Anybody who follows Collin C-Storm on TikTok knows that it was his skills at the piano that skyrocketed him to stardom on the platform. That may not be the only thing he’s known for, but the piano has certainly been the stepping stone for his career. Collin – hailing from Knoxville – is a marketing major at the University of Tennessee, growing up to be a creative multitasker who studies, creates fun content, and gives his followers something new on a regular basis.
As easy as it seems to tickle the ivory keys, it wasn’t that way for Collin’s social media journey. He started it by posting videos on Youtube, gaining virtually no recognition for the first five years. But when he began to make tutorials on how to play the instrument on TikTok, he started getting people’s attention.
TikTok has seen a meteoric rise over the last couple of months in the public domain, giving several creators like Collin their big break to fame. Their talent and hard work eventually paid off on the platform, if nowhere else.
Playing the piano is a timeless art, being kept alive by prodigies like Collin. But while that may have been how he started, he has since diversified his content and shows the audience different aspects of his life – be it adventurous thrills, hilarious pranks, or just something menial from his day that he’d like to share.
Age is just a number to Collin, and he is a big dreamer who never shies away from experimenting. By opting for creativity over an orthodox nine-to-five, Collin wishes to live life freely and on his terms. He wants to be financially independent while doing what he loves – creating fun content and sharing it online.
Unstoppable in his pursuit of success and fame, he now has more than 2.8 million followers on TikTok and a total of one billion views across his media channels. From what it looks like, this follower count will only multiply in the future. We suppose Beethoven would wish he was alive in 2022 and had a TikTok to amass followers the way Collin is. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors!
