Short Bio

Colin Sankey is a bass player, composer, and arranger from Vancouver, BC. Compared to Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, and Alain Caron, his use of extended techniques, such as tapping and harmonics, creates lush harmonies and infectious grooves that sound almost orchestral in nature.

He has been featured in collaborations with musicians from across the Americas, including YouTube bass sensation Charles Berthoud, and was the 2nd place winner of the 2021 BITE Bass Contest (worldwide). He has performed with JUNO winner Hugh Fraser and JUNO nominee Francois Houle and been featured on the premier jazz transcription channel of YouTube curated by George Collier. Colin is currently recording his first solo album, funded by FACTOR Canada.

Colin recently went viral on TikTok with his bass battle against Charles Berthoud, getting over 1.5 million views. He is now sharing his inspiring arrangements of popular, jazz, and classical music with his 23,000+ followers, and remains active on Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube.
