This concert is Cancelled
Due to the COVID-19 virus we are sad to say we will be cancelling the concert for Colour Film. We apologize for any inconvenience and any tickets that were purchased will be reimbursed. Thank you for your understanding and support.
With songs that play like home movies rich in imagery and characters, Colour Film is the stage name of Hamilton, Ontario’s Matthew de Zoete. Mixing a storyteller’s eye for detail with melodic pop hooks, he takes snapshots of everyday life to illuminate the underlying threads. Imagine Nick Drake cheering up a bit and working with Beck.
Balancing sincerity and perspective, Colour Film’s lyrics open little windows onto wide vistas, shining a light on everything from old friends and new babies to waking up on the right side of the wrong bed.
From Canadian Beats:
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
I guess I’d call it melodic pop/folk music. I think my writing follows the style of pop and singer-songwriter music from the 60s and 70s and is influenced by those approaches. A few years ago, I realized that I often write songs with a visual element – some characters, a plot or situation, a specific setting, some details that hopefully bring the song alive in a listener’s mind. Almost like the song is a home movie in the mind’s eye. Sometimes it’s subconscious, sometimes it’s intentional, but it seems to be a recurring theme in how I write.
Tickets: $12/Advance $15/Door
