“Like a soft breeze wafting over a tropical Island, the music of Colour Quest stirs up feelings of warmth and happiness. In fact, the band’s name itself refers to a journey towards love and peace of all colours” – Elizabeth Yates
Colour Quest has captured audiences with their electric and high energy live performances since its 2000 inception in Brantford, Ontario.
Their music incorporates a unique blend of soulful vocals over a fusion of island beats, hints of R&B, soca, reggae and pop music; best described as Island Pop.
With their first self titled album Colour Quest slated for 2012, this band is breaking into the international music scene. The first single of this highly anticipated album ‘Spinning like a Carousel’ will be available to download on the band’s website colourquest.com and all major online music stores such as iTunes, CDBaby, Amazon, eMusic and many more.
Colour Quest’s success derives from the virtuosity and versatility of the band members and their musical backgrounds. Each member brings something unique to the table which is the crucial foundation to the identity of this unique band. The two founding members: Dion Simon (lead vocals) and CG Dillon (drums) were born and raised in Trinidad and Tobago where they played in a gospel band together. Omar Johnson (bass) comes from a highly talented musical family in Jamaica just like Evan Simms (keyboard) who also began his musical journey playing in church. Glenn Brown (guitar) was born and raised in Brantford, Ontario; as a result of Glenn’s upbringing, his exposure to rock, blues and jazz music is an essential part to the differentiation in Colour Quest’s original sound. In addition to performing at major festivals and events, Colour Quest opened up for great artists like Beres Hammond, Inner Circle, Richie Spice, Shurwayne Winchester, George Nooks, and many more. In 2007, the group wrote and recorded a song for the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) to be used for a bicycle safety DVD titled ‘Safe When Yu Ride’. This song was added to their EP Party Up, which was in rotation at various radio stations in Canada, Europe and the Caribbean.
