LA Indie Artist to Watch [Colleen Lovejoy]

Indigenous to California, Colleen returned to La after four years of studying abroad in Russia which gradually led to ditching class, touring having a band and in a weird, local MTV channel. She would be required to have a break from the indie LA music scene after undergoing bilateral lung surgery due to a genetic respiratory complication. It wasn’t sure that she’d have the ability 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 towards the injustices ailing the African-American community and launched a campaign #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 quick Reputation BLUSH ATTACK
“When that malfunctioning hard disk finally opened, I re-discovered with regards to a decade of old recordings. Listening through I blushed, rolled my eyes and died repeatedly. Yet a number of the songs I feel still relevant, even definitive of my creative journey. Blush Attack is really a revisitation of the vault favorites. Most of the selects were produced and engineered by Grammy-nominated mastermind, Ghian Wright, whose idea it had been to record this rock band playing simultaneously. A thrilling collaboration with Xavier Dephrepaulezz of Fantastic Negrito is heard on the track, The Pay Is nice, which was recorded at the notorious Blackball Universe (a converted warehouse in South Central that individuals were once forbidden to visit by my bestfriend’s boyfriend).”
A SHORT Good reputation for GIRL BY THE NAME OF GIRL
“This album is definitely an ode to my vagabond years. It all started summers ago having a pilgrimage to Haifa, a transcontinental train ride in Russia, camping under the California desert sky, Anna’s guitar, plus a stilted veranda over Pearl Lagoon. I needed those places in mind after i chose which songs to record. When I chose to play and sing simultaneously. After i became inclined to sing again after having a surgery that might cause many years of silence. Girl Called Girl is a resurgence of the lyrical, lost soul, beach bonfire, hitch hiker, rolling stone, wanderer that will always remain.”
