At only 21 years old, Colin Bracewell has established himself as a strong Minneapolis-based singer/songwriter whose raw vocals and production reflect the sound of Bon Iver, Jeff Buckley, and more recently, Hippo Campus. Born in Ontario, Canada, Colin moved to the United States, and now attends the University of Minnesota. He began writing and performing at a young age and now composes and produces much of his own work.
"His instrumentation sets him apart from other singer-songwriters of the same genre, often adding gentle synths, a killer trumpet solo, or a moody saxaphone riff to bring a jazzier feel that offsets lyrics of heartbreak (or ampliphies them, depending on the listener)." THE MINNESOTA DAILY, Bel Moran
His style discovers a dark and nostalgic sound paired with thick production and tight vocals. Usually writing, recording, and producing on his own, Bracewell's vocal pads and true lyrics combined with love and loss, create unique and gravitating artistry. In 2020, his folk-influenced single, “You’re Fine”, inspired by the intensity of of the year’s events, was featured on The Current – as "Song of the Day".
Bracewell's single, "Slopes", will draw you in from the note, and the energy will have you rocking and singing along. He pushed himself to visit other realms of creativity while still maintaining his authentic storytelling and heartfelt melodies. His drive to be unique and relatable allowed further embellishment of Colin's soulful music, taking fans even deeper.
