As with most musicians and artists Colin is a deeply spiritual person drawing on life and its meaning to inspire his creativity. He is a committed Christian and uses these beliefs to try and make a difference both to his own personal life and those around him. Never seeking to "preach" he prefers to do his best to uphold his beliefs through his lifestyle and through the community in which he lives. The influence this has on his creativity is to comment and reflect this spirituality in his music be it his songwriting or instrumental compositions. Sometimes this is through worship material for his church some of which is published in songbooks, and others through more conventioanl commentaries on life (both its beauty and its sadness).
