Bio

Colin Lillie is one of a kind - you can easily discover that after one minute of meeting the self-proclaimed gypsy Scotsman and now proud adopted Territorian, but what’s truly special about Mr. Lillie is his passion for life and music. Capturing the kind of intensity that Colin has on an album or a live performance is something that every musician aspires to create. Whether it’s because of past experiences, a knack for songwriting, his powerful voice or combination of things, what remains true is that every time Colin Lillie picks up a guitar and opens his mouth something special happens, the passion shines through and the music becomes real.
Colin’s debut album Glass Homes received rave reviews from all the press and online heavyweights, "a compelling debut album, packed with vocal power, poetry, passion and palpable honesty" - 4.5/5 The Australian, "With his debut record, Lillie has reached within himself and brought forth something truly special" - 4/5 The Guardian Australia. His live performances have been dubbed as some of the best in the county and even his voice won a National Live Music Award and the AU Review Australian Artist of the Year Peoples choice award.
