Colin is passionate about singing - it’s in his family and his blood. Colin is not professionally trained but he is from Wales – a country of singers after all! – and has a raw talent that shines through whether he is singing a beautiful gentle ballad that can silence a room or a raunchy rocky number that can get a party started. He is known for his versatility, professionalism and different styles of singing, having a big voice when required and holding the most extraordinary long notes!
Colin began performing at 14 years of age and has accumulated more than 35 years’ experience singing in clubs, restaurants and at private parties. In his ‘day job’ Colin is a school teacher and has utilised his love of singing and performing for many years with children. Colin loves to entertain and so also entered the world of amateur theatre in September 2013, since which time he has appeared in numerous productions.
Colin is a father of five – three sons and two Golden Retrievers – living in North Lakes, Qld. His devoted wife and biggest fan, Caroline, joins him at all of his gigs and performances, for support, practical assistance, to help ensure that the ‘client’ is happy and everything is as it should be...and, quite honestly, because she would not miss any opportunity to hear Colin sing.
