Colourshop is a singer-songrwriter one-man band. Italian born, London based, Alfredo Salvati moved his first steps in the music world at the age of 10. He took his chances 10 years ago when he moved from Rome hills to London.
Drawing on influences from the folky harmonies of Neil Young to the honest storytelling of Tracy Chapman, and mixing these with cinematic pedal effects, Colourshop is creating a sound that blends masterfully gentle guitar, melody and rhyme into a soundtrack of poignant millennial longing.
In 2014 his song “You & Me” has been pitched and aired by Mark Forrest on BBC Introducing.
Overall Colourshop music has overcome 3 million streams only on Spotify platform.
In March 2019 he has taken part in the Kronplatz Ski Music Festival supporting Tom Walker European tour.
In July and August he has been touring California for more than 20 concerts.
The new single Dear Friend, a great new production from Jason Boshoff (David Gray, Lisa Hanningan), has been released on the 6th of February 2021 across all the streaming platforms together with an interesting video clip.
