Indigenous to California, Colleen returned to Los Angeles after 4 years of studying abroad in Russia which gradually led to ditching class, touring having a band and dealing in a weird, local MTV channel. She would have to take a break in the indie LA music scene after undergoing bilateral lung surgery due to a genetic respiratory complication. It wasn’t certain that she had have the ability to continue singing. With all the emergence from 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 utilizing 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 by the Name of Girl" (featured on LA Weekly and Champion City’s HiFi mixtape) is alternative folk.
A brief HISTORY OF BLUSH ATTACK
"When that malfunctioning hard disk finally exposed, I re-discovered in regards to a decade of old recordings. Listening through I blushed, rolled my eyes and died several times. Yet some of the songs I feel 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 absolutely was to record the band playing simultaneously. A thrilling collaboration with Xavier Dephrepaulezz of Fantastic Negrito is heard relating to the track, The Pay Is Good, that was recorded at the notorious Blackball Universe (a converted warehouse in South Central that people were once forbidden to visit by my bestfriend’s boyfriend)."
A quick Reputation GIRL Named 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 under the California desert sky, Anna’s guitar, along with a stilted veranda over Pearl Lagoon. I had those places in mind after i chose which songs to record. When I chose to play and sing simultaneously. When I became inclined to sing again after undergoing a surgery that will lead to many years of silence. Girl By The Name of Girl can be a resurgence of the lyrical, lost soul, beach bonfire, hitch hiker, rolling stone, wanderer that may always remain."
