As a St. Louis native, Colleen’s musical style blossomed with influences of soul music, blues and R&B. She shared the stage with the likes of Kim Massie, St. Louis’ blues diva, and with a lifelong passion for big band, served as lead alto in the Route 66 Jazz Orchestra for many years.
Colleen’s passion for performing lead her to pursue a career on cruise ships,where she was able to connect with audiences across the world. This journey ultimately landed her in New York, where she is continuing on her path of sharing her musical gifts wherever she goes.
Colleen also enjoys performing alongside Djs, and hopes to help bridge the gap between instrumental & electronic musicians. She believes that music has the power to heal, and is currently studying sound healing as part of her spiritual path.
Currently, she performs across the Tri-State area with several bands, including the Cold Spring Harbor Band (Billy Joel Tribute), the John Jason Band, Get Dancin, and Creations wedding band with Kim Sozzi.
