The Great Escape - Music & More

For his electrifying 21st studio album, CHASING THE SUN, acclaimed singer-songwriter and master guitarist Colin James assembled a towering roster of musical guests - Americana icon Lucinda Williams, harmonica ace Charlie Musselwhite, and legendary producer-guitarist Colin Linden, to name just three - to amplify seven scorching blues-rock originals and four dazzling covers. Co-written with longtime sidekick Tom Wilson (Blackie and the Rodeo Kings) and the MacDonald Brothers (The Trews), the new album finds James powerfully building on a repertoire that has earned him eight JUNO Awards, 31 Maple Blues Awards, and induction in the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame. Colin James' career has spanned over 35 years, with a track record that includes 20 studio albums and multi-platinum record sales. His 2021 release, Open Road, won the JUNO Award for best Blues Album and was nominated for Blues Foundation best Blues Rock Album in 2023. Colin continues to sell out shows across Canada with his trio, full band and The Little Big Band. He performs throughout the US extensively and later this fall will embark on a blues river cruise for a week in France.
