Colin has played guitar since he was 10 years old. The guitar came easy but his singing was rough until he started working with Gene Raymond in Austin, as a vocal coach using the Seth Riggs Speech Level method. In the summer of 2011, Colin went to an AMTC “Shine” Conference in Orlando, Florida where he had an entire week of live performance opportunities in front of about 100 industry people. There was strong interest in his acting and music skills and that led to trips to Atlanta and LA to explore acting and music opportunities. He ended up spending a year in LA taking acting classes and doing auditions.
He played lead guitar in the teen band “Gravity Hill” during his time in LA, with a highlight being live shows at Whisky A-Go-Go and the O.C. Fair. He also recorded his first two original songs while in LA with producer Anthony Mazza. “I Bet” was released on his 14th birthday and “Wings” followed in July, 2012. His third single “Linger” will be released on September 18th.
Colin Brooks Huntley – “Wings”
Colin writes all lyrics and music for his original songs and performs all the vocals and guitar work on each recording. He is influenced musically by artists such as John Mayer, Ed Sheeran, Jason Mraz, Gavin DeGraw, Train and Foster the People. All of these artists are part of his emerging guitar style and unique vocal approach.
Currently, Colin is in Texas attending high school. He is writing new songs and recording the good ones. He plans to play as many live shows as possible and build his audience online through YouTube, Twitter, ReverbNation and the multiple emerging Indie online radio and networking channels. Colin is unsigned and unrepresented for music. He is represented for acting by Abrams Artists Agency and Manager Cinda Snow of Snow Entertainment in LA. He is also represented by Pastorini-Bosby Talent in Houston.
