    Indigenous to California, Colleen returned to L . a . after 4 years of studying abroad in Russia which gradually led to ditching class, touring using a band and with a weird, local MTV channel. She had be forced 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 she had 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 a campaign #LyricalProtest to unite artists which can be making use of their platform similarly. The LA Singer-Songwriter released back to back 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 brief Good reputation for BLUSH ATTACK

    "When that malfunctioning hard drive finally opened up, 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 I feel still relevant, even definitive of my creative journey. Blush Attack can be a revisitation of the vault favorites. A lot of the selects were produced and engineered by Grammy-nominated mastermind, Ghian Wright, whose idea it had been to record the band playing simultaneously. A thrilling collaboration with Xavier Dephrepaulezz of Fantastic Negrito is heard on the track, The Pay Is great, which was recorded at the notorious Blackball Universe (a converted warehouse in South Central that individuals were once forbidden to attend by my bestfriend’s boyfriend)."

    A SHORT HISTORY OF GIRL Named GIRL

    "This album is an ode to my vagabond years. Everything started summers ago using a pilgrimage to Haifa, a transcontinental train ride in Russia, camping beneath the California desert sky, Anna’s guitar, along with a stilted veranda over Pearl Lagoon. I had those places at heart after i chose which songs to record. When I decided to play and sing simultaneously. When I became inclined to sing again after having a surgery that might lead to many years of silence. Girl Named Girl can be a resurgence of the lyrical, lost soul, beach bonfire, hitch hiker, rolling stone, wanderer which will always remain."
