Born and raised in the musical hotbed of West Georgia, BRIAN COLLINS is the latest member of the Georgia Gang which has produced legendary artists such as Alan Jackson, Patty Loveless and Travis Tritt, as well as newcomer sensations Sugarland, Luke Bryan, Zac Brown Band and Lady Antebellum.
A born entrepreneur, Brian wears many hats in his quest to find the American Dream – producer, engineer, and of course, singer-song writer. His music reflects that same nature- introspective, brutally truthful, but hopeful. His lyrics are uplifting without being saccharine or trite. They are direct, moving and seem to touch the lives of his fans.
Brian’s easy going yet hard working nature has led him to share the stage with KISS, Angie Aparo, James Otto, Colin Hay (of Men At Work), Zac Brown, the Smithereens, Marshall Tucker Band, Georgia Satellites, Edwin McCain, Blackberry Smoke and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
“Blue Light Entertainment “, A booking and publishing company, in conjunction with “Blue Light Studio” (started by Brian in 2005 and partnered with Santos Vasquez and Tommy Smith in 2011)have produced/engineered albums and tracks for hard rockers Skid Row, Tony Lucca, The Luchagores, Atlanta- based rap artists T.I., Twista and Frank White, as well as acoustic rockers Nic Cowan and Tim O’Donovan. The Blue Light Studio’s facilities are in great demand by producers for the clean, warm sound created in Brian’s personally designed recording rooms.
Brian Collins and his band keep an active performance schedule, traveling the country for over 150 dates a year, mostly in the South-East to the Mid-West. Most recently they had the privilage to be the only country act to be on the bill for the first ever “KISS Kruise!”
The Brian Collins Band’s debut EP, “Hello Life”, was released in January of 2012 and is now available on iTunes
