Graham Colton's expanded album+green tour

Pacific Coast Eyes is another solid effort from Graham Colton. I look forward to hearing the newest songs and catching a show next time he plays Southern California...

Singer-songwriter Graham Colton will celebrate the release of Pacific Coast Eyes Vol. 2 on Oct. 18 by launching the Go Natural tour, a two-month jaunt across the Southeastern U.S. that will feature stripped down live performances, intimate fan interaction and a powerful environmental message. Instead of crossing the country in a tour van burning dirty diesel fuel, Colton will embark in a vehicle that runs on compressed natural gas (CNG).

CNG produces up to 90 percent fewer particle emissions than conventional fuels including gasoline, and is considered one of the cleanest fuels on the planet. It also costs about 50 percent less than the price of gasoline and is nearly one-third the price of diesel.

The Go Natural tour is engineered to draw awareness to the CNGnow movement, an effort to educate the public about the economic and environmental benefits of natural gas vehicle technology.

Throughout Go Natural, Colton will document his experience driving a CNG vehicle, reporting back with video blogs, tour diary entries and road reports via Facebook, Twitter and other platforms, including his website. He will also be the first featured contributor on, a social network and information hub for people who drive CNG vehicles, or are interested in learning more about this cleaner and more affordable alternative fuel that is available in an increasing number of cities nationwide.

In addition to learning more about CNG vehicles, fans who visit Colton’s page on will receive access to an exclusive, previously unreleased MP3 download from the artist. Fans can also sign up to join Colton and the movement as an advocate for CNG.

“This tour hits very close to home for me because natural gas is a fuel that’s produced in my home state of Oklahoma,” Colton said. “Driving a CNG vehicle gives me an opportunity to do my part in limiting my eco-footprint, as well as raise awareness about American dependence on foreign resources and oil. By educating people along the tour, I hope to show my fans just how detrimental our reliance on foreign oil is, and how making the switch to compressed natural gas can not only help us end that reliance, but also make a powerful, positive impact in the battle to curb carbon emissions.”

Pacific Coast Eyes Vol. 2 will feature all of the material from Colton’s acclaimed sophomore album Pacific Coast Eyes, alternate versions of the title track, "1981" and "Everything You Are." In addition, the release will include three brand new songs completed just last month. Pacific Coast Eyes Vol. 2 will be available for $5.99 via iTunes and, where new tour dates can also be found.
