Other Colors is a “future folk-rock” and “exploratory pop” trio from Baltimore comprised of songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Will Ryerson on guitar and vocals, Pat Berberich on bass guitar and vocals, and Dan Whatley on keyboard, guitar and vocals.
The band’s self-titled debut album was recorded at home by Ryerson in 2010 and released on Baltimore-based label Genpop in early 2011. A quick set of tightly crafted songs driven by infectious melodies, vocal harmonies and atmospheric lo-fi production, the recording has a classic feel while evoking a wide variety of musical reference points both old and new.
The band has just completed their second album “Free Thoughts”, and is currently looking for a label to release it. Recorded in Baltimore by engineer Dan Frome (Roomrunner), the new album features contributions from several notable local musicians, including Dave Jacober (Dope Body/Dan Deacon Ensemble) and Jenn Wasner (Wye Oak).
