Artist Antoine L Collins
Antoine recorded his independently-released debut LP, Somewhere Along The Way, in Tel Aviv, Israel in 2015. With soulful, R&B-inspired takes on traditional standards, including “I Put A Spell On You” and “Sometimes I Feel Like A Motherless Child”, its 2016 title track video gained notice internationally through Queerty as “A Queer Twist On Love And Loss In This Gorgeous Jazz Video.“
Building on his initial creative success, Antoine’s 2018 release of Nature Boy: The Music of Nat King Cole was produced and imaginatively arranged by Phillip Victor Bova. Its independent-release celebrated the legacy of Nat King Cole, a global cultural icon who left an indelible mark on jazz and popular song. In producing the album, Bova assembled a stellar roster of diverse talent to complement Antoine’s warm vocal tones.
Besides Antoine’s recently sold-out vocal performances he has an impressive musical theatre resume which includes: Ragtime, A Chorus Line, RENT, Little Shop of Horrors and Hairspray. Additionally, he is helping to raise awareness for sexual minority refugees in 2018 by donating a portion of the proceeds from live shows and records sales to Capital Rainbow Refugee an Ottawa-based charity providing safe haven in Canada for sexual minority refugees fleeing from dangerous situations around the world.
