Nick Colionne is one of the hottest Jazz Guitarist/Vocalists around. He has been described as "one of the most exceptional performers to come along on the jazz scene in a long time" and BET calls him “an emerging jazz giant.” Colionne’s most recent 10 singles have each achieved Top Ten on all major national/international charts, with his latest cd release "Feel The Heat" contributing three more Top Ten hits.
Colionne was honored with the prestigious 2007 International Instrumentalist Artist of the Year Award by The Wave in Canada, and was nominated for same again in 2009. He was nominated as Entertainer of The Year and Guitarist of The Year by The American Smooth Jazz Awards and was named Humanitarian of The Year.
These days the Chicago-born and still-residing guitarist tours all over the world but always finds time to work with and mentor children. Nick Colionne’s sustained chart-topping Radio history, along with his incredible live performances, has propelled him to the upper echelons of smooth jazz stardom.
