Orange County, CA natives Maya Tuttle and Adam Castilla began playing together as the group Paper Thin Walls but changed their name to the Colourist in 2009 after adding Kollin Johannsen and Justin Wagner to the lineup. The newfound act started to hone their craft and discover their sound while performing local shows together. After playing residencies in Orange County and Los Angeles, the band attracted attention from major label execs and signed with Universal Republic Records. Since then the Colourist has released their popular self-titled debut -- which reached a Top 20 spot on the Billboard Top Alternative Albums chart -- made major festival appearances at SXSW and Coachella, and toured alongside The Naked and Famous, Fitz & the Tantrums, and Metric. The Colourist has ticket buyers coming out in droves when they showcase their infectious collection of pop-rock tunes on their high-octane tours.
