Bio

Coming out of the Metro-Atlanta area, Colin Alvarez brings a fresh take on Blues/Funk music with his unique blending of the two genres that is guaranteed to catch your attention and have you bopping along to whatever it is he's playing. Colin began his venture into the musical world at the age of eight when he started playing trombone and a year later added guitar after his father gave him Stevie Ray Vaughan's Texas Flood album. Although Colin's background is in trombone, euphonium, tuba, and French horn - these days he focuses solely on guitar. His influences include Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, B. B. King, Joe Bonamassa, Robben Ford, and several others which are blended together to create a unique take on both Blues and Funk music. 


Colin got his start professionally at the age of seventeen with The Patrick Vining Band. Working with Patrick Vining gave Colin  knowledge of the music industry that he uses to this day. He left Patrick's band at age twenty-one and went on to do guest and fill in work with several artists including Trickum, Larry Griffith, and Ion Avenue. Colin's own personal ventures include Free Flight and Sazbo - the latter recording and releasing two studio albums and one live. Two years ago, Colin assembled an original rock band; Crashing Midnite. Crashing Midnite released one original ten song LP titled Coming Home. This project was an incredible learning experience and allowed Colin to truly find his voice while discovering that his best musical route was to begin publishing and creating music under his own name in order to give it that funky Blues/Rock tone he has been searching for all these years. 


Today, Colin is working hard in the studio and at home to bring entirely original sounds to his upcoming full album; From The Top. The album will include ten songs written and arranged entirely by Colin and will have a very Blues/Funk feel to it. The first five songs have been released on an EP which you can get your hands on at a gig or right here at Colin Alvarez Music dot com! Keep your eyes and ears peeled for exciting new things happening in Colin's career!
