Colin Stetson performs 'Judges'

 

"He has formidable breath control and circular breathing technique, a great sense of dynamics, and extremely impressive control over multiphonics and timbral changes (Sean Westergard)
 

Michigan native Colin Stetson is like the Roger Federer of avant-garde instrumental music. While the Swiss tennis player has changed the way we think of tennis, Stetson is redefining the possibilities of woodwind and brass instruments" (Alex Green)

 

Colin Stetson was born and raised in Ann Arbor, MI and earned a degree in music from his hometown school, the University of Michigan, in 1997.  Six years in San Francisco followed, then another four in Brooklyn, NY. Over this time, he developed his unique solo voice on saxophones and clarinets, culminating  in the release of the album New History Warfare Vol. 1″ on Agoo Records in 2008.

Stetson now resides in Montreal, QC, and performs regularly on assorted saxophones, clarinets, cornet, french horn and flute.

His latest solo record New History Warfare Vol. 2: Judges” was released Feb. 22, 2011 on Constellation.

Aside from his work as a soloist, Stetson has brought his talents to the stage and studio with dozens of artists over the past decade, including Tom Waits, Arcade Fire, TV on the Radio, Feist, Laurie Anderson, Lou Reed, David Byrne, Jolie Holland, Sinead O’Connor, LCD Soundsystem, The National, Angelique Kidjo, and Anthony Braxton.

Colin is a current member of the band Bon Iver, who will be touring in support of their new record in 2011, on which he also appears.
