Colin Blunstone was born in Hatfield, Hertfordshire on the 24th June 1945. He went to school in St Albans where he was introduced to the other members of The Zombies. After attracting a large local following, the band were offered a recording contract by Decca Records which resulted in their first single, ‘She’s Not There’ becoming a world-wide hit. Three years on the road culminated in The Zombies final album the acclaimed ‘Odessey and Oracle’.

After a short break, Colin’s solo career began in earnest with ‘One Year’ on Epic Records, from which the hit single ‘Say You Don’t’ Mind’ was taken. Two more albums on Epic followed, ‘Ennismore’ and ‘Journey’ which spawned the hits, ‘I Don’t Believe In Miracles’ and ‘How Can We Dare To Be Wrong’.

This was followed by a spell living in California where he signed for Elton John’s label, Rocket Records and released three critically acclaimed albums, ‘Planes’, ‘Never Even thought’ and ‘Late Nights in Soho’.

Returning to the UK, Colin supplied the vocals for Dave Stewart’s hit version of ‘What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted’ followed by further hits with Smokey Robinson’s ‘Tracks Of My Tears’ and The Alan Parson’s Project’s ‘Old And Wise’.

These tracks were followed by three further albums, ‘Greatest Hits’, ‘Echo Bridge’ and ‘The Light Inside’, before Colin decided the time was right to play live again where he was joined by fellow Zombies founder member, Rod Argent. Together they have recorded three studio albums, ‘Out Of The Shadows’ and ‘As Far As I Can See’, a live double album and DVD, ‘Live At The Bloomsbury Theatre’ and a live album and DVD, ‘Odessey And Oracle {Revisited} 40th Anniversary’, of their sold-out concerts at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire in 2008.

‘The Ghost of You and Me’, was his first solo album in ten years, Colin wrote five new songs for it and renewed his partnership with producer Jon Sweet and arranger Chris Gunning. In February 2009, Colin Blunstone toured the UK with his own band bringing ‘The Ghost Of You And Me’ album to a live audience around the record’s release.

In 2011, as lead singer with The Zombies, Colin recorded a new album called “Breathe Out, Breathe In”, the first Zombies studio album in 9 years. It got fantastic reviews in the UK and the US and the band toured extensively in both territories to promote it. Plus dates in Holland, Belgium, France, Canada, Israel and Greece.

2012 saw a new Colin Blunstone solo album release called ‘On The Air Tonight’ which again he toured to promote in the UK. The following years were spent mostly in the USA playing live and undertaking a crowd-funding campaign on Pledge Music before returning to the studio to record a new album released under license to Cherry Red label in the UK and Europe. The Zombies featuring Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent have continued to tour mainly the USA taking original band members on the road to once again perform their second album of 1968 called Odessey & Oracle.

Colin and his solo band take to the road again touring the UK in November 2017 and again in April 2018 in Holland and in the UK again. There is even talk of a new Colin Blunstone solo album in 2018!

Fantastic. Colin Blunstone rolled back the years to give a great vocal performance. Subtle and sweet on the quieter numbers and joyous on the rockers. A great backing band too. A great night!

Magical night out, both Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent were on top form. Two hours of non-stop music and stories from the Sixties.
