Starting his 50 year career span with The Zombies, Colin's signature voice reached millions across the world with number one hits such as "Tell Her No," "She's Not There," and "Time of The Season." After The Zombies' untimely breakup in 1968, Colin pursued a solo career releasing his first record, One Year, in 1971. One Year was met with critical acclaim and scored Colin a hit single all across Europe with "Say You Don't Mind" reaching #15 in the UK charts. Music critic Robin Platts of All Music wrote: "Widely considered to be Blunstone's best solo album, One Year is the perfect showcase for his distinctive, breathy voice. He also came into his own as a songwriter on this record." Colin followed up his debut record with 1972s release, Ennismore, again reaching #31 in the UK Charts with the single, "I Don't Believe In Miracles." In 1980, his cover of the timeless motown classic "What Becomes of The Broken Hearted" attained #13 in UK. Blunstone's unearthly voice would again grace the airwaves in 1982, this time being featured on The Alan Parson's Project most famous single "Old and Wise," reaching #21 in US charts.
With chart-topping success in the UK and Europe, Colin has been keeping busy performing solo when The Zombies aren't touring. With his 11th record released this past October, On The Air Tonight, some down time between Zombies tours, and the (constant) push from fans, for the first time in over 30 years Colin has decided to take his solo show to the states! Accompanied by a full band, Colin performs The Zombies biggest hits, going on to his extensive solo catalog from the 1970s and 1980s, leading all the way up to his latest record.
