Fragile Colours is the nom de plume of choice for Bay of Plenty based writer and producer, Tim Julian. He has recorded and produced albums for many Tauranga artists in his busy Colour Field Recording Studio since 1998, as well as helping with arrangement and song writing on some projects. His main instrument is piano and he has supplied keyboard textures for numerous local acts, his bass tracks have also graced a collection of recordings.
Fragile Colours saw its first release in 2015, the epic Southern Utopia album - a collection of songs with co-writer Fred Renata that reflect on New Zealand’s place in the world. Previously he has written songs for X-Factor contestant, Leilani Taula on her debut album, Sometimes.
Tim sees the Fragile Colours project as a collective of local talent drawing on different styles and moods, not to mention personnel. Upcoming recordings include an album of songs written for upcoming local talent, Kamaea and an instrumental collection with Brilleaux/Tuner bassist Brian Franks.
Both Southern Utopia and Sometimes are available for download on iTunes and many more digital platforms, plus streaming from Spotify.
