Having grown up in Lubbock Texas amongst some of the best songwriters of the time, Colin moved to Austin as a teenager and hit the music scene. He recently released his second full-length album "Goodnight Lane," which has won him fans and critical acclaim the world over. Mojo Magazine gave the album a 4-star review, as did Uncut. The Hartford Courant said "Colin Gilmore has the best country album of the year," though acknowledging that calling the album "country" would be a gross oversimplification.
Colin has opened for everyone from Mason Jennings to Alejandro Escovedo and The Flatlanders, who recorded Colin's song "The Way We Are" on their album "Hills And Valleys," only to see the song become their biggest-selling download. As the Austin-American Statesman's Michael Corcoran states, "These are song's you're going to want to hear live."
