American singer and songwriter, Javier Colón has an estimated net worth of $1.8 million.
He was born Javier Colón in the year 1978 at Stratford, Connecticut to a Dominican father and Puerto Rican mother. Before launching his solo career as a neo-soul singer, Javier Colon logged two years as the lead vocalist of the Derek Trucks Band. He joined the group several weeks after graduating from the University of Hartford, where he performed with a local funk band and played coffee shop gigs as a solo act. Colon recorded two albums for Capitol, both of which were released under his first name only. Javier, his self-titled debut, enjoyed moderate chart success in 2003 with its mix of R&B, neo-soul, and Latin pop. Left of Center followed in 2006 but didn’t fare nearly as well, and Colon was dismissed from Capitol’s roster as a result. He issued his next recording, The Truth: Acoustic EP, on his own label in 2010. One year later, he began competing in The Voice, an NBC.
