ISLAND-BORN solo artist, Greg Barnes, has released his fresh new single, Colour Blind ­— championing the philosophy that you should view life the way you want it.

A former student of Platform One, Greg, from Ventnor, has been toiling away on his new EP for the last few years, and his new single ­— Colour Blind ­— is the figurative starter before the main course.

"Colour Blind is about seeing life how you want it, basically. Even if you can't see it clearly," said Greg.

"The EP is about how life has its ups and downs, and how you should be positive, and see the good side.

"Just smile ­— because a simple lift of the lips can make your life seem a whole lot brighter."

Greg released his first EP, Early Summer, in 2016, and has gone on to garner a notable following, establishing himself as a solo artist, and gigging at festivals and venues across the UK.

His new EP, Just Smile, is set for release in April, produced by Stuart Heath's Hungry Hound Productions, and co-written by Jack Hall of Sexy Pretty Things.
