Javier Colon with Ernie Halter at Times Square
Type: Music & Concerts
Blessed with a stunningly soulful voice, uncanny writing ability, and a commanding stage presence, International recording artist Javier Colon has created his own unique style of music that can be described as an eclectic blend of R&B, Folk, Soul, Rock and Country.
A musical prodigy in his formative years, Javier's musical gifts took him to the University of Hartford's Hartt School of Music, where he founded an R&B based acappella quintet that performed at Harlem's legendary Apollo Theater. Javier graduated from Hartt with a degree in Music Education, and soon afterwards he started on his path as a world-class performer as the lead singer for a neo-funk group (called EmCQ) dedicated to the legacy of Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, Maceo Parker and Tower of Power among others. "Being in that band really helped me grow vocally. I had never actually fronted a band or done anything like that before. I found another gear that I could kick into that I didn't know I had," he says.
