Major Music Ministries

Ask Colyn Major what he loves about his music and ministry and the answer is as comforting and insightful as his songs. 'The music uplifts and energizes,” he enthuses, “I truly believe that my songs bring hope and encouragement to the listener and inspire them to reach upward, forward, and onward toward their true potential. They do more than just create an emotional experience. My music, at its core, is inspiring.'

Colyn Major was destined to sing. He came from a family of seven (six boys and one girl) and began singing at an early age (2-3) during morning and evening family worship with his parents and siblings.
At age three and –a- half Colyn was in a near fatal car accident near a popular beach in The Bahamas when he was struck down by a sports car. He was hospitalized and lost his voice. Family and church members prayed and fasted around the clock. After 2-3 days Colyn opened his eyes, looked into the face of his tearful mother and said: “Mommy, I could sing.” He sang her one of his favorite choruses and he’s been singing ever since.
Colyn has been singing in church choirs since age 10 and in quartets in The Bahamas and other parts of the Caribbean since the age of 12 but his career as a soloist began in 1975 when he returned from pursuing graduate studies at La Sierra University, Riverside, California. 
He is very involved in music as a soloist, chorale member, pianist and organist and sings bass in The Sentinels, an acappella quartet.  He has been a musician for his church for the past 41 years.


Colyn Major, the second son of Stanley and Dr. Ruby Major, was born in Nassau, The Bahamas August 10, 1953, began piano lessons at age 8 and started playing for church services when he was 12. He also learned to play the cello and string bass while completing his high school education in Jamaica, West Indies. 
As an Independent Artist, Colyn is free from having to conform to worldly images for the purpose of advertising and sales and has creative  freedom when it comes to song selection and production.
A talented vocalist, pianist, arranger, and composer, Colyn has literally been involved in music all his life.   His diverse style ranges from the “meditative/reflective/introspective” to the “expressive”.  He has a soothing baritone voice that calms the souls and minds of the listeners and is grateful for the opportunities God has afforded his ministry.
A native of the Caribbean, Colyn Major is an Independent Recording Artist with an active music ministry. His style can be described as Inspirational-Contemporary Christian Music, with selections varying in style, from the meditative/reflective to the soulful. He is frequently invited to perform at worship services, weddings, concerts and special events.


Colyn’s debut solo releases, “His Kingdom First", "Made In Your Image" and "We Are Restored” (2007), include several songs by Joe Tomlinson, a few favorite hymns and eleven original compositions. The songs for these albums were chosen because they help the listener to reflect upon the importance of making your relationship with God your first priority. In 2009 Colyn released his fourth album entitled "Hymns Etc." which was a collection of familiar hymns and contemporary songs. He is currently working on his fifth CD to be released before year’s end 2010. This latest project will be a compilation of all original songs.
Throughout his albums he shares production credits with Jake Snyder. In addition to his regular appearances at concerts, worship services and special events, Colyn has sung for international audiences in Canada, the United States and the Caribbean. 
Through his music, he hopes to motivate and inspire his listeners into a deeper relationship with their creator and help them fulfill their potential. His ultimate goal is to use his gifts and talents to glorify God and to influence others to do the same.
He is the father of one son, Devin and is married to the former Linda E. Woodside.
