Originally from North Gower, Ontorio, this musical force came out of nowhere with his unofficial remix/response to Kanye West’s Flashing Lights. The music producer and singer/songwriter originally gained his ground while attending university in Toronto. Collaborating with known Canadian R&B/Soul artists to the likes of Divine Brown and Glenn Lewis. This experience led the way to co-writing and producing 10 songs on Ray Robinson’s Juno-nominated album, What it Is.
His latest mixtape Unsung Hero, features collaborations with nearly every underground rapper around.
Unsung Hero leads with the relentlessly upbeat Will I Stay Remix, a song whose bouncing percussion and bright harmonies are at first blush pure pop. That’s until Wale jumps on the mic for a playful verse, followed closely by contributions from super-producer/singer Dallas Austin. It’s a 21st century update of 80’s punkers The Clash’s Should I Stay or Should I Go, only where The Clash snarled Munroe only smiles. If Stay were the only song on Unsung Hero it’d be easy to peg Munroe as disposable pop, but then you’d have to ignore tracks like Piano Lessons. Produced by Jay Dilla protégé Black Milk, Piano Lessons is a somberly paced track built on Munroe’s everyman voice and a chorus comprised of the decidedly un-swagger, “Don’t bet on me, I’m a long shot.” By the time Brooklyn’s finest rapper, Joell Ortiz jumps aboard for a typically dope verse we feel like we’re beginning to get a grip on Munroe’s music: Take a pop foundation, add some electronic production and a guest rapper, and bingo, you’ve got a Colin Munroe song.
