Biography

All "undiscovered" artists wish they were this guy, because with his talent, he's likely to "explode" at any moment. From a small town in East Texas, Colby grew up a "jack of all trades." But it's now obvious which trade he's mastered and what he was put on this Earth to do.

"When I heard it, I was blown away... Colby's sound is like cool, cool water in the summer heat."
- RADNEY FOSTER, Singer/Songwriter/Producer

With an amazingly honest and impeccable delivery of folk/pop melodies with a slight southern twist, Colby's clever lyrics and silky voice can turn a room of disinterested spectators into a gang of gawking groupies. Even the pros are in awe.

After hearing Colby's opening set for a sold-out coffeehouse show, headliner and veteran Texas singer/songwriter Shake Russell told Colby, "Great songs! We'll probably be opening for you by this time next year."

Colby's wide-ranging style has procured comparisons to John Mayer, James Taylor, Dave Matthews, Amos Lee, Joshua Radin, Bob Schneider, Jason Mraz, and Gordon Lightfoot

Lyrics

"Heartbeats"

Written By: Colby Miller

I’ve only got so many heartbeats left.
I’ve only got so many heartbeats left.
A tickin’ clock locked in my chest,
It’s keepin’ time just like the rest.
Its movin’ parts put to the test,
And I know…
I’ve only got so many heartbeats… left.

I’ve only got so many songs to play.
I’ve only got so many songs to play.
When I’m done, I hope you say,
“It may take another day
Or two before I catch my breath.”
‘Cause you’ll know…
You’ve only got so many heartbeats… left.

Every minute’s a minute gone.
You’re killin’ time, it’s movin’ on.
But if time is money, then what I do
Is spend a fortune of mine for you.

I’ve got so many stories to tell.
I’ve got so many stories to tell.
‘Bout a simple man avoidin’ Hell.
He’s findin’ love and livin’ well.
But little time to share the rest.
‘Cause you know…
He’s only got so many heartbeats… left.
Yeah, he’s only got so many heartbeats… left.
