Indigenous to California, Colleen returned to L . a . after 4 years of studying abroad in Russia which gradually triggered ditching class, touring using a band and dealing in a weird, local MTV channel. She had be forced to have a break from the indie LA music scene after undergoing bilateral lung surgery because of a genetic respiratory complication. It wasn’t sure she would be able to continue singing. With the emergence with the Black Lives Matter Movement, Colleen knew they must break her silence. She started by recording songs that spoke to the injustices ailing the African-American community and launched an offer #LyricalProtest to unite artists which can be utilizing their platform similarly. The LA Singer-Songwriter released consecutive album EPs in 2017. Her January release "Blush Attack" (featured on Afropunk.com) is categorized as Indie Rock while her mid-summer release "Girl by the Name of Girl" (featured on LA Weekly and Champion City’s HiFi mixtape) is alternative folk.
A quick Good reputation for BLUSH ATTACK
"When that malfunctioning hard disk drive finally exposed, I re-discovered in regards to a decade of old recordings. Listening through I blushed, rolled my eyes and died repeatedly. Yet a few of the songs Personally i think still relevant, even definitive of my creative journey. Blush Attack is a revisitation with the vault favorites. The majority of the selects were produced and engineered by Grammy-nominated mastermind, Ghian Wright, whose idea it had been to record this guitar rock band playing simultaneously. A fantastic collaboration with Xavier Dephrepaulezz of Fantastic Negrito is heard relating to the track, The Pay Is Good, that was recorded in the notorious Blackball Universe (a converted warehouse in South Central that we were once forbidden to visit by my bestfriend’s boyfriend)."
A brief Good reputation for GIRL Named GIRL
"This album is surely an ode to my vagabond years. It all started summers ago with a pilgrimage to Haifa, a transcontinental train ride in Russia, camping underneath the California desert sky, Anna’s guitar, along with a stilted veranda over Pearl Lagoon. I’d those places in mind once i chose which songs to record. Once i decided to play and sing simultaneously. Once i became inclined to sing again after undergoing a surgery that might lead to many years of silence. Girl Named Girl is a resurgence of the lyrical, lost soul, beach bonfire, hitch hiker, rolling stone, wanderer that will always remain."
