Featuring a broad array of songs and styles, STRAY is Colin's newest album where Colin takes on the new role of kit drummer as well as his usual instrumental and vocal duties, and also features a guest drumming performance by Paul Fairlie on a tune.
Colin's first post-Another 1000 Miles CD is a refreshing hybrid of his classic rock sensibilities and the possibilities of modern loop based production, with vintage guitars and layered beats usually reserved for more techno oriented stuff often sharing the sonic stage. It features guest appearances by Richard Trevor Williams, Mark Kuntsi, Bruce Russell, Deborah Tihanyi, Steve Mitchell, Paul Fairlie and Kevin Unruh
The 3rd album by ANOTHER 1000 MILES contains a song cycle based on the elements and the 8 traditional celebrations of the Celtic Wheel of the Year, with songs and sound collages taking the listener through the whole year, exploring the connections of the natural and the spiritual. ANOTHER 1000 MILES consisted of Mark Kuntsi, Colin Halyk and Malcolm Xerxes™.
The second album by ANOTHER 1000 MILES is perhaps their best effort as a group, with Mark stepping to the mic for numerous songs as well as Colin, and Malcolm having a special spoken word feature on a track as well. The band widen the more power pop oriented sound of their debut to include the acoustic vein opened up at intimate shows between the 2 albums as well.
