"Art, Music, and Drinks: PFAC Arts Cafe"

...Last Thursday Colin Hogan, who is a singer, songwriter, and musician, played for the captivated audience. Bassist Brian Link accompanied her. Her music was refreshing and she displays a diverse musical repertoire. I recommend checking her out at Granby North Restaurant on April 1... - On Hampton Roads

"Colin-A New Star on the Richmond Music Scene Horizon"

From the first time I saw Colin perform (at Out of Bounds opening a Rockitz TV/WRIR radio fund raiser) I could tell she has 'it'. The 'it' is a fine captivating voice, comparable guitar skills, wonderfully structured original songs by the scores, and a stage presence that is natural, relaxed, & fluid. She looks like she was born to perform on stage. - Rockitz Magazine

"Restoring the structure"

"Another standout artist in the lineup was Colin Hogan, a musician from northern Virginia. She skillfully blended a soulful acoustic guitar with sassy vocals and a funk-step bass line to create a danceable sound that induced head bobbing throughout the venue. Her contributions to "Restoring the Structure" include "Canvas" and "Hold Me."" - The Spectrum – Buffalo, NY

"Best Portland, OR bands of 2014"

"I really like The Colin Trio because of the Nora Jones-esque vocals, sassy songwriting and amazing rhythm section. Last summer down at the RiverPlace on the waterfront I heard this band perform for a large crowd and kept them happy for hours." - AXS


Franklin EP (2005)
Sessions Down the Shore (2006)

Colin has recently been featured on 93.7 BOB FM’s “Sunrise on Sundays" with Hunter Hughes, a 30 minute Sunday morning session live in studio sharing ideas behind songs and live performances of the songs.

Colin’s music airs on NPR’s “Out of the Box” hosted by Paul Shagrue, a daily airplay dedicated to independent, new and alternative recording artists.

Richmond Independent Radio, WRIR also features Colin.



Less of a trio and more of a triple-headed hydra roving through an alurring array of genre-blending styles, The Colin Trio is anything but typical.

Named after lead singer, guitarist, keyboardist, Colin Hogan, listeners would be hard-pressed to name any specific member of the trio as Lead. Whether it’s Colin‘s knack for slipping in and out of musical eras with ease, or bassist Brian Link’s adeptness with any groove, or drummer Cheo Larcombe’s ability to start at the flick of a match, watching The Colin Trio perform live is akin to three improvisational masters besting one another at every turn between a cavalcade of Rock, Soul, Jazz, Funk, and the Blues.
