Colin Poulton is a musician, educator, and composer living in Nashville, Tennessee.
As a freelance musician since 2013, Colin’s career as an artist, sideman, and solo instrumentalist has led to him performing in every setting and every style imaginable; international festival and club stages, wedding halls, hotel ballrooms, dive bars, haunted coffee shops (true story), and Nashville honky tonks. He has opened for acts like Snarky Puppy, Earth Wind & Fire, Heart, Blackberry Smoke, and John Anderson and performed live with world class musicians including Kris Myers and David Ellefson.
In addition to performing live, Colin teaches private guitar and music theory lessons both in person in the Nashville area and virtually via Google Meet. He also works as a session guitar player sending tracks from his home studio and composes original music.
He credits his success to being a musical polyglot dedicated to the craft.
As a writer, he enjoys writing about guitar gear, music theory, live shows, his own experiences, and anything else under the umbrella of music as well as doing transcriptions.
His writing has been featured by Native Magazine and Behind the Setlist. Colin endorses and fully enjoys Avedissian Pickups, Backbone Guitar Products, Black 35 Guitars, and Elixir Strings.
