When Colton began playing a digital keyboard at the age of three, his family realized he had a gift and sought out formal training for him. Although Ms. Linda Fletcher and Ms. Sherry Tester both “taught” him to read music, the training never resonated with him. To this day, although he is known for his amazing talent on the piano, he does not read music. Instead, he has a keen sense of relative pitch allowing him to listen to a song and play it back, strictly by ear, moments later. The evolution of Colton’s musical journey has been influenced by an extensive list of pianists including Floyd Cramer, Ray Charles, Jeff Little, Tchaikovsky, Art Tatum, Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, and many more. As a result, his style reflects any or all of these inspirations. Presently, Colton is very interested in jazz piano and the endless creative technical opportunities it offers. During the last decade, Colton has played on Sundays at his home church, Dyson Grove Baptist Church.In addition to that, he’s the resident pianist for the Tri-Cities Jazz Orchestra. Though he can’t write them down on paper, Colton has written a number of original works for piano and stashed them away in his brain (in addition to recording them in his studio for safekeeping). Colton is currently enrolled at ETSU seeking a M.A. in Brand & Media Strategy and works as a Graduate Assistant in the Alumni office where he serves as their digital media content creator and social media manager.
