New Release: Colonel Red – ‘Keep Walkin’


London based Colonel Red has just released Keep Walkin on Tokyo Dawn Records and it’s sounding pretty awesome, folks. Taking a departure from the electronic sounds of his earlier work, this album is jazzy, soulful, and funky. Red’s voice holds a soothing, entrancing quality which just glides you through each song. The mixture of moods and grooves is also appreciated. Take a listen below and hear for yourself!
