Bio Music Contact
Colleen grew up in Chinook, Montana. Her parents performed in a country western band where her dad played guitar, her mom played bass, and their vocals created magical harmonies. Her mother reports that Colleen carried a tune before she spoke her first words.

Colleen moved to New York City in 1991 with a degree in theatre. She eventually joined a band, called Sweetgrass. When the band recorded a CD with their original music, it was mixed and mastered by, the legendary sound engineer, Jay Messina. It was love at first sight when Colleen and Jay met in the studio. The band disbanded shortly after the CD release party, and Colleen is deeply grateful that this recording project brought Jay into her life. Colleen and Jay were married in July 2008.

Some of Colleen's songs are inspired by her friends Ariel & Shya Kane, the award-winning authors and internationally acclaimed seminar leaders.

Colleen enjoys writing music, singing songs, and recording with her husband in their Manhattan studio.
