Everything Turned To Color is the unlikely but serendipitous musical partnership between veteran songwriters Bryan and Kyle Weber and Neha Jiwrajka.
Graduates of New York University, brothers Bryan and Kyle began their musical careers as leaders of the Alternative Rock band ZELAZOWA, releasing three full-length albums, touring the world from 2006-2009, and founding the DIY tour booking website IndieOnTheMove.com.
Neha Jiwrajka (whose mother is a classically trained Hindustani singer) worked at tech giant Google in San Francisco, CA before leaving the company to pursue a masters degree in Jazz vocal performance at The New England Conservatory of Music. A classically trained pianist in her own right, Neha released her first solo record "The Dreamer" during her time in Boston, eventually relocating to NYC after graduation.
It was in the lobby of their Brooklyn apartment building that Bryan first met Neha. The chance encounter quickly turned into regular song workshopping sessions, which inevitably included Bryan's longtime songwriting partner Kyle on lead guitar.
In May of 2015, Bryan, Kyle, and Neha debuted as Everything Turned To Color at local DUMBO bar and music venue 68 Jay. Over the next two years, the trio of ex-Alt-Rock brothers and their classically trained neighbor toured up and down the northeast corridor time and time again, honing their Beatles meets Ella Fitzgerald-esque sound at notable venues including Lincoln Center, City Winery, Rockwood Music Hall, Caffe Lena, World Cafe Live, Club Passim, and Daryl's House, to name a few.
In June of 2016, the group entered ECR Music Studios in NYC to track its debut album with esteemed musician/producer and founder of #IRespectMusic, Blake Morgan. The acclaimed eleven song LP, entitled "Life Imagined", was released on June 23, 2017 in tandem with two sold-out performances at Rockwood Music Hall in NYC, and followed by successful tours of the west coast, northeast, and Midwest.
Says Mr. Morgan: “It’s rare that I’m hit this powerfully with new music–truly goose-bump inducing–and as a result, I’m not only a fan but completely sure that great things lie ahead for this band.”
Indeed they have. 2019 continues to draw rave reviews for the trio's evocative and fervent performances to sold-out crowds in New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. Of the band's ongoing residency in the Big Apple, New York Live Magazine writes: “Sublime, Ethereal, Heavenly…just a few of the adjectives that conjure up thoughts of this past Friday evening’s dazzling Everything Turned to Color performance.”
“We first heard about Everything Turned to Color from Auyon of Darlingside! And we are so happy for the recommendation because this group is something special. Fusing together the world's of jazz and folk, ETTC is a band you definitely want to get behind.”
— Sarah Craig, Caffe Lena Talent Buyer
“Everything Turned To Color paints landscapes of emotion. While creamy textures build, sweet lyricism flows like a wise river.”
“The songs, lush with harmony, strike a nearly impossible balance of playful melancholy.”
“What an amazing band. It’s like She and Him have found a seriousness that is often missing in pop music.”
“Deceptively simple, yet daringly catchy melodies.”
