A communal gathering of virtuoso musicians from all walks of life coming together in unison for the common cause of creating and performing the highest level of original music ever created.
Lead by virtuoso producer, pianist, songwriter and composer, Bryan Wagstaff, Collusion redefines the “original band.”
Wagstaff brings together best in class musicians performing at a level never before seen nor heard.
Collusion’s original works combine Wagstaff’s classical music/jazz piano roots with an original songwriting team that includes Jeremy Pollack and Reid Miller coupled with world-class musicians colluding together to create a new original sound.
I was born in San Salvador, Central America. Eventually, civil war in my country forced me to move to the United States. I uncovered my passion for music amongst the sounds of bullets, violence, psychological-emotional unbalance and travelling. At 16, I learned how to play the guitar by ear, and from that point on, I was involved in bands, and song writing.
The street beats of Los Angeles and late night Hollywood scene is where I currently live and perform. Destiny brought me to California. I write my lyrics and produce my songs in my studio. I love collaborating with other artists and experimenting with different genres of music. I find inspiration all around me. I try to make my music representative of myself and my generation. Every song I write is related to a personal experience, a moment in my life, that at some point another person can relate to when they go through a similar moment.
A well-known band formed in Boulder known as the Samples, is back with Highway 50! The Samples came together as a band when Al Laughlin introduced himself to his soon to be bandmates at a frat party on The Hill. The Samples became well-known quickly, as they were signed with Arista Records and even touring with The Wailers. After all their success, Laughlin separated from the Samples and took some time away from Colorado. Laughlin is now back with his new band Highway 50 and gigging all across the Front Range. Highway 50 is a blend of rock, reggae, ska and splashes of R&B, pop and even hints of hip-hop. Their invigorating sound is not like anything else.
Playing NYC clubs as a guitarist throughout his life, Geoff Grayson founded a popular local band, scored a publishing deal, then a major label record deal and produced his first album, only to have it shelved due to a quickly changing music business. Geoff grew disillusioned by the drama of the business and decided to take a sabbatical.
Years later, now living in Boulder CO, he was handed an electric guitar at a late night party and the excitement came roaring back. Getting back into live performances, he was invited out for a string of acoustic shows across the US by Todd Kerns [Solo artist and Bassist for Slash]
Since 2016, Geoff has written dozens of original songs. As of January, a brand new band is coming together with exciting new players. Updates soon.
