Mixes beautiful craftsmanship with a message of healing that is all the more appropriate in these difficult times.

Pontus de Wolfe is a producer, artist, and music curator from Sweden. The Color Red is a collaboration with Ten Music Group recording artist Tova Strandell, and latest single "The Door" is a contemporary take on the classic singer-songwriter vibe, recorded with a full live band.

The organic sound of this acoustic folk-drenched track immediately brings to mind the heyday of Laurel Canyon retro-pop, mixing the melodic immediacy of Carole King with orchestral elements worthy of Brian Wilson. A modern production polish immediately evokes the sense of intimacy and honest emotion, as "The Door" mixes beautiful craftsmanship with a message of healing that is all the more appropriate in these difficult times. Tova Strandell, of The Strandels, contributes a warm vibrato and stunning vocal presence in her duet with Pontus de Wolfe, along with a welcome moment of hope and positive thinking.

THE COLOR RED is a project founded by Stockholm-based artist Pontus de Wolfe, who is also the creative head of the jazz network JAZZAGENTUREN.
