About Colin Lillie

COLIN LILLIE is certainly one of a kind. This Gypsy Scotsman found a new life in Alice Springs in the Australian central desert where he has thrived as a songwriter. Colin released his debut album “Glass Homes” in 2016 and managed to take out the AU Review people’s choice Australian Artist Of The Year award. In early 2020 he released the Mark Lizotte (DIESEL) produced “Petrichor” EP and has recently put the finishing touches on album 2 “Shades Of Love” which due for release in July 2021.

You don’t have to delve very deep into Colin’s lyrics or the heart of his voice to know his songs are driven by someone who has all of the shades of life experience to lean into. This rang true with his 2017 and 2019 awards for Best Live Voice at the National Live Music Awards. His songs have also been placed in the Hollywood production “Adam” starring Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) as well as the new BBC Production “Wakefield”. Colin has also been getting into co-writing with the likes of Rohin Jones (The Middle East) & Tyrone Noonan (George).

Pre 2020 Colin was well on the way to becoming one of Australia’s hardest touring artists supporting the likes of DIESEL, BUSBY MAROU, JAMES REYNE, and THE ANIMALS on their relentless tour schedules and making friends everywhere he went. Colin also performed 5 shows at the 2019 Woodford Folk Festival and made it to New Orleans in early 2020 as part of the Folk Alliance International Festival.

The new album “Shades Of Love” was recorded at Wild Mountain Studios with enigmatic producer Jamie Trevaskis (The Wilson Pickers) and together Colin and Jamie found a darker honesty in his performances than on any previous releases. Colin couldn’t be more proud to be sharing “Shades Of Love”.


“Colin Lillie has been gifted an incredible voice. It’s a voice that has seen him win countless accolades, including nominations for the National Live Music Awards’ ‘Live Voice Of The Year’.” - Scenestr

“With his debut record, Lillie has reached within himself and brought forth something truly special” - The Guardian

“Colin Lillie is a man with a wealth of experiences and the talent to spin them into musical stories” - The Music

“Since the release of acclaimed debut album Glass Homes, Lillie has had a great run, including taking home the first-ever NT Live Voice of the Year. The latest EP Petrichor sees Lillie further embrace his folk sound. The full band is stripped back, showcasing raw vocals and a few flourishes.” - AU Review
