Knoxville native draws from life in Africa, California, and his roots in the South on debut solo project

LOS ANGELES, CALIF. -On the heels of his annual, three-month trip to Mozambique, Brock Human releases his first full-length solo album Tuesday, November 8, 2011. Brock’s passion for music and those who inspire him to create it can be heard through the deeply emotional, cinematic sound that permeates Color of Red.  Personal, authentic

expressions of prayer, as in the title track Color of Red, are punctuated by soulful, emotive anthems like World in Motion and Runaway. Brock’s life has been a journey of purpose and destiny that is woven into every track on Color of Red, and the listener is at once caught up in that journey.

Much of the inspiration for this album has come from Brock’s time in Africa.  Inspiring more than rhythms and visual language, Mozambique is a nation that has awakened a passion in Brock to see the resourced world, in which he was raised, connect with the third world.  A producer himself, Brock works every year with native musicians while in Africa, fully producing their music stateside and releasing the albums to generate profit for the people of Mozambique.

With six iTunes chart-topping albums under his belt, Brock Human is excited to be releasing his first solo album reflecting his personal voice.  Color of Red was created in collaboration with Daniel Aguilar (Mixer, I-58 Studios), Tom Baker (Mastering, Grammy Award Winner), and Jason Borneman (co-producer).  The album will be available on iTunes.

Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
