Frontman/songwriter F. Alex Johnson started the band in the winter of 2012 after taking a five-year hiatus from recording. Formerly lead guitarist and co-founder of the Northampton, Mass. roots-rockers Drunk Stuntmen, he left the band in 2008, but never stopped writing, practicing and performing. Since 2004, Alex has been busy touring at home and abroad as the guitarist with senior sensations The Young@Heart Chorus. But his passion for telling his own stories with their own musical hues led him to assemble Colorway.
