Colin, who lives in Newry, but hails from Co. Armagh, is no stranger to country music. He grew up listening to all the big showbands of the time, such as Philomena Begley, Roly Daniels, Brian Coll, Gene Stuart, Sean Dunphy, and the Indians. From an early age Colin, yearned to play in a country band, but work commitments and the responsibility of providing for a young family became his priority. However, throughout his life the longing to play country music remained. It wasn’t until his maturing years that his musical dream looked like it could become a reality. Colin has a born natural talent for music, playing music by ear. On turning 50, he took to playing the keyboard and is now highly respected by his peers as an accomplished keyboard player.


Though rather shy by nature, Colin, at the age of 54 took up the challenge to sing his first song in public. Since then his musical journey has gone from strength to strength and is now one of the most successful, one-man, social dance, showband acts in Ireland. He has already played in many leading venues in both the North and South of Ireland. During his short career Colin has already played support to many well-known stars such as Johnny Brady, Stephen Smyth, Susan McCann, John McNicholl, Eamonn Jackson, Joe Davitt, Patrick O’Sullivan, Sean Cuddy, Cliona Hagan to name only a few.


To date Colin has released four Albums: ‘My Dream Come True’, ‘A Song for You’ and ‘Showband Diamonds’. His latest album, ’Remember Me’ features a selection of Quicksteps, Waltzes, Slow Waltzes, Foxtrots and a popular Slosh selection and includes Colin’s No1 Hit single ‘Reach Out to Me My Friend’ co-written with Gordon Geary.


Since the release of his Album ‘Remember Me’ in May 2022 the track Sleep My Baby, an upbeat showband number has secured many No1’s across the country. On the 7th November 2022, Colin released yet another track from this very successful Album, titled ‘The Third Dance from the End’ as his latest single.
