Making music is a way for 22 year old Collin McLoughlin to channel his inquisitive nature, reflect on life, and communicate through emotional melodies, providing the foundation for his musical style and original sound. Now, sharing his reflections with a much larger audience, his work is made more distinct by what friends have always called “the voice.” Work on his first solo project began in May, 2010, with a break to tour with Sam Adams. Their first show together was at the House of Blues in Boston with audience of 2,500, and recently Collin has linked up with Kinetics and One Love (writers of “Airplanes” for B.o.B.) on stage and collaborated with them in the studio. Live concerts are second nature to Collin, as he has been performing since his early teen acoustic days. His previous band, Nautical Young, opened for K'naan, Wale, Lupe Fiasco, Fabolous, Brother Ali and others in spring of 2010, and his loyal college and university fan base continue to book Collin for concerts. Collin's soulful voice and truthful lyrics resonate against a sturdy backdrop of electro pop. "Come Back to You" chronicles first love and the lingering questions surrounding its loss. "Back To the Wall" is the story of Collin's musical journey, an often unforgiving path in contrast to other career choices. Every song he writes draws a bit more of his life experience. Universal themes, credible story lines and melodic hooks are layered over toe-tapping, electro-pop rhythms. Collin’s positive, upbeat energy is infectious. The live performances are always high energy. Collin is currently recording his solo debut at the famed Downtown Studios in Manhattan, with Grammy-winning engineer Jason Goldstein, who has worked with Beyonce, Jay Z, Kanye West, and Michael Jackson. The album flows like chapters of a memoir that has been waiting to be released, and the first few singles have received exceptional feedback from distinguished members of the music blogging community.
