The Voice Winner Javier Colon Earns Raves for New Concord CD ‘Gravity'; Coverage Includes Extra TV, Entertainment Weekly, TV Guide, HuffPost, Elmore & more, as Colon Makes a Return Visit to The Voice on NBC-TV, & U.S. Tour Continues

AXS: "He sounds fantastic"
"...a solid album from a hard-working, passionate performer and a reminder that Javier is not only one of the best "Voice" artists of all time but one of the best artists in his genre."


Acclaimed singer/songwriter/guitarist Javier Colon has earned rave reviews and wide-ranging press coverage for his new Concord album ‘Gravity'.  During a recent visit to NBC's The Voice (where he was named winner of its inaugural season,) Colon chatted with host Carson Daly, live, on-air. Colon's return to the show was covered by Extra TV and others, and links are below. The Voice Coach Adam Levine said Colon was his "all time favorite blind audition," throughout the show's ten seasons. 

Via interviews, album reviews, song premieres, TV appearances and more (some samples/links, below,) Colon celebrates the release of his acoustic-textured blend of pop, rock and R&B. On ‘Gravity', his fourth album and his first for Concord Records, he delivers a mix of gorgeous uptempo and midtempo tunes that recall George Michael's ‘Listen Without Prejudice, Vol. 1'.  Known for his soulful voice and commanding stage presence, Colon is in the midst of a major U.S. tour, with dates below. His new music video, for the album's title track, premiered via Huffington Post, and may be seen here: http://smarturl.it/GrvtyV...

More About Javier Colon's ‘Gravity':
"I got together with some good songwriters and musicians, and we just let it flow," states Colon. "I wanted to make an album where I could be free to be myself, with no walls or boundaries. I wanted the freedom to be myself musically, which is really all I've ever wanted, and I was surrounded by people who encouraged me to do that."
Indeed, the 13-song album, on which Colon wrote or co-wrote all but three songs, marks a creative milestone for the artist. Such musically compelling, emotionally resonant tunes as "For A Reason," "Clear the Air," "Walking Blind" and the memorable title track demonstrate the breadth of his talents, matching his distinctly expressive voice with irresistible melodies, insightful lyrics and Colon's own distinctive acoustic guitar work, which sets the tone for the album's spacious instrumental arrangements.
