Colin Brooks (musician)
Colin Brooks is a singer-songwriter, blues-rock guitarist and dobro player currently living in Austin, Texas. He was a founding member of the Americana group the Band of Heathens, but left the band in November 2011 shortly after recording the double live album Double Down - Live in Denver.
Brooks was born and raised in Michigan, but moved to the southwest to pursue a career as a solo artist. Brooks formed the Band of Heathens with Gordy Quist and Ed Jurdi in 2006, after they shared a stage together as individual songwriters. They have since released three studio albums. In 2009, the band was nominated for a "New Emerging Artist" award by the Americana Music Association. In 2010, the band was again honored by the Americana Music Association as nominees for the "Best Duo/Group of the Year".
