LA Indie Artist to Watch [Colleen Lovejoy]
Indigenous to California, Colleen returned to Los Angeles after 4 years of studying abroad in Russia which gradually resulted in ditching class, touring with a band and working at a weird, local MTV channel. She would 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 that she had be able to continue singing. With all the emergence of The Black Lives Matter Movement, Colleen knew she must break her silence. She started by recording songs that spoke to the injustices ailing the African-American community and launched a campaign #LyricalProtest to unite artists which are using 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 called Girl" (featured on LA Weekly and Champion City’s HiFi mixtape) is alternative folk.
A brief Reputation BLUSH ATTACK
"When that malfunctioning hard disk finally opened up, I re-discovered in regards to a decade of old recordings. Listening through I blushed, rolled my eyes and died several times. Yet a few of the songs I'm still relevant, even definitive of my creative journey. Blush Attack can be a revisitation of the vault favorites. A lot of the selects were produced and engineered by Grammy-nominated mastermind, Ghian Wright, whose idea it absolutely was to record this guitar rock band playing simultaneously. An exciting collaboration with Xavier Dephrepaulezz of Fantastic Negrito is heard relating to the track, The Pay Is nice, that has been 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 SHORT Reputation GIRL Named GIRL
"This album is an ode to my vagabond years. All of it started summers ago using 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 had those places at heart once i chose which songs to record. When I made a decision to play and sing simultaneously. When I became inclined to sing again after having a surgery that will cause numerous years of silence. Girl By The Name of Girl is really a resurgence from the lyrical, lost soul, beach bonfire, hitch hiker, rolling stone, wanderer that may always remain."
