Salutations! Thanks for visiting my website.
I'm a fiddle player, banjo tickler, and singer. I live in Portland, Oregon, with roots in Fairbanks, Alaska and McMurdo Station, Antarctica.
I'm in some delightful projects, and can't wait to see what the future holds. Check out the links below.
"A tinge of Americana, a snap of old timey mountain sounds, a couple of hugs worth of Irish antics, and a barrel of authenticity!
-Writer's Block Bookstore, Anchorage Alaska
Born and raised in the golden heart city of Fairbanks, Alaska, after a decade of bouncing between Bellingham, Washington and McMurdo Station, Antarctica, he now calls Portland, Oregon home.
An accomplished songwriter, singer and fiddle player, Collin combines a modern vocal edge with old time instrumentation. He accompanies himself on banjo in the moments when he isn't drawing on his roots in Irish and old time fiddling.
His first solo album, Again Again, touches on themes of travel and belonging. Themes like that come naturally given his peculiar tendency to try and belong in Alaska, Antarctica, and the Pacific Northwest simultaneously.
