ABOUT

I play smooth jazz / contemporary rock / light rock / alternative rock. Collin Reese is a contemporary jazz, blues and light rock guitarist. Collin says, “Music is like DNA, every note a musician creates is unique to that artist, we can play each others’ songs, but we can’t reproduce each others’ tonal qualities”. Collin grew up in Washington D.C., Later moved to Landover, Maryland where he studied guitar under Blues great “Bill Harris and Roy Buchanan. Collin organized numerous R&B stage bands that worked the Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia areas. Most recently Grand Junction, Colorado has served as home base for this guitar virtuoso.

Collin has established his own unique guitar tone that blends resounding chords, shimmering solo voicing and toe-tapping rhythms reaching an emotional connection with each note.

Influences

Inspired by the likes of George Benson, Norman Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Earl Klugh and Lee Ritenour, Collin has a well-built position in the adult contemporary smooth jazz genre and can effortlessly transition into powerful bluesy licks. His music style has been coined as “gettin your groove on”. Collin says, “Music should be enjoyable to listen too, it creates memories of special moments that are re-lived when that special song is heard again and again”.
