Colin James is a man who knows what he likes and sticks with it. One of the things James is rather fond of is touring his native Canada, which is just what he plans to do for a few months next year. The Saskatchewan-born guitarist will hit quite a few cities on the 20 dates he has lined up for next year.
His first show of 2005 is set to happen on January 7th in Oakville, Ontario, with his last scheduled gig taking place on March 6th in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. The singer will continue to tour in support of his most recent album 'Traveller', which was released earlier this year. James has been on the road since he was a teenager, which accounts for the title he chose for his eighth full-length album.
One of Canada's best guitarists, James has been a force in the music business for quite a long time. His first gig came when he was just 16 years old, with his first band The Hoodoo Men. James went on to release his self-titled solo debut in 1988, which turned out to be the fastest selling album in this country's history, picking up a slew of Juno Awards along the way.
