From the prairies of Saskatchewan to sharing the stage with arguably the greatest and most influential guitarists of all time, Colin James still remembers those words of advice given to him by the late, great, Stevie Ray Vaughan.
For every young guitar player growing up in a small town, Colin James’ story is their story – one of drive, passion, ambition and a strong sense that their destiny lay beyond the safe confines of home.
Looking back on a career that now spans two decades, Colin has walked through more than just a few doors to reach the level of success that he enjoys today. He continues to record the music that he loves (having just released his 12th CD, “Rooftops and Satellites”) has sold multi-platinum many times over, and his concert tours continue to sell out coast to coast.
Hey folks! The band, crew, and I all made it home to Canada. I’m happy to be home with my family and my dogs, but also sad that we had to postpone the remainder of our March tour. We look forward to getting back to these shows as soon as rescheduling and safety allows. For now we will be hunkering down and self isolating at home for the next while. Stay healthy and lets work together to #flattenthecurve. Here’s a song we were going to be adding to the setlist. Take good care everyone. -Colin#colinjames #blues #acoustic #athome
