Colin Elmore of Willow Springs, MO, began writing and performing at a very young age. Elmore grew up on the road, traveling the Midwest performing southern gospel music with his parents. His family roots run deep in music with his 89 year old grandfather still performing after 60 years in the same gospel quartet, and his late great uncle “Cowboy Calvin,” an Arizona desert tour guide/country troubadour.
Upon moving to Nashville, Elmore joined forces with his soon-to-be band, The Danville Train, in which Colin fronts lead vocals. In 2016, Colin Elmore and the Danville Train signed a developmental record deal with Sony Entertainment, as well as booking contract with WME. Shortly thereafter, Colin inked a publishing deal with Wrensong/Reynsong Entertainment and Patrick Finch Music Publishing. Colin is the newest addition to the Wrensong Entertainment family, and a perfect fit for the company’s diverse roster.
Said John Dillon of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils: 'Colin Elmore is a songwriter who has an uncanny ability to tap the fuel of all good poetry: love, life, and the land. His lyrics are full of mystery and beauty, and his studied attention to melody and metaphor make his songs resonate with truth as deep as the roots of some old Missouri oak.'
Says President of Wrensong/Reynsong Entertainment, Ree Guyer, “When I first heard Colin’s songs and voice, I loved him immediately…seeing him live put me over the top. He is a true artist.”
Pat Finch adds, ”Colin is one of the most uniquely gifted writer/artists I’ve ever had the honor of working with. Add to that, he’s a generous and loving person AND to get to travel this journey with two dear friends, Ree and Abbe, is just icing on the cake! I couldn't be more excited!"
Colin is currently dividing his time between songwriting and recording material for his debut EP set for a 2017 release.
