Colleen Brown

Colleen is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist based out of Edmonton, AB, Canada. She has steadily gained momentum since she first self-released her 2nd album FOOT IN HEART in 2008, with regular airplay on CBC, CKUA and college stations across Canada (6 weeks in the !earshot Chart’s Top Ten folk/roots). An Alberta Emerging Artist Award followed, and various song placements- including a CBC Radio 2 TV Commercial (the song Love You Baby) and 2 full-length features ‘Campus Radio’ & ‘The Pharmacist’- both in theatres across Canada this fall.

FOOT IN HEART was re-released in 2010 with Emm Gryner’s Dead Daisy Records & Outside Music, and Colleen toured extensively across Canada that year, playing music festivals, concert halls and clubs. Brown played 2010’s Edmonton Folk Fest, and has shared stages with Jakob Dylan, Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo, Hawksley Workman, Brandi Carlisle, Kathleen Edwards, Hannah Georgas, Dan Mangan, Frank Black, and Don MacLean, among others. She also toured across Canada last October with Canadian folk/rock icons Crash Test Dummies.

In addition Colleen was a winner in the 2010 All Albertan Song Contest for the song ‘Western Fire’, co-written with Colin Cripps. (Sarah MacLachlan, Kathleen Edwards, Blue Rodeo, Jim Cuddy Band)
