Colin Clyne is a local singer-songwriter. A native of Stonehaven, Scotland, Colin Clyne recently ended a 10 year stay in California. He is now based here with a sizeable following from both UK & USA.

More recently, Colin was named by NBC San Diego as one of San Diego’s top 12 Singer Songwriters in amongst an elite list which featured Jewel, Tom Waits and the late Jim Croce.

In 2014 Clyne returned with new album 'The Never Ending Pageant'. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Grammy award winning Engineer Alan Sanderson at San Francisco’s legendary Hyde Street Studio. Clyne's latest offering was released in July 2014 through one of Scotland's leading indie record label ‘Fat Hippy'.

'Pageant' garnered both critical and chart success, and was heralded by STV as a 'truly stunning collection of songs' and The Sun as 'a glorious selection of country rock numbers'. Regardless of genre, Colin Clyne’s music has a special sound, which touch's the heart and lifts the spirit.
