Brian Hyland

Brian was born November 12, 1943, in Brooklyn/Queens, New York City, where his first musical experience ranged from church choir at nine, to clarinet and guitar, to his first local harmony group, the Delfis. In 1959, they cut a demo record and made the rounds of New York City record labels. Finally, with much persistence, after many closed doors, Brian was signed as a solo artist to a management contract, where he cut demos for band leader Sammy Kaye's publishing company. Kapp Records heard a demo and signed Brian at age 16.

Colorama's debut album Cookie Zoo has already had a Japan release to giddy critical acclaim, and their newly released first single, 'Sound' is an instant psych pop classic - a perfect introduction into a sonic world you won't wanna leave.
