Indigenous to California, Colleen returned to L . a . after four years of studying abroad in Russia which gradually resulted in ditching class, touring with a band and with a weird, local MTV channel. She had be required to have a break from the indie LA music scene after undergoing bilateral lung surgery as a result of genetic respiratory complication. It wasn’t sure 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 to the injustices ailing the African-American community and launched an offer #LyricalProtest to unite artists which are using 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 Reputation BLUSH ATTACK
"When that malfunctioning hard drive finally exposed, I re-discovered with regards to a decade of old recordings. Listening through I blushed, rolled my eyes and died several times. Yet a few of the songs I feel still relevant, even definitive of my creative journey. Blush Attack is a revisitation of the vault favorites. A lot of the selects were produced and engineered by Grammy-nominated mastermind, Ghian Wright, whose idea it was to record this guitar rock band playing simultaneously. An exciting collaboration with Xavier Dephrepaulezz of Fantastic Negrito is heard around 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 visit by my bestfriend’s boyfriend)."
A SHORT Reputation GIRL Named GIRL
"This album is definitely an ode to my vagabond years. All of it started summers ago having 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’d those places in mind once i chose which songs to record. After i decided to play and sing simultaneously. Once i became inclined to sing again after having a surgery that would lead to years of silence. Girl Named Girl is a resurgence from the lyrical, lost soul, beach bonfire, hitch hiker, rolling stone, wanderer that will always remain."
