Director: George Vale, 2009
What does a home-schooled white farmboy know about making urban music? For wunderkid pop music maker Colin Munroe, not all that much. Until answering a classified ad by a scam artist led to a series of encounters with Toronto's urban music stars at Revival - a bar and live music venue where the city's hip-hop and R&B scene was thriving. The curious newcomer was soon working with Revival regulars like Saukrates, Glenn Lewis and Divine Brown, which brought him rapid success as a writer/producer. But it was watching singers get up on stage at Revival's open mic nights that inspired Colin to start writing and performing material for himself. Colin's first track, his interpretation of a Kanye West song, caused a global net sensation. Now signed to Motown Records for his own highly anticipated debut album, Colin returns to Revival to retrace his evolution from behind the scenes to centre stage.
