Colin James

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor colin jamesColin James (born Colin James Munn, August 17, 1964) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, guitarist, and record producer, who plays in the blues, rock, and neo-swing genres. James was born in Regina, Saskatchewan. He got his break opening for Stevie Ray Vaughan in Regina in 1984. When the scheduled backup act didn’t show, he only had a few hours’ notice to put together a set of blues standards with members from the local Regina band “Flying Colours”. Vaughan invited Colin to perform with him during the encore, and then join his tour as a permanent opening act. He and his band The Hoodoo Men opened for Vaughn for several tour dates in the United States. According to legend, Vaughan himself suggested the stage name “Colin James”, because when announced over arena P.A. systems, “Munn” sounded like “Mud”. James also played guitar on Richard Marx’s song “Thunder and Lightning”. See for more.
