What Happens Tomorrow
Coming out of the Metro-Atlanta area, Colin Alvarez brings a fresh take on American Roots music with his unique blending of Influences that is guaranteed to catch your attention and make you a fan. Colin began his life as a musician at the age of eight when he started playing trombone. A year later, he picked guitar after his father gave him Stevie Ray Vaughan's Texas Flood album. Although Colin's background is in classical instruments- these days he focuses solely on guitar. His influences include Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, B. B. King, Joe Bonamassa, Robben Ford, and several others which are blended together to create a unique take on American roots music.
Colin got his start professionally at the age of seventeen with The Patrick Vining Band. Working with Patrick Vining gave Colin knowledge of the music industry that he uses to this day. He left Patrick's band at age twenty-one and went on to do guest and fill in work with several artists including Trickum, Larry Griffith, Bellum Rose, and Ion Avenue. Colin's own personal ventures include Free Flight and Sazbo - the latter recording and releasing two studio albums and one live. Two years ago, Colin assembled an original rock band; Crashing Midnite. Crashing Midnite released one original ten song LP titled Coming Home. This project was an incredible learning experience and allowed Colin to truly find his voice while discovering that his best musical route was to begin publishing and creating music under his own name in order to give it that funky Blues/Rock tone he has been searching for all these years.
in 2016, Colin released his debut EP From the Top. Joining him on the record are Justin Cerasiello, Darryl Lee, and Charlie Korch. Produced at David Leonard's Reveal Audio Services, From the Top shows Colin coming into his own as a songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist. Receiving high praise from the Atlanta scene for this release, Colin immediately began touring locally and regionally in support of the EP.
In 2017, Colin began writing with songwriting partner Joel Edwards (Street Fighting Band, The Barry Richman Band) the songs that will become his next full length release What Happens Tomorrow. Bringing in the best players the Atlanta music scene has to offer, this promises to be a great leap in Colin's career! Colin and Joel have decided to self-produce this record in their studio, allowing for more creative freedom.
