From the day Colby Dobbs brought home his first piano after stumbling upon it listed in a local classified, he hasn’t stopped playing! Being influenced by the music of greats such as Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, Michael McDonald, and Billy Joel, Colby has quickly gained a reputation for being one of the most talented, polished, and unique sounding artists in the area.
Colby, a native Charlottean, settled into various day jobs after high school, but never quite felt as though that was his calling. It wasn’t until Colby decided to pursue his passion for music that things really took off. After spending a few years writing, in 2012 Colby released an album of original material entitled “The Great Unknown” which received rave reviews from critics citing its unique blend of styles such as soul, R&B, pop, and jazz.
Colby is known for his distinct, clear, crisp, high-reaching vocals, as well as his mature approach to playing the piano. Whether it be a wine tasting, a corporate party, a wedding, or a restaurant gig, Colby can provide the appropriate mix of music at a very listenable volume level to make any event a success. If the gig calls for a bit fuller sound – no problem! Colby works with many other professional musicians in the area and can put together whatever sort of configuration necessary to fulfill the needs of a client.
