12 July 2011 – I worked with Colin Pollock a few weeks ago and I was really excited about this because he sent me a few teaser tracks of the new stuff he had been working on and it sounded incredible.
I don’t know how to play any instruments and will never vouch to be a musician but I have worked with enough artists over the years to be able to spot the difference between what is good and what isn’t (I would like to think so at least). Colin is an amazing guitarist who really concentrates on his guitar tones and has great vocals to lay on top.
We met up at the studio and he showed me his toys and played me a few tracks which definitely got my foot tapping. I never really compare musicians but he expelled a lot of the sound I love about Dire Straights and it was a pleasure to just sit back and take it all in.
We shot a few portraits in the rain and I really like the way they came out … I think they give a good feel of what Colin is about.
Look out for him … or don’t … either way I think you will be hearing more about him soon.
