Native to California, Colleen returned to La after 4 years of studying abroad in Russia which gradually led to ditching class, touring having a band and at a weird, local MTV channel. She would be required to have a break from the indie LA music scene after undergoing bilateral lung surgery due to a genetic respiratory complication. It wasn’t certain that she’d be capable of continue singing. With all the emergence with the Black Lives Matter Movement, Colleen knew they must break her silence. She started by recording songs that spoke towards the injustices ailing the African-American community and launched a campaign #LyricalProtest to unite artists which 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 called Girl" (featured on LA Weekly and Champion City’s HiFi mixtape) is alternative folk.
A quick HISTORY OF 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 some of the songs Personally i think still relevant, even definitive of my creative journey. Blush Attack is really a revisitation with the vault favorites. The majority of the selects were produced and engineered by Grammy-nominated mastermind, Ghian Wright, whose idea it absolutely was to record this guitar rock band playing simultaneously. An exciting collaboration with Xavier Dephrepaulezz of Fantastic Negrito is heard on the track, The Pay Is nice, which was recorded at the notorious Blackball Universe (a converted warehouse in South Central that we were once forbidden to visit by my bestfriend’s boyfriend)."
A quick HISTORY OF GIRL BY THE NAME OF GIRL
"This album is surely an ode to my vagabond years. Everything started summers ago with a pilgrimage to Haifa, a transcontinental train ride in Russia, camping underneath the California desert sky, Anna’s guitar, and a stilted veranda over Pearl Lagoon. I’d those places in your mind when I chose which songs to record. After i chose to play and sing simultaneously. After i became inclined to sing again after undergoing a surgery that would lead to numerous years of silence. Girl Named Girl is a resurgence from the lyrical, lost soul, beach bonfire, hitch hiker, rolling stone, wanderer which will always remain."
