Collin Marrero~ Singer, Songwriter

Collin Marrero, who grew up in Bristol, Connecticut has been singing for a long time, since about the time he was 8 years old. Through the years he sang and acted, got the lead in a play in high school as a freshmen and that eventually lead to his professional music career on the stage of the Connecticut Cabaret Theatre. You couldn’t meet a nicer guy. We chatted over coffee and a cinnamon roll in Chester, Connecticut about his music.

Marrero, a singer, songwriter and lyricist is now 30 and has just come out with his first album called “No Limits.” There is a lot of passion in this music. Who are his influences? Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Aretha Franklin, he loves gospel, and on the pop side, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys, and Mariah Carey.

Marrero is also passionate about promoting children’s theatre, in a program called “Starmakers.” The focus behind it he says is to build confidence. Kids get to rehearse and take part in a full stage production which he writes and produces.

I hope Marrero has “no limits” and that he hits the big time so that I and Connecticut can say we knew him when. Check out his website and learn more about Marrero.
