"As the name suggests, the project represents my true colours and what I have experienced in music. It shows my evolution, my growth.

It is a project that I can really encourage people to buy....We took the time to perfect it." -- Entertainer Wayne Marshll on the appeal of his new album, Tru Colours, out now
