Overall Album Vibe:

Derek Stroker has been around for awhile, starting with his 2005 ‘Acoustic’ EP. He lived in Nashville for five years honing his skills before recently returning to his roots in Orlando. His new eleven track release, ‘Love & Colour,’ showcases some of that musical growth with its collection of soulful contemporary music. I also liked the well place use of horns and keyboard parts that are found on many of his songs.

Album highlights include the opener, “Blue Skies,” a song about having one of those moments in your life where you wish it could last forever. “Slow Motion,” deals with not living your life always spinning your wheels and getting nowhere in life. Taking the time to slow down and get yourself pointed in the right direction. “Last Dance,” is a melodic song that makes good use of the organ found on it. The song deals with not blowing the second chance at love when you’re lucky enough to get one. “The End,” is another love based song that is the main theme found in many of the songs that make up ‘Love & Colour.’

Review Tagline: On his latest release, ‘Love & Colour, ‘ Derek Stroker showcases his soulful sound.

Standout Tracks: “Blue Skies”, “Slow Motion”, “Last Dance”, “The End”,
