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 two Shades Of Love, released in 2021.
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 prouder to be sharing Shades of Love with Port Fairy Folk Festival audiences.
