Singer, songwriter and actor Colin Roy began his career in London West End theatre after being spotted by Pippa Ailion, currently the casting director of The Lion King.
Colin’s love and natural talent for music was strongly encouraged by his late father and after penning a hit single played on Capitol Radio, the dream became a reality. From starring in a musical at the Riverside Studios in Hammersmith and now with a wealth of experience as an international entertainer, as they say, the best is yet to come.
