Music for your mind’s eye. With songs that play like home movies rich in imagery, Colour Film is the stage name of Hamilton, Ontario’s Matthew de Zoete. The moniker embodies his idea of songs as little films, wherein a combination of characters, stories, and emotions create a visual element in the listener’s mind.
Since 2006, de Zoete (pronounced “duh-ZOO-tuh”) has released three albums under his own name and toured extensively throughout North America and Europe. He has shared the stage with acts such as Serena Ryder, Great Lake Swimmers, and Whitehorse, and he’s performed at festivals including North by Northeast, Canadian Music Week, JUNOfest, Super Crawl, and Stukafest (Netherlands).
The Colour Film in partnership with Shawn & Ed Brewing’s 2018 PaddleShed Music Series will be kicking off this concert series on June 16 at The Shed with an intimate show that you will not want to miss.
