The Color Up is an LA Indie Band that consist of experienced musicians, raised in the Los Angeles music scene and have performed at most all of the monumental venues in L.A.
The Japanese, Filipino singer-songwriter was born July 17th 1986 in Manila, Philippines. Chivito Nishinome, also known as Chevy, immigrated to Los Angeles with his family for greater opportunities.
Chevy grew up in the suburbs of La Crescenta, CA. Although Chevy grew up in a musically inclined family, he found his love for the arts in high school by joining chamber choir, advance dance team, and rock bands. As a lead vocalist of numerous amateur rock groups, Chevy perused in and out of Sunset Blvd performing in his teens at such places as the Whiskey A Go Go, The Roxy, Viper Room, and The Key Club.
After High School, the young adult took some time off the entertainment business and pursued his interest in the medical field. By becoming a Registered Respiratory Therapist at a young age of 21, Chevy helped his family with their financial needs.
As a Healthcare Professional, he worked in downtown Los Angeles Emergency Rooms, Cardiac Surgery & Intensive Care Units.This new chapter in his life led to a deep depression and self-destructive behavior due to the nature of his work & lack of creative outlet. With the help and support of his family and friends, the young artist turned a new leaf and became a self taught multi-instrumentalist. By learning the ropes of composition alongside long time friend and bandmate Mr. Bryan Limon, “The Color Up” was manifested.
Los Angeles native Lorenzo Scott has been playing the L.A. club scene for many years.
Growing up in L.A. he’s been the member of many bands. This experience has prepared him for the job of being the rhythm keeper for The Color Up.
Lorenzo has been playing the drums since the age of fourteen. The initial spark to play the drums was actually ignited while watching The Beatles movie “A Hard Days Night” as a child.
“ I saw Ringo and I thought, that looks like a lot of fun!”. However, it took a few years from that viewing to actually get a drum set and start playing.
Besides drumming and making music, Lorenzo’s other passion is world travel. Lorenzo has visited many exotic places on planet Earth, with more to come.
It’s Lorenzo’s dream to travel the Earth with The Color Up. Experiencing far away lands while at the same time bringing The Color Up’s music to the masses.
