Colton started out as a cocky guitar upstart, diving deep into the explosive traditions of virtuosos Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton. Exploring that music led him further down that road, all the way to blues legend Robert Johnson. Colton went on to record an EP of Johnson’s songs, the critically acclaimed The Robert Johnson Sessions.
After paying his dues in countless bars and coffee houses, Colton had a career-altering encounter with acclaimed producer Blake English (George Benson, Jennifer Lopez) at an informal studio jam. Impressed by Colton’s chops, English recruited Colton for session work and eventually produced The Robert Johnson Sessions.
