“It’s pretty safe to say that everyone is enveloped in a ‘mercury in retrograde’ funk at the moment, so what better way to indulge your emotions than hitting play on the dark and soothing melodies of TheColorGrey?” – Wonderland
TheColorGrey is a multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer. Born Will Michiels in 1994, the Belgo-Congolese Grey released a self produced EP ‘Do The Right Thing’ and a music video for ‘Sins’ which stirred up tastmakers and music industry interest early 2016.
Signed to Warner Music, Grey’s debut album ‘Rebelation’, including radio singles On & On and Need To Know and collabs with Washington DC rapper Oddissee and fellow Belgian MC Darrell Cole, appeared in 2017 with a sound that evoked classic R&B and soul.
In 2017 Grey dropped a 5 track EP ‘In Between Phases’ and only one year later an 8 track EP ‘For What Its Worth’, including radio singles ‘Swerve’ and ‘You Got To Show’.
Recently TheColorGrey collaborated with childhood friend and Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku and released a track called ‘New Levels’, which tells the story of their tough upbringing and rise to stardom.
TheColorGrey has become an established name in the Benelux and already gathered over 10 millions streams while reaching the Viral Top 50 charts in numerous countries. Carrying a strong live reputation with his band, TheColorGrey sells out 800cap venues throughout the Benelux and is ready to rise and shine on the international stage as well. He’s currently working on a new album, set for release in spring 2020.
Grey’s raps combine a tight flow with smooth, laidback vibes, soulful beats and thoughtful lyrics. His self-produced music is a very personal blend of hip hop, new soul, blue jazz, cool r&b and urban pop, with striking melodies that often harbor slightly dark or melancholic undertones.
