In conjunction with the release of his 16th studio album, Hearts On Fire, Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame inductee Colin James will embark on his first cross Canada tour since 2012. Full list of dates below.

Hearts On Fire, which will be released on February 3 via Universal Music Canada, was co-produced by Colin James and long-time collaborator Colin Linden (ABC’s Nashville). The album was recorded at House of Blues in Nashville, TN and Magic Ten Studios in Vancouver, BC.

“Making this record with my good friend Colin Linden with such a fantastic veteran rhythm section was an amazing experience. The majority of the recording was done in Nashville during a stretch of warm spring weather so every time I hear the songs I feel like I’m right back in The South. I hope my fans enjoy listening to this record as much as we all enjoyed making it.” – Colin James

The lead single, “Just a Little Love” was recorded in Nashville, TN. The song features a stellar line-up of musicians that includes; George Receli (drums and percussion), Willie Weeks (bass), Reese Wynan (keyboards), Colin Linden (guitar) and Ann & Regina McCrary (backup vocals).

Special for the coming holiday season Colin has written and recorded a brand new track “By December” that will be serviced to radio and available as a separate digital single December 09 that will not be included on the new album.

Colin James has won six Juno Awards including “Male Vocalist of the Year” and the “Best Producer” award for his efforts with The Little Big Band. He is the recipient of 17 Maple Blues Awards having most recently been honored in 2013 with “Entertainer of the Year”.
