Kings and Long Lost Treasures
Country Blues Master does it all Online!

Creates Musical World on the Web
"At ten years old Chet Atkins taught me
my first chords on the guitar and since that
day I've never stopped playing."
Not many other musicians can say that - and
for C W Colt it was just the beginning of an
incredible musical career that has included
working with the likes of Waylon Jennings,
Jimmy Buffett and Patsy Montana.
Now the Caribbean country blues master is
bringing live music directly into your home
via the Internet. Every Wednesday and Friday 7
PM EST, he can be watched by logging on to
www.cwcolt.com. C W is an independent artist
who has discovered a way of bringing his
vision to a worldwide audience.
Viewers can directly interact with C W during
his performance, which will feature a number
of special guests. C W says, "I am
immensely excited about broadening people's
understanding of country and blues using the
Internet, rather than being force-fed a few
songs endorsed by the few major labels."
Listeners who log on will hear cuts from C W
Colt's new album, Cowboys, Kings and Long Lost
Treasures, the third insta llment in a 12-CD
project called "Legends and
Treasures." The CD is already in the top
100 in spins and two cuts from the CD are
getting noticed. "The Best Thing"
recently hit the #1 spot of the top 40
Independent country songs in the USA charts,
and "On a Train" is in the top 50 of
the International ECMA charts.
The album was recorded in Nashville, and was
co-produced with Herb Shucher and Lance Dary
from Randy Travis' band. These remarkable
songs are inspired by C W's troubadour life,
telling tales of love, loss, and adventure.
Appropriately, the album cover features
kindred-spirit Bert Kilbride, treasure hunter
of the British Virgin Islands and regarded by
many as a real life pirate of the Caribbean.
Other featured legends are Mel Fisher, Captain
Tony, Chief James Billie and Sonny Landreth.
C W has received his fair share of critical
plaudits through the years for his live shows
and recording career:
is no doubt he knows what to do with a banjo
or guitar in his hand, flashing streaks of
brilliance at times."
Bill Jackson, Tribune
"His style is a wonderful blend of island
spirit and country sensibility."
The Newspaper, Key West
"Colt's unique sound is a jumpy and
jazzy, funky and folksy mix of musical styles
that's ideal for his milieu."
C W Colt
C W Colt started his first band in San
Antonio, Texas in 1963. As a military
dependent he traveled with his father, often
living in exotic countries and always
performing everywhere he went.
After time spent entertaining troops in
Southeast Asia, he relocated to Colorado and
mastered the banjo and fiddle. In his
twenties, C W worked on "The America the
Beautiful Show" in Nashville at Marty
Robbin's studio, and in his thirties began
working with such legendary figures as Alvin
Lee, Bo Diddley, Hank Thompson and Patsy
Montana. He also appeared in Jim Carrey's
first film, Copper Mountain.
Since moving to Florida, he has come into his
own as a solo artist. Compiling forty years of
original songwriting, he has set sail on this
musical odyssey that is the Legends and
When completed, the 12 CDs will come with a
treasure chest, and all will have legendary
explorers and adventurers decorating the front
covers. All of C W's life experiences, talent
and vision have coalesced into this project.
C W's attitude to his music is summed up well
by the man himself, "I want to take
someone's mind off their troubles for a few
seconds, or maybe help them get through life
with something I have written."
