Colin Rigsby, who has been playing drums since the age of 12, took a stab at civilian life following more than a decade of writing, recording, and touring the world with his band House of Heroes, but it didn't take very well. What started out as a remedy for restlessness, however, soon developed into a full-blown passion and the beginnings of Rigsby's new solo project--Vesperteen. Within a few months of going solo Rigsby had penned a new batch of songs that would become Vesperteen 2015 self-titled debut. After a successful transition into the live realm, Vesperteen started touring and has yet to stop. Traveling to perform his signature brand of alt-pop reminiscent of bands like Bleachers and The 1975 for his passionate and dedicated fanbase, Vesperteen has sold out shows across the map in North America and Europe. With only one EP and a few singles released, Vesperteen has already garnered over 2 million Spotify streams and 50,000 followers among social media platforms, all as an independent artist.
