What a lovely time we had chatting to Colet Selwyn and hearing him sing his sincere and heartfelt versions of gospel favourites, Just a Closer Walk With Thee [at 13’10 minutes in to the podcast] and The Old Rugged Cross [36’14]. You can come back anytime, young man!
Colet’s début last year on the Voice UK in 2016 prompted Boy George to call the young bass singer’s voice a ‘beautiful contradiction.’ At the Gaither Vocal Band recording in 2017 Colet described meeting his musical heroes in that ‘magical’ moment while wowing his fellow singers with rich, deep tones in ‘This Ole House’. His voice has carried him all over the world; from palaces in India, royal concert halls in the UK to Wild West cowboy churches in the USA. When he finally comes home from whirlwind tours, you can find Colet helping out at his local church in Scotland.
