About Coleman Hell
Genre-mingling singer, songwriter and producer, Coleman Hell, is releasing his debut album, Summerland, on October 14th. With the 12-track album, Coleman keeps a promise he made to himself to remain unconventional among the cookie-cutter trail of dance pop imitators. The stirring debut album mixes Coleman’s boundary-pushing musical instincts with telling verses that go beyond dance-floor introspection.
“I remember watching this documentary on Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Darkness On The Edge Of Town’ and how he felt he had gotten away from his roots, away from the things that made him who he was in the first place,” says Coleman. “I really related to that.” The always-curious artist then set out to find inspiration in a locale that even surprised him: A return home to Thunder Bay, Ontario, where he grew up prior to – as he puts it – “running away” to Toronto nearly a decade ago. “I wanted to re-embrace that life, those great summers I remembered, and also get in touch with some of the music that influenced me at that time.”
He ventured out on a cabin retreat for a month-and-a -half to revisit the past and ‘vibe’ on the more intangible workings of Summerland. Him and his collaborators would build bonfires, go fishing, party, and rekindle the memories they shared before heading out all those years ago. “For me this cabin and going back there to reconnect for this album was kind of my Summerland.”
Coleman Hell caught people’s attention last year with his breakout hit “2 Heads”, which has been streamed over 100 Million times across different platforms and is certified Triple Platinum in Canada. His follow-up single, “Fireproof”, was released in the Spring and has already gone Gold as it continues to make its way up the Canadian radio charts. Coleman has crafted a unique musical style, incorporating elements of folk, rock, dance and pop and fusing electronic music with organic instrumentation. He was recently nominated for Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the 2016 Juno Awards in addition to receiving 3 iHeartRadio MMVA nominations.
