Colin Gilmore has called Austin home for a long time, but he never shook off his Lubbock upbringing. Sitting in his living room, watching his father Jimmie Dale Gilmore play with Joe Ely, Butch Hancock, Terry Allen and countless others shaped the way he saw and heard life. After making 3 critically-acclaimed albums (and a world-wide fan base), Colin is working on his 4th, collaborating with celebrated producer and artist Richard Barone, who's punk-folk-new wave-anything-goes background proved to be a perfect fit. Last year Colin made his big screen debut, performing in (and writing songs for) feature film Barracuda, which debuted at SXSW Film to rave reviews. Colin has always seen music as something that makes life more real, and everything he is doing now helps prove the point.
