In 1999 he traveled to Canada and the United States, driving over the Canadian border through the north of Montana to the south in Orlando through New Orleans, Memphis, and Nashville. The American Mid West inspired him and many songs were written from this journey. Upon his return to Australia he relocated to Sydney for more music opportunities.

Colin has just finished recording his first album with Michael in professional studios. The final product is world class and includes some of Australia’s finest country rock musicians on fiddle, mandolin, lap steel and harmonica. The album will be released in early 2006 and Colin’s first single “Looking for You” is a duet with fellow country singer Colin Finley.

Colin now resides in South East Queensland, Australia on an acre with a small recording studio where he writes and records his demos at home in the quiet surroundings of the bush, when not co writing with others.

Colin is well known for his vigorous guitar playing, his diverse vocal ability and connecting the audience with his showmanship.

Sometimes things don’t work out the way we plan
Sometimes I wish I could be a stronger man

Feeling lost keep giving in
Have lost my way to break the chain

Sometimes I think you’ve cast a spell bewitching me
But there aint not love potion for you and me

I’ve tried and I’ve try to do the right thing
But here I am losing me

Pain has been my best friend
Cant seem to find my way out
Lame is my best reason
For staying trapped in this loneliness
PAIN Why did I chose you

We lye here together but it’s a lonely bed
I dream of better times, why do I kid myself

I crave for passion intimacy
Can’t seem to fine what use to be


Why did I chose you Where did I lose you,
Your spinning your web messing with my head
your trapping me in your reality
Please set me free


Hand of Fate

Written By: colin fox


So long l have lived without
So long l have dreamed
So long l have played around
To crowds while they drink

To be heard around the world
The songs l write aint so deep
Sing along with these words
Forget your worries come play with me

Touched by the hand of fate
Touched by my lover
Blessed with the strength of faith
Given by my mother

I've been loved by more than one
Bit the one l love is for keeps
Hear it in my words
Hear it while l sing


Stay Stay Stay with me for a while
Stay Stay Stay with me for life
