About Colin James

Colin spent his hoodlum years in the Saskatchewan province, spending his spare time practicing guitar before he fell under the tutelage of one of the most apt mentors on the blues music scene - Stevie Ray Vaughan. He would form a fast friendship with Vaughan, and toured alongside him throughout the United States with his first band, The Hoodoo Men. Vaughan saw Colin's raw talents, and eventually encouraged him to break out and try his hand at a solo career. Though he was born Colin James Munn, he would shorten his name to just 'Colin James' and soon become one of the biggest blues sensations of his generation.

James' big breakout hit would come in 1988, releasing his debut album and exploding all over the Billboard and the airwaves. His sound was authentically blues but experimented with the mixture of other nontraditional genres, including swing and jump blues. He also branched out and collaborated with other musicians, forming the Colin James and the Little Big Band side project which would gain widespread acclaim throughout the 1990s and into the 2000s. For nearly two decades Colin was putting out material for both his solo project as well as his work with the Little Big Band, cementing his reputation as a prolific and talented musician of the era.

Colin has received a never ending stream of accolades and recognitions, including a highly regarded performance in front of none other than Queen Elizabeth II while she was touring her previously owned property. On top of that, Colin James was called up to the stage three times after three big wins at the Toronto Blues Society Maples Blues Awards, winning in categories that included Recorder of the Year and Entertainer of the Year.


Previous Hits

Colin's discography spans multiple decades, with each era of his music being an artistic experiment and a testament to his longevity as a musician and creativity as an artist. His debut self titled album Colin James would drop in 1988, garnering a four star rating from media critic Allmusic and propelling him into the spotlight. The album would be recorded in beautiful Miami Florida, with vibes from the city infusing themselves into the hard blues rock sound that would define Colin's early years. Released on Virgin records, his debut would put him squarely in the eyes of the music community and earn him a Juno Award for Most Promising Artist, a prediction about his future success that would spot on.

Amongst Colin's other major landmark albums is 1993's Colin James and the Little Big Band, his first serious foray into the swing revival genre. A commercial success, this swing revival album would be carried by crowd favorite singles "Train Kept A-Rollin" and "Cadillac", and gave Colin the title of not just an amazing performer but a musical innovator as well.
