The Colourful Band‏

Biography

Starting in Glasgow as guitarist and songwriter in Delay playing student unions and small venues around the city Ian McKelvie moved east after graduation to look for work in Fife and thence to the fair city of Edinburgh. Here the indie folk music aswell as the unique atmosphere of the city moved things in a more acoustic direction. On a visit to New York a memorable night was also had at CB’s lounge (CBGB) involving a short set followed by an drunken but hopefully interesting rendition of Brown Sugar with The Bowery Boys. It a shame they closed the place down. Having just returned from a six month trip across Australia, Japan, New Zealand, the latest project is a 7 track EP recorded back home in Glasgow at Chem19 studios with engineer/producer Mr Andy Miller (Life Without Buildings, The Fratellis, My Latest Novel, Sons and Daughters, De Rosa) The Colourful EP features solo acoustic songs as well as fuller sounding tracks thanks to contributions from the talented ensemble of !
friends and wonderful people known as The Colourful Band. Released on 8th March 2009, on vetrecords. New material is to be recorded and hopefully released during 2010. Thankyou for reading.
