Singer Javier Colon has a net worth of $1.8 million. In addition to his net worth, he earned the adulation of millions of TV viewers during his stint on NBC's singing competition The Voice. Even before The Voice, however, Colon had a career as a singer that many young musicians would kill for, with a recording contract followed by his own eponymous record label. Colon's career began as a high school student, when he began writing songs in his free time. He then began pursuing a degree in music at the University of Hartford, where he performed as both a drummer and vocalist in EmcQ, a soul-funk band heavily influenced by musician Stevie Wonder. From there, Colon ended up acing an audition for a new lead singer for The Derek Trucks Band, with which he toured for about 2 years. After that, Colon embarked on a solo career, releasing albums through a recording contract with Capitol Records. After releasing more music under his own independent label, Colon appeared as a contestant on The Voice in 2011, on which he went on to be the show's inaugural winner. It's not known exactly where Colon's $100,000 recording contract that he won on the show will take him, but he clearly has the chops to be a successful recording artist.
Javier Colon (alternately styled Javier Col'on, born April 29, 1978) is an American singer and songwriter. He has referred to his style of music as being "acoustic soul." He was a member of EmcQ and The Derek Trucks Band, and worked with many musicians before going solo. From 2002 to 2006, he was signed to Capitol Records, known as artist Javier. But in 2006, the contract was terminated and Javier Colon became an independent artist with his own label, Javier Colon Music. In 2011, he was the winner of the inaugural season of the U.S. television show on NBC, The Voice, receiving $100,000 and signing a recording contract with Universal Republic Records.
Colon was born in Stratford, Connecticut, the son of a Dominican father and Puerto Rican mother,. His father worked in a radio station. He went to Frank Scott Bunnell High School in Stratford, Connecticut, where he started writing songs. Then he pursued a degree in music education from the University of Hartford's Hartt School. While studying, Javier also performed as vocalist and percussionist in EmcQ, a soul/funk band led by lead guitarist Ian McHugh and mainly dedicated to the legacy of Stevie Wonder.
When EmcQ opened a show for the soul-jazz trio Soulive, the group's guitarist, Eric Krasno, was impressed by Javier's vocals and recommended him to his friend Derek Trucks, who he knew was looking for a lead vocalist for The Derek Trucks Band. Following his college graduation and a successful audition in July 2000, Javier joined the band in August 2000.
After touring with the band for nearly two years, Javier, then 24 years old, left the band in April 2002 to pursue a solo career, having been signed by Capitol Records. He went on to release two albums with Capitol Records, the first the self-titled Javier in 2003, and the second entitled Left of Center in 2006.
Since parting ways with Capitol Records, Javier has performed with such diverse acts as Joss Stone, Darius Rucker, the Indigo Girls, Stevie Nicks, Ad
