Latest news » John Metcalfe 'The Appearance of Colour' released June 8th
"This is my most rigorous album to date. It's music of big contrasts but sonically unified with the intention to create a complete album with an intense emotional arc." - John Metcalfe
Composer, producer, classical violist, guitarist, pioneering A&R man, and arranger to A-list pop stars, John Metcalfe has always been a name worth seeking out. Part of seminal Manchester band The Durutti Column, he then set up the Factory Classical label and has subsequently not only released his own solo albums but worked as an arranger for a host of artists such as Morrissey, The Pretenders, Blur, Coldplay and not least Peter Gabriel on his 'Scratch My Back' and 'New Blood' albums.
'The Appearance of Colour' presents Metcalfe as a solo recording artist - as front man, maestro and manipulator of sounds.
