- Colour of London
For several months, people have been asking us about our name, what inspired it, and why we chose it. In the time since we started the band, it has taken on a number of meanings but there is a definite theme that represents our music, mission, and purpose:
“Colour of London” is a metaphor and representation of the idea that “there is beauty in everything.”
“COLOUR” = Life, love, beauty, strength, all things positive, passionate, motivating, or inspired.
“LONDON”= Jimmie’s favorite city. It is filled with history, the scenery is breathtaking, the fashion is cutting edge, and it has played muse to some our favorite music from the likes of the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, the Police, Queen, and Coldplay…just to name a few.
Despite the perception that the sun is seldom seen and it’s generally rain-soaked, the city radiates beauty and people travel from all over the world to experience all that London has to offer.
To us, this is a constant reminder that no matter how cloudy or overcast things in life may seem, we can stay positive and motivated. There is always a lesson to be learned. We can love through pain. There is beauty in everything when you really look long enough to find it.
