Indigenous to California, Colleen returned to Los Angeles after four years of studying abroad in Russia which gradually led to ditching class, touring with a band and at a weird, local MTV channel. She’d be forced to take a rest from your 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 she 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 that are making use of 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 called Girl" (featured on LA Weekly and Champion City’s HiFi mixtape) is alternative folk.
A quick Good reputation for BLUSH ATTACK
"When that malfunctioning hard drive finally opened, I re-discovered with regards to a decade of old recordings. Listening through I blushed, rolled my eyes and died many times. Yet a few of the songs Personally i think still relevant, even definitive of my creative journey. Blush Attack can be a revisitation from the vault favorites. The majority 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. A fantastic collaboration with Xavier Dephrepaulezz of Fantastic Negrito is heard on the track, The Pay Is nice, which was recorded in the notorious Blackball Universe (a converted warehouse in South Central that people were once forbidden to attend by my bestfriend’s boyfriend)."
A brief HISTORY OF GIRL Named GIRL
"This album is definitely an ode to my vagabond years. All of it started summers ago using a pilgrimage to Haifa, a transcontinental train ride in Russia, camping beneath the California desert sky, Anna’s guitar, and a stilted veranda over Pearl Lagoon. I had those places in your mind after 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 will cause years of silence. Girl Named Girl can be a resurgence from the lyrical, lost soul, beach bonfire, hitch hiker, rolling stone, wanderer which will always remain."
