LA's Michael Colton Premiere's Blues Rock Jam "Fever Dream"

The past is all too present on “Fever Dream,” the swinging country rock reflection on good love gone bad offered by singer/ songwriter and guitarist Michael Colton. According to, Colton “has depth, warmth, and grit - and he can play the hell out of his guitar.” Produced by Marty Rifkin (Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty) and Steve Trovato, Colton’s upcoming release, California Blue, will display Colton’s blend of storytelling, straightforward tunefulness, and incendiary guitar work. Colton’s recent live appearances include SXSW, The Sundance Film Festival, and Los Angeles’ House of Blues.

Colton started out as a cocky guitar upstart, diving deep into the explosive traditions of virtuosos Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. Exploring that music led him further down that road, all the way to blues legend Robert Johnson. Colton went on to record an EP of Johnson’s songs, the critically acclaimed The Robert Johnson Sessions.

After paying his dues in countless bars and coffee houses, Colton had a career-altering encounter with acclaimed producer Blake English (George Benson, Jennifer Lopez) at an informal studio jam. Impressed by Colton’s chops, English recruited Colton for session work and eventually produced The Robert Johnson Sessions.
