If you like 80s synthpop, Depeche Mode or anything like that, check out this song contributed by Color Theory.
Here is a little bit about the track and it’s author and the man behind Color Theory, Brian Hazard.
Brian was literally the second artist to contribute to our Rise Against STIGMA & SUICIDE organic online compilation. He was one of our very early supporters, and he contributed this track to our organization without delay. We appreciate the support that Brian has shown us and want to personally thank him for the smile he brought to my face by showing me a picture of his beautiful family. It feels really good to have someone like Brian get behind you and your mission. I am happy to call this guy a friend, even if we have never met and have only talked a few times.
I have to say though, as a former guitarist and musician/song-writer… I have MIDI envy.
80’s synthpop is in Brian Hazard’s blood, but he mostly listens to Electronic Dance Music these days. His distinctive brand of literary dance pop draws from both, fleshed out with rich piano voicings. Anyone who took music lessons as a kid calls themselves “classically trained,” but Hazard went the distance, earning a Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance. Immediately after graduation, he left Beethoven and Brahms behind to pursue his first musical inspiration, Depeche Mode.
Career highlights include winning the Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, two songs in the hit video game Rock Band, and several song placements on MTV’s The Real World. Hazard is currently working on his 9th full-length Color Theory album, scheduled for 2016. “The Light Inside” is the closing track.
