“I’m opening doors for you –walk through them.”

-Stevie Ray Vaughan.

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.

Colin James has taken those words to heart. His career has spanned over 30 years, with a

track record that includes 20 studio albums, 8 Juno Awards, 29 Maple Blues Awards and

multi-platinum record sales. His latest 2021 release, Open Road, is a celebration of

personal connections. It includes original tunes written with long time collaborators such as

Colin Linden, Craig Northey and Tom Wilson and reinterpretations of covers by a diverse

group of songwriters including Bob Dylan, Albert King, Tony Joe White and others.

His 2018 album Miles To Go garnered worldwide attention, debuting on the Billboard Blues Charts and holding a position on the RMR Blues Chart for 24 weeks, 14 weeks in the top

10. He continues to sell out shows across Canada with over 80,000 tickets sold on tours

over the past 3 years. Colin was inducted into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame in

2013.

Looking back over Colin’s career, it’s a timeline rich in highlights. His 1988 self-titled debut,

featuring his two self-penned hits “Voodoo Thing” and “Five Long Years,” was the fastest-

selling album in Canadian history. It won him his first Juno and an opening spot on tour with

Keith Richards. His second album, Sudden Stop, featured his hit “Just Came Back,” which

reached #3 on the U.S. radio charts and earned him the Juno Award for “Single of the

Year.” Colin was next credited with launching the swing revival, thanks to his wildly popular

Little Big Band, which has released four successful albums to date.
