Hello everyone and welcome to the new site!
I'm excited about finally getting it online, I'm really happy with it.

I want to first thank Graeme Laurenson for working so hard on putting this site together and to his brother Kenny who has been a great inspiration and support over the last few months, taking photos and art directing the website amongst other things.Well done guys you've done a fantastic job..

I've just confirmed more dates in LA at Largo on sep 17th and 24th and at the Hotel Cafe on Sep 20th which I'm really excited about. It's great to be playing the songs from the new record 'Democracy of One' in a live situation.
I played my first show recently in the new Largo which is at the old Coronet theatre on La Cienega Blvd here in Los Angeles. I was joined by my good friend Jeremy Ruzumna on organ, piano, and by the great guitarist, producer and film composer Michael Brook. It's been cool to reconnect with Jeremy who used to play with The Devlins many years ago and is such an amazing player.
And to have Michael play was a real honour,he's incredible and also makes the best coffee in Hollywood.

I'm hoping to do as much touring as possible in the coming months so if you have any ideas or suggestions please let me know, I'd love to hear from you.

On the video page of the site you can see the clip we recently made in Buenos Aires with my director friend Sebastian Lopez and his editor wife Sabrina. And also a short film Sabrina directed and put together to explain a little bit about the new album. The story of how I ended up there making these pieces with them is a great one so I'll save that for the next blog|

So, I hope you enjoy the site, we'll be updating it as much as we can, and we'll have the store page up soon too as we're planning for you to be able to download or buy the album directly from the site. Kenny is working on lots of other stuff for the store too so it will be fun to see how that develops!

Finally, please join the mailing list on the "Contact" page so that we can keep you notified of events and blogs and perhaps strange goings on in the wonderful world of Hollywood etc..

But most of all I hope you enjoy the music... my friend Pierre Marchand has done a wonderful job producing 'Democracy of one' and I can't wait for people to hear the complete record.

all the best,

Colin. x
