About A Simple Colony
A Simple Colony is a collaboration between singer/lyricist Michael Dodson (Portland Gay Men's Chorus) and guitarist/composer Lara Michell (the Stolen Sweets, Dirty Martini). Together they create introspective and slightly unconventional pop-rock songs with lush and layered vocals. The band performs as an acoustic duo or as a quintet including Nancy Hess on bass and vocals (Stereovision), Rebecca Sanborn on keys (Blue Cranes, Swansea) and Ned Failing on drums (Dirty Martini, Mexican Gunfight).
The band's new album, Make It Start, is a musical journey that weaves different sonic elements together: part acoustic, part electronic, featuring tracks with a straight-ahead rock band approach of guitars/bass/drums as well as strikingly angular offerings which include atmospheric keyboards and swirling beats.Map & Directions
