Featured Musician: The Colourist

October 29, 2010

After their band practice, I was able to chat with The Colourist. They recently played at our Fall Tour/Season Seven Launch Party and their drummer, Maya, is the director of the TV series here at Roadtrip Nation!

I’m not gonna lie, I was surprisingly nervous for this one. Maybe I was just worried that they weren’t going to open up all that much, but as you can see in their interview, it went SO well!



Lately, I’ve really been struggling with how to identify passion. How do you know whether it’s just a surface-level interest or a true passion? I asked The Colourist this and Justin’s answer really hit home. He said that music is the only thing that has ever, and continues to, give him the chills. 

And that got me thinking: what gives me the chills? I don’t think I can say that any one thing gives me the chills. But when I play drums, everything and everyone around me instantly disappears and I’m in my own world. And the only time that ever happens to me is when I’m playing drums. So, maybe that’s along the same lines? 

Also, something Adam said stuck out to me. He said that whenever he’s doing anything else but music, he’s always thinking about playing music. Well, now that sounds familiar! Lately, I’ve been going to sleep and waking up thinking about drums, and throughout the day, it’s hard for me to concentrate knowing that my sticks are waiting for me at home.

Overall, this interview really helped clear my head and answered a lot of the questions I had about my future and about pursuing music.
