ABOUT

Full Biography: Joey Collins is a singer, songwriter and producer that crafted his musical roots in the Nottingham/Derby music scene with the alternative rock band 'Saturn Ascend'. Fronting the band for a number of years allowed plenty of songwriting and live performance experience from an early age and since the hiatus of the band, he has since ventured into a busy solo career.

His music has been described by critics for "rocking a low-key, Kurt Cobain sound with a hint of Jeff Buckley soul." - Leftlion

"If the key to prolonged success is diversity, then Joey Collins will be a name everyone will know for years to come." - Musik Magazine

"With a range of influences from Jeff Buckley to Thom Yorke, Joey Collins' 'Requiem' has a mature and melancholic tone that sends shivers down your spine." - BBC Introducing

He has since played all over the country with a range of festivals, headline shows and support slots - notably in established venues such as; 02 Academy Islington, Rescue Rooms, The Bodega, Proud Camden, The Hope & Anchor, Camden Assembly, The Troubadour and many more...

Another highlight was a performance for BalconyTV in Vienna performing his song ‘Life Goes On…’.
