Colm Wilkinson Background
Hailing from Ireland, Colm Wilkinson grew up in a family where music was an integral part of their upbringing. His father was well-versed on a slew of instruments while his mother was a celebrated singer in the Dublin area. He explained, "I'm from a small Irish family of 10, so there always was music in the house. Growing up, my older sisters had things like South Pacific, and opera on. They got into opera very early and were always doing things. I had six sisters, and three of them became the Andrews Sisters; they morphed into the Andrews sisters doing harmonies and stuff like that. It was a real mix of music that I grew up listening to, from Irish ballads and traditional songs right through to whatever was on the radio." Wilkinson added that he was inspired by a variety of artists as well, including John McCormack, Elvis, Muddy Waters, Gigli, Chuck Berry and more! So it was no surprise when Wilkinson stepped into the limelight as a teen to play in local music groups with his heavily saturated musical background. He was even included in a U.S. tour. But Wilkinson got his true break when he broadened his cultural horizons and tried out for theatrical productions. In 1972, Wilkinson landed the Judas Iscariot role in the renowned Jesus Christ Superstar - an Andrew Lloyd Webber production. His role allowed him to take stages across Britain and his native country. The role additionally served as a springboard for other high-profile roles in plays like Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera. As a multifaceted talent, Wilkinson also proved himself to be an incredible singer. His solo career brims with countless album releases. And judging by his wildly successful career as an actor, singer and a songwriter, Wilkinson has gracefully balanced all of his gifts.

Colm Wilkinson Trivia
When asked if he considers himself as Irish or Canadian, Wilkinson replied: "Oh, I'm a Canadian citizen now. I became a Canadian citizen at least 10 or 12 years ago. Ireland's my home, it's where my soul is I suppose but at the same time, Canada's where I live. Canada's been very, very good to me. I'd like to spend more time in Ireland, but would I ever settle back there? I'm not too sure. I've gotten used to living in Canada now, but I love the Irish people very much and I miss them a lot."
