SXSW: Graham Colton

Catchy adult contemporary pop

I remember the exact place and circumstances under which I bought "Dizzy Up the Girl," so when I say Graham Colton could and should be opening for the Goo Goo Dolls, know that I mean it in the best way possible. Still, there are people who are currently running for the hills after that sentence, as some people find adult contemporary pop to be everything they're fighting against. No matter. Leave if you must.

"It's emotive. I'm emoting," Colton said from the stage, explaining his newest tunes. No way to better explain it than that. He knows how to work the adult contemporary pop sound, from the guitar settings to the lyrics to the song structures to the emotions. He knows his stuff, and he delivered a solid set to very appreciative fans. His new album comes out April 5, and he's doing an April 2 CD release at VZD's (one of the first bands to namecheck something in Oklahoma from the stage that wasn't the Thunder!).

If you're a fan of Colton's previous work, you're going to love his new stuff. It's catchy as all get out, especially "1981." Look for his new album "Pacific Coast Eyes" soon.

Sooner the Sunset — Sooner the Sunset


Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma City’s own Graham Colton is one of the most formidable solo artists the Sooner state has to offer, and he’s even more impressive as half of the new duo Sooner the Sunset, having found his musical soul mate in vocalist Lindsey Ray.
