Pittsburgh was named in honor of British statesman William Pitt in 1758. Now 260 years later Pittsburg is honored by the band The Harvest Color and their latest effort Turn To Blue. The Harvest Colour blends characteristics of acoustic songwriting with modern progressive rock, trying to creating a refreshing and unique sonic environment. The group formed in the fall of 2015, when front man Gabe Mangold had written several songs that weren’t appropriate for his metal band Delusions Of Grandeur.
Mangold had known and performed with his good friends Ron Rekowski (bass) and Paul Campbell (percussion) for several years prior and asked them to join his new musical endeavor, feeling that they would be the perfect fit. The musicians soon created a dark, emotional, broody sound and the lyrical from Mangold speaks of heartbreak, dissatisfaction with life, avarice, death, and more.
About The Turn To Blue Marigold states, «We want to make people feel something, as that’s what good music does, invoke emotion. I do my best to sonically depict what I’m feeling, and to have these feelings reflect on the listener in an accessible, relatable fashion».
