Brian Hazard aka Color Theory is originally from California, where during his young adolescence he formed part of his high school’s Jazz band as their pianist. He carried this interest in piano performance into his college studies, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Music Degree in piano performance. Speaking on his current work, Color theory creates a nostalgic synthwave atmosphere, with lyrics of an ambiguous nature that leaves the listener deciding on their own personalized meaning of the song.
Brian finds inspiration in the ominous tone of 80’s musicians like Depeche Mode and The Cure, as well as current act Baths appealing, and adopts this influence in the style he creates called “melancholy synthwave”. However, his sound sits much closer to acts like Kavinsky, The Midnight and Gunship.
