Colin James

1964 -

Origin: British Columbia, Canada

Main instrument: Acoustic guitar/electric guitar

Genres: Blues, Rock

Canadian singer-songwriter and guitarist Colin James was only 18 years old when he was asked by legendary bluesman Stevie Ray Vaughan to tour across the Prairies and the U.S. The first artist to be signed with Virgin America, James broke another record with his 1988 self-titled debut, the fastest-selling album in Canadian history at the time. Fast forward 20 years and James continues to awe as a musician and bandleader, crafting an infectious blend of blues-rock, swing and pop on Rooftops and Satellites (2009), his 13th studio album, followed by Hearts on Fire in 2015.
