Since releasing his debut album Bombs Away, East Texas native, Chris Colston, has been sweeping through the Texas music scene. From playing sold-out stadium shows with Koe Wetzel this past year, to going on the road with him and Hardy’s acoustic tour, Colston has built a dedicated fanbase, with over 13 million cumulative streams and counting. Colston’s musical story began when his stepfather signed him up for drum lessons at the age of 7. He knew immediately that he wanted to be a musician and a few years later he picked up the guitar. At 17, Colston formed his first band and immediately hit the road playing anywhere that would let him in the door. Colston’s music is heavily influenced by some of the greats he grew up listening to like Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers and country legends Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. His musical sound has continued to grow with inspiration from Whiskey Myers, Jason Aldean and Blackberry Smoke. Listening to them helped Colston curate his own style of what he describes as “gritty Texas roots combined with rock n’ roll.” His powerful vocals are undeniable and his honest, relatable lyrics resonate with his rapidly growing fan base creating a sound you cannot deny.
