Indigenous to California, Colleen returned to La after 4 years of studying abroad in Russia which gradually triggered ditching class, touring having a band and dealing with a weird, local MTV channel. She would be forced to take a rest in 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 for the injustices ailing the African-American community and launched a campaign #LyricalProtest to unite artists that are using their platform similarly. The LA Singer-Songwriter released continual album EPs in 2017. Her January release "Blush Attack" (featured on Afropunk.com) is categorized as Indie Rock while her mid-summer release "Girl named Girl" (featured on LA Weekly and Champion City’s HiFi mixtape) is alternative folk.
A SHORT Good reputation for BLUSH ATTACK
"When that malfunctioning hard drive finally exposed, I re-discovered about a decade of old recordings. Listening through I blushed, rolled my eyes and died several times. Yet some of the songs Personally i think still relevant, even definitive of my creative journey. Blush Attack is a revisitation from 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 thrilling collaboration with Xavier Dephrepaulezz of Fantastic Negrito is heard relating to the track, The Pay Is nice, that was recorded on the notorious Blackball Universe (a converted warehouse in South Central that we were once forbidden to go to by my bestfriend’s boyfriend)."
A brief Good reputation for GIRL BY THE NAME OF GIRL
"This album is an ode to my vagabond years. It all started summers ago using a pilgrimage to Haifa, a transcontinental train ride in Russia, camping under the California desert sky, Anna’s guitar, plus a stilted veranda over Pearl Lagoon. I needed those places in your mind once i chose which songs to record. After i decided to play and sing simultaneously. When I became inclined to sing again after undergoing a surgery that might cause numerous years of silence. Girl By The Name of Girl is a resurgence of the lyrical, lost soul, beach bonfire, hitch hiker, rolling stone, wanderer which will always remain."
