Race has been a pretty popular subject in contemporary music lately, and there isn’t any reason to wonder why. Everywhere we look in today’s modern media, the subject of America’s struggle to find equality and civility among all of her people is impossible to escape.
Countrified singer/songwriter R.W. Roldan wanted to contribute his own verse to the ongoing fight for civil rights in the form of an acoustic song, and that track arrives in the blistering ballad “The Color Of”, a single that is so fluently designed and executed that even the most hard nosed of cynics will find it difficult to resist its potent message of peace.
“The Color Of” is driven by its carefully crafted lyrics, but its music is just as hauntingly moving. Roldan picks away dexterously at his acoustic guitar, dispatching a litany of colorful notes that intertwine with each other like lovers consummating their romance.
