Colin James - Open Road

“Open Road” Out Now!

It’s release day! Colin James’ 20th album ‘Open Road’ is OUT NOW! Listen wherever you consume music, or buy now at !

With a vault full of songs written over the past two years, both on the road and then in lockdown, it was a tough choice to select just 13 for this album. Colin James and his co-producer Dave Meszaros managed to set up three full band sessions in Vancouver for recording, and the rest was done remotely through pandemic lockdowns using studios on both sides of the Atlantic. The result is a stunning album that captures the magic that musicians can do when given the time and space. Open Road was mixed at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London, UK. – Stony Plain Records

“I am so glad this record is finally out there! I hope you enjoy it!” – Colin

Colin James is thrilled to announce that the blues trio tour of BC and Alberta is officially taking place this November, 2021!
