Colour Film

April 18 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

- $12

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
