I am currently managing a new electro soul / pop artist named Collin McLoughlin who has been making some serious noise in the blog world. He is a 23 yr old male singer / songwriter with a ridiculous voice and songwriting ability who is looking for beats to work on his next project. He has opened for Wale, Knaan, Lupe Fiasco, Brother Ali and Fabolous, and recently has been featured recently on all of the college pop music blogs. I will put his bio below, and if you want to hear more of his music visit his website (search collinmcloughlin dot com on google to find the link) or check his facebook fan page which is easy to find on google search also, you guys wont be disappointed. He also has been meeting with several major and indie labels who are waiting in the wings for him to write the so-called "hit," so this is an excellent opportunity for any new producer with serious skill to break into the game hard and fast. Please send any beats / inquiries to email@example.com and I look forward to hearing from you all.
"I have chosen to put the spotlight on Collin because I feel he stands for everything that isn’t fake. Collin McLoughlin’s music and person have a central theme in common, they’re authentic. Not only do I believe in his music, I believe in him as a person. This is what the music industry lacks these days. It’s just a bunch of money hungry label execs looking for a quick buck to make in a slowly dying industry."

For Collin McLoughlin, making music has always been a way to channel his inquisitive nature, to reflect on situations his friends and family are dealing with, and above all else to share these emotions and moments in his life with the people around him. *
Now at 23, Collin is able to share his reflections with a much larger audience. Since beginning work on his first solo project in May, 2010, Collin has toured with Sam Adams, with his first show being at the House of Blues in Boston in front of an audience of 2,500. More recently, Collin has been performing with Kinetics and One Love (writers of “Airplanes” for B.o.B.) and collaborating with them in the studio. Performing live is as natural to Collin as breathing, so being on stage in nothing new. His previous band, Nautical Young, opened for K'naan, Wale, Lupe Fiasco, Fabolous, Brother Ali and Hypercrush during the Spring, 2010 and he’s being doing solo acoustic shows since his teens.
Collin’s soulful voice and realistic lyrics resonate with a broad audience. "Come Back to You" represents the loss of first love and the lingering questions around the break up, even as time has passed.* "Back To the Wall" shares the story of being at a crossroads and passing up the safe, smooth path to follow your passion and embark on the rough and sometimes unforgiving journey, in Collin’s case, pursuing his commitment to music.* Every song he writes is grounded in a real situations and he is constantly inspired by his life's journey and its relation to those around him.*
These universal themes revealed through credible story lines and melodic hooks are layered over toe-tapping, electro-pop rhythms. Collin’s positive, upbeat energy is infectious and resonates through his music, live performances, and his life in total.
Collin is currently recording his solo debut at the famed Downtown Studios in Manhattan with Grammy-winning engineer Jason Goldstein, who has worked with Beyonce, Jay Z, Kanye West, and Michael Jackson.* The album is coming together like chapters of an electrifying memoir that has been waiting to be released. The first few singles released online have received exceptional feedback from the music blogging community.
*“Singing my original material on stage at the House of Blues for 2,500 people was beyond exhilarating. The amazing reception my music received, fans rushing over to meet me, get autographs and take photos, when none of these people had heard any of music before, completely validated my hard work and dedication, and reinforced my intuition that music is and has always been the driving force in my life.” Collin McLoughlin.
