LA Indie Artist to Watch [Colleen Lovejoy]



  • Native to California, Colleen returned to L . a . after 4 years of studying abroad in Russia which gradually resulted in ditching class, touring with a band and at a weird, local MTV channel. She had have to have a break from your indie LA music scene after undergoing bilateral lung surgery as a result of genetic respiratory complication. It wasn’t sure she would be able 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 for the injustices ailing the African-American community and launched an offer #LyricalProtest to unite artists that are utilizing 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 SHORT HISTORY OF BLUSH ATTACK
    "When that malfunctioning hard drive finally opened, I re-discovered about a decade of old recordings. Listening through I blushed, rolled my eyes and died repeatedly. Yet a few of the songs I'm 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. An exciting collaboration with Xavier Dephrepaulezz of Fantastic Negrito is heard on the track, The Pay Is nice, that 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 quick HISTORY OF GIRL Called GIRL
    "This album is surely an ode to my vagabond years. Everything started summers ago having a pilgrimage to Haifa, a transcontinental train ride in Russia, camping underneath the California desert sky, Anna’s guitar, and a stilted veranda over Pearl Lagoon. I'd those places at heart after i chose which songs to record. After i made a decision to play and sing simultaneously. After i became inclined to sing again after having a surgery that might lead to numerous years of silence. Girl Named Girl is a resurgence of the lyrical, lost soul, beach bonfire, hitch hiker, rolling stone, wanderer that will always remain."
