Critically acclaimed, Juno Award winning singer-songwriter Colin James has announced cross Canada tour dates in support of his new album Blue Highways (released via True North Records).
Blue Highways pays tribute to some of the singer/ guitarist’s long time blues idols including Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Freddie King, Jr. Wells & Buddy Guy, Peter Green, Robert Johnson and William Bell to name a few. In the spring of 2015 Colin wrapped up his Hearts on Fire tour. After a couple of months of straight touring, Colin was loving playing with the band and really happy with the sound they had created on stage. What better time to make a record? Especially the record Colin had been itching to make for years – a collection of some of his favourite blues tracks. In less than a week Colin and his touring band went into The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver and in just 2 days, Blue Highways was born.
“My band and I are really excited about playing some of these great blues songs for live audiences across the country,” said James of the tour.
