Colin Munroe // Interview

I was contacted by Colin’s people a few weeks back about attending his performance at the Viper Room. I gave his stuff a listen and wasn’t 100% sure if I wanted to catch him or not.  I listened to his mix tape (Unsung Hero) a few more times and started to really dig his stuff, and decided to go to the show.  Unfortunately, it was cancelled due to scheduling conflicts.  I was bummed, but his publicist was cool and said he would try to set up an interview when Colin was in town.  Well, on Tuesday morning around 10am I got an email and the interview was on!!  The interview took place on a roof top near the corner of Sunset and Hayworth.  Boy oh boy was it hot. I was sweating  the entire time and wish i would have worn some shades.


(This picture was taken in the doorway of an elevator as the door kept trying to close and was making obnoxious buzzing sounds)

My favorite part of the interview was when I forgot the name of his mix tape and actually went in my pocket to get my notes.  I was considering cutting that out but Colin was just too cool about it.  He thought for a second I some how had a CD in my pants.

I must say that after talking with Colin he is just an all around chill dude. Very excited to catch him on tour and looking forward to hearing his new album “Don’t Think Less Of Me”

Make sure to download a copy of Colin’s Killer Mix Tape The Unsung Hero


Retraction : Colin’s version of ” I want those flashing lights isn’t actually on the Unsung Hero mix tape. (My bad)
