Singer/songwriter Michael Colton has returned with the release of a brand new single that takes his steadfast country rock/blues sound to new heights. Titled “A Little Crazy,” it’s an exhilarating track that both figurately evokes letting loose and enjoying the ride, and literally signals a pivot out of his comfort zone as he embraces a new direction in his songwriting.
Having garnered significant accolades for his more country inflected work in the past, Colton has streamlined his sound which seamlessly blends rock and blues traditions and is anchored by his striking vocals and magnificent guitar chops. Produced by noted film and television composer/producer Brett Boyett, “A Little Crazy” features Colton on vocals and guitar. Producer Brett Boyett brought a groups of studio musicians to round out the production. Song will be available digitally on November 15th and an EP will be released in the coming year.
Says Colton: “I realize that the best times in my life came from the little moments of jumping off the beaten path. When you jump away from all the normal stuff and follow the weird little voice in your gut sometimes it’s a trainwreck. BUT to make a song or really anything in life great you have to let go, follow that thing you were told was wrong. Be free of everything.
The big difference between this and my past music is that I always had a firm hand in the production. This time I let go and gave producer Brett Boyett a lot of freedom. He kept me focused on the story and took my singing, guitar playing and songwriting to a whole new level.”
