In addition to singing, playing guitar, songwriting, record production and engineering, Colin plays bass, pedal steel guitar, and dobro and has recorded and performed with many notables on their projects, as well as his solo projects .
Music was his first career, and although it was not his primary focus for a period of time, he's been back performing (mostly an acoustic single in Southern California), is currently recording an album of original material and releasing singles in advance of the album release, and does occasional session work for other artists and friends. In addition, he plays guitar in a trio at the church he attends and says it's a great investment of the gifts that God has blessed him with and a little pay-it-forward action.
