With 20 studio albums, 8 Juno Awards, 27 Maple Blues Awards, and multi-platinum record sales under his belt, Colin James is arguably the greatest blues musician to ever hail from the Great White North. The Saskatchewan native got his break opening for Stevie Ray Vaughan, who served as an important mentor for the young singer-songwriter. His 1988 self-titled debut became the fastest-selling album in Canadian history and helped to make him a star in his native country. Since then, James has only continued to add to his legacy, releasing a long list of critically acclaimed albums and working alongside all-time greats such as Bonnie Raitt, Albert King, Keith Richards, Lenny Kravitz, ZZ Top, and Buddy Guy. A true musician’s musician, Colin James continues to set a high bar for both consistency and talent.
