forward, seeing him move away from his singer-songwriter past and into an entirely different direction. After reconnecting with himself as an artist outside the world of major label influence, Colton began collaborating with good friend and fellow Oklahoma City musician Wayne Coyne and The Flaming Lips. Coyne inspired him to experiment and change the way he looked at the songwriting process. Wayne loaned me some keyboards and told me to push buttons and songs would appear, said Colton. And they did! It's amazing what happened when I put the guitar down. Colton holed up at Blackwatch Studios in Norman, OK with producers/ bandmates Chad Copelin & Jarod Evans for 18 months to write and record the album. They enlisted Steven Drozd (Flaming Lips) to aide in the early recordings and offer new textures and sounds that Colton wouldn't otherwise use. The result is ten tracks of lush indie/psych pop gems, each with its own interesting twist. Playful touches like handclaps and la-la-las accent ear-wormy melodies. As the follow-up to 2010s Pacific Coast Eyes and 2008s Twenty Something EP, Lonely Ones shows not just growth but almost complete reinvention an exciting move for an artist who has already seen his share of commercial success.
