Colin is a talented, versatile and passionate solo singer and keyboard player. Originally from Wales, Colin cut his teeth as a performer at numerous venues in his home country from a very young age.

Music was in his family and in his blood. Later, since travelling the world, he has accumulated more than 15 years’ experience performing in clubs, restaurants, and bars, and at private functions and conferences in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia.

Colin’s vocal talents enable him to sing a wide spectrum of music. His voice can be exquisitely soft and beautiful, lending itself to romantic ballads and, at the other extreme, powerful and raunchy, as whilst punching out rock and soul numbers in the style of Joe Cocker and the Commitments.

Because of this versatility, his music is suitable for a wide range of events – weddings, corporate functions, sports and social clubs, private parties, and bars.

Colin also performs on a no-fee basis in local aged care homes, where his extensive knowledge of music from the 1930s and ‘40s goes down a storm!

With Colin, you can ask either for a variety of suitable music of his choosing or for a more personalised performance. He can focus his performance on one genre or any number of your choosing to create the right atmosphere.

Given sufficient notice, he will even research and prepare music that is new to him to make the occasion extra special and personal to you.

Also, with Colin, you get that bit extra. He encourages audience participation and will happily share the microphone with anyone who wants to ‘give it a go’. In addition, if your party involves children, he is skilled at getting them involved by leading them in special dance routines. (Colin is a school teacher and has led song and dance troupes at schools for many years.)

Colin is also more than happy to act as DJ and play your own music when required.
