Biography

Colin was raised by Christian parents who pulled him out of Grade 3 because they felt they could do a better job than the system was doing. 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.[1]

Colin attended 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.[1] He co-wrote and produced 10 songs on Ray Robinson’s Juno-nominated album, What It Is, and has cuts on the BrassMunk disc Fewturistic (including How ‘Bout feat. Moka Only). Colin also has upcoming releases by Once Degrassi: The Next Generation star and now rapper Drake, Kardinal Offishall, 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).[2]

Don’t Think Less of Me, is an 11-song[2] 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, and now exceeds one million views on YouTube. 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.[1]

In 2009 Colin Munroe took part in an interactive documentary series called City Sonic. The series, which featured 20 Toronto artists, had him reflect on his early experiences with the Revival Bar.[3]
