Editorial Reviews

2012 debut album from this unlikely duo. Often, the best ideas come when you rip up the rulebook and follow what feels good. Just ask Graffiti6. The pairing of producer TommyD and singer/songwriter Jamie Scott began three years ago as an experiment neither thought would work and has grown in a pop project so refreshingly rule-free a sense of adventure seeps from every song. Try to categorize Graffiti6 and you're in trouble. You'll certainly spot vintage Soul influences, the pair's shared love of Hendrix, Folk and Funk. You'll hear House and Hip Hop beats destined to fill dancefloors. At the heart of the songs are Pop melodies you could sit down with a guitar and strum. But Graffiti6 don't make music to be analyzed.

Graffiti6 is a new British duo comprised of singer/songwriter Jamie Scott and DJ/producer Tommy D. Although Scott is still relatively unknown, Tommy D is well-respected in his field and has worked with the likes of Jay-Z, Kanye West, 2Pac, and even Right Said Fred.

Yes, Tommy D produced Right Said Fred's 1992 smash hit single "I'm Too Sexy."

Although Jamie Scott may not have as impressive a resume as his partner, it won't be long before he and Graffiti6 are well known around the world.

Graffiti6's debut record, "Colours," has actually been available in the UK since late 2010, but with a U.S. tour supporting Augustana this year, the time has finally come for Graffiti6 to tag the U.S.

"Colours" opens up with "Stone In My Heart," an upbeat track driven by a ceaseless kick drum and meticulously harmonized verses which become the calling card of the band by the end of the album.

The best is yet to come, however. "Annie You Save Me" and "Stare Into the Sun" maintain the lead track's high energy while offering up even more memorable hooks.

The most impressive aspect of Graffiti6 is Scott's vocal work. With a distinctive distortion effect applied to his voice on nearly every track, Scott's voice seems to echo Vera Hall's "Troubles So Hard" which was famously sampled on Moby's "Natural Blues." The effect works brilliantly and gives songs like "Annie You Save Me," "Stare Into the Sun," and "Free" a throwback feel. Although "Colours" is a relatively straightforward rock album, Scott takes plenty of time to show off his vocal prowess.

On "Stop Mary," Scott's wails are reminiscent of Stevie Wonder while two tracks later, on "Over You," his whispered falsetto takes on a much more romantic modern R&B quality.

Colours is a great album, and I really do wish these Brits the best of luck in the States. With a debut like this they're sure to go far. Personally my favorite tracks are Stare Into The Sun, Over You, Free, and Annie You Save Me but as a whole "Colours" has quite the mix. All very heart felt and the lead singer's voice is one of it's kind and will swoon you away. Glad the album's finally out here!

I buy a lot of music (mostly alternative and indie) and this album is one of my 3 favorites of the year so far. As they used to say on American Bandstand - it has a great beat and you can dance to it. Even better, it's full of soul and is great to sing along with. If you can listen to "Free" without moving some part of your body, I think you might have a serious problem. It's a perfect pop song. There isn't a single bad track on the album. Don't just download the singles - get the whole thing!

I had the great chance to see Graffiti6 at the Doug Fir in Portland Oregon last month! Very Nice, and they sound as great Live as they do on this CD. It's the perfect background music for a nice day. I really enjoy this band!

I've been listening to music longer than I care to say and this is the most diverse, wonderfully-written and well-produced album--that manages to meld funk, R & B, soul, pop and rock--that I have heard since the heyday of Prince in the Eighties. I cannot recommend it highly enough! And the companion EP 'Free' is a must-have. Excellent!!

This is a very cool album. Graffiti6 (to my ear) has kind of a 60s retro synth pop sound- I heard a few hooks that were reminiscent of some of the newer stuff from Moby- hell I don't know how to describe it. I heard "Stare Into The Sun" on local radio and decided to sample some clips here on Amazon. Not a bad song on the album. If you like catchy pop hooks over electronic keyboards and harmonies, give "Colours" a listen.

If you haven't heard these guys yet then you are in for a pleasant surprise. I bought it primarily for one song--Free but the whole album is pretty good. I don't understand why they are not more popular in the US.

Kinda late for a review because I've had it for many months but this is a fantastic CD with a great collection of music. Listened to it over and over while I was painting my bedroom, so it was a quiet time to really listen closely. Love their work.
