TheColorGrey is a multi-talented singer, songwriter and producer. Born Will Michiels in 1994, the Belgo-Congolese Grey released a self-produced EP ‘Do The Right Thing’ and a music video for ‘Sins’ which stirred up tastemakers and music industry interest early 2016.
Signed to Warner Music, Grey’s debut album ‘Rebelation’, including radio singles On & On and Need To Know and collabs with Washington DC rapper Oddissee and fellow Belgian MC Darrell Cole, appeared in 2017 with a sound that evoked classic R&B and soul.
Recently TheColorGrey collaborated with childhood friend and Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku to release a track called ‘New Levels’, which tells the story of their tough upbringing and rise to stardom.
TheColorGrey has become an established name in the Benelux and already gathered over 10 millions streams while reaching the Viral Top 50 charts in numerous countries. Carrying a strong live reputation with his band, TheColorGrey sells out 800 cap venues throughout the Benelux and is ready to rise and shine on the international stage as well.
TheColorGrey is currently working on a new album, set for release in spring 2020. He just released a new single 'Nothing At All', recorded for the first time with his live band.
Grey's raps combine a tight flow with smooth, laidback vibes, soulful beats and thoughtful lyrics. His self-produced music is a very personal blend of hip hop, new soul, blue jazz, r&b and urban pop, with striking melodies that often harbor slightly dark or melancholic undertones.
People aren’t black or white, they are grey. There is always good in bad and the other way round. - TheColorGrey
