Colin is a player, folks, and no two performances are ever the same.  An artist to the core; he just lets it fly – enchanting audiences of all ages and backgrounds. He mixes free-style piano technique with rollicking blues and boogie, liquid guitar and wry lyrics. Colin’s own easy brand of Americana invites everyone to enter the timeless zone and satisfaction of good solid music – refreshing the soul and motivating the heart.

No one leaves a Colin Ross show without being amazed and entertained. Winner of the American Masterpiece Grant, Colin has dazzled audiences for 35 years in Portland, Seattle, L.A., and Reno-Tahoe. His shows feature a tremendous variety of original music combined with a fashionable blend of vintage jazz, blues, and Americana styles.

With a lifelong passion for piano and songwriting, Colin’s musical roots are as true as his childhood on the banks of the Mississippi. Combining influences and fascination with everything from from Bach to Woody Guthrie to the Grateful Dead, Colin smoothly preserves and creates legends at the same moment.

Colin frequently does concerts or musical visits to elder care and memory care facilities, hospitals, outpatient clinics: 60-90 minute presentations with lots of interaction, using portable instruments and a wide range of music. The emphasis is on the great songs of the 1930’s and 40’s with plenty of recognizable music, traditional styles and conversation.
