About Mel (of Colour)
With roots that extend downward into rich musical soil, Colour is growing quickly and ripe for bloom. From the small town of Lynchburg, VA, talented vocalist/ multi-instrumentalist Melissa Dalrymple began writing and performing at a very young age. Melissa's voice has been notably compared to Leigh Nash, Lisa Hannigan, and Karin Bergquist. She met Tim Dalrymple (drummer/producer) in 2003 while traveling and playing music on the east coast, and they connected in a unique way, resulting in a marriage of musical ingenuity. Joined by Kris Luis (bass guitar) and Logan Coats (lead guitar/ trumpet) in 2007, the four developed a unique sound and have been traveling the west coast based out of Central California, promoting their self-produced and well received 2008 release, The Grey EP, and 2009 release, Deep Oceans & Blue Skies. As a loyal fan base continues to rapidly grow and touring opportunity seems to keep knocking, future is propelling them forward with great anticipation.
