History

Colleen spent her childhood in Lloydminster, on the border of Saskatchewan and Alberta. Upon moving to Edmonton, she studied music at Grant MacEwan College in the Vocal Performance Program. Upon graduating she sang and danced in the now defunct Kit Kat Club a large show-band that covered music of the 60's 70's and 80's, and began playing bass and singing in the all female rock band The Secretaries.

Music

In 2004, she released her first full-length album A Peculiar Thing. The album was funded by Colleen and contained all new music.[1]

Her second album Foot In Heart was released in 2008. It became the number 2 Folk/Roots/Blues album in Canada on !earshot (the Canadian national college/community radio chart) and spent 6 weeks in the top 10.[2] It was later re-released on Emm Gryner's label Dead Daisy Records in 2010.

As well as a skilled pianist, Colleen has branched out to embrace other instruments in her performances, notably electric guitar and bass. She credits this and working with her backing band as helping her to develop and refine her songwriting abilities.[3]

Brown is currently working on a full length album collaborating with Edmonton based artists Scenic Route To Alaska and Jesse and the Dandelions.
