Composer, producer, classical violist, guitarist, pioneering A+R man, and arranger to A-list pop stars, John Metcalfe has always been a name worth seeking out, however small the print.
Even when he is working in the background, as an arranger for the Pretenders, Peter Gabriel or Blur, his contributions are always special. His ear for timbre and his instinct for musical drama make him a good collaborator - empathetic but never unassuming.
The Appearance of Colour is John Metcalfe's mark in the sand. "This is me on my own, and there's nothing between me and the audience. It's my efforts, it's my emotions, it's my sensibilities on display."
The Appearance of Colour is Metcalfe's fourth album under his own name, and follows A Darker Sunset (Big Chill, 2008), Scorching Bay (Black Box, 2004) and The Inner Line (Black Box, 2000).
