Colin Adams

Contest Coordinator

Colin got his start in contemporary a cappella as a singer in one of Duke University’s mixed groups, Something Borrowed, Something Blue. After developing his recording and production skills by working on two of the group’s albums as a student, he graduated in 2012 and formed Starry Night Studios to bring his passion for a cappella production to a professional level. In the years since, Colin has had the opportunity to work with high school, college, and professional groups across the country. His work has been featured on compilations such as BOHSA, Voices Only, and has been nominated for numerous CARA awards.


In addition to judging for Varsity Vocals competitions, he’s been a part of the planning teams for festivals such as SoJam, Awaazein, Texas A Cappella Celebration, Sing! Texas, and now, acatex. Now based out of Houston, Colin continues to serve as a coach, arranger, producer, and recording engineer for groups around the country. Colin is eager to continue sharing his love of vocal music by helping acatex be the best it can be!
