« Any Colour You Like » Volume 2 vient de paraître le 9 décembre 2016…un magnifique hommage-album reprenant les titres votés par les fans dans le précédent vol. + des titres favoris sélectionnés par Colin…avec une présentation soignée dans les moindres détails (photos inédites..interview…design) ce album est un objet d’Art à s’offrir ou à offrir en cette période festive..j’ai eu un coup au coeur en le découvrant en version « hardbook » avec ses 2 vinyls…comme j’aurai tant aimé que Colin le découvre aurait été si fier de son travail d’artiste.

Back to the future…….Your music is vibrant..touching…alive….so we must keep on playing..singing despite your painful absence…feel it hard again to think what happened at this beginning of the year…but for your memory…your Art legacy…we don’t feel down…you gave us so good memories on your music..during your gigs…you gave us more..your friendship through kind words..advices or just a gesture..i will feel always your hand in my back to reassure me when i showed you my drawing portrait…&  your little wave from Paris to me…you always gave me listening and smile that’s why i always trust in your you.

For long..for now..for the future..i will keep on sharing & breathing your lovely songs…Love you Colin & grateful thank you to your familly & Black team who keep on working..making alive your Art legacy….Karine x♡x

 BLACK FAITH "blind faith" make order and discover it...


 my little review on Amazon site…« Pure first class for « Blind Faith » the new Black aka Colin Vearncombe’s album…it’s a brillant work with a professionnal team (recorded and produced by Calum Malcolm) each song has its own character.. melancolic blooming, swinging curves, passionate tenderness, deep textures…we can fall in love i do :)
Since many years Colin composes, writes & put his voice and heart in beautiful and spellbinding melodies… »Blind Faith » is special because this is his first album where fans have participed to the process by pledging and it was a very good journey..i wish to « Blind Faith » now to fly away high and reach the chart!! i keep my fingers crossed..!!
