Colin Munroe is a music producer and singer/songwriter originally from North Gower, Ontario, who now resides in Toronto.
Colin was raised by religious parents who pulled him out of Grade 3 due to a lingering fear and distrust of the government. Colin was home‐schooled alongside his 3 younger siblings until Grade 9 at which point his parents finally granted their son’s request to attend a nearby arts school.
Colin escaped small town life to attend the University of Toronto, where he received a degree in cinema studies and philosophy. During his time in Toronto, Colin collaborated with urban‐music talent including Glenn Lewis and Divine Brown. He co-wrote and produced 10 songs on Ray Robinson’s Juno-nominated album, What it Is, and has cuts on the new Brassmunk CD (including How ‘Bout feat. Moka Only). Colin also has upcoming releases by Degrassi star Drake, Divine Brown, Saukrates and Frank n Dank. Recently several US artists have sought material from Colin including former Blackstreet member Chauncey Black (Universal/Motown), Sean Price and Brick and Lace (Geffen).
Don’t Think Less of Me, is an 11-song pop album owing its song writing influences to early Van Morrison, U2 and The Beatles, hip hop and soul music.
In late 2007, Grammy winning producer Dallas Austin (Pink, Gwen Stefani, Leona Lewis) collaborated to advance Colin to UniversalMotown Records. Late January 2008, Colin leaked an unofficial remix/response to Kanye West’s Flashing Lights online. Within 10 days, the remix and accompanying street‐video had spread across the internet like wildfire. Perez Hilton, MTV, Pitchfork Media, Arjan Writes, Discobelle and Kanye West all covered the phenomenon. Kanye West included "I want those Flashing Lights" on his latest mixtape, Glow in the Dark tour Mixtape.
