Review by Amy Lotsberg Producer of Collected Sounds

This artist reminds me a lot of early Ani DiFranco. Real early, think, album #1. I love this stuff. It’s very raw, voice and guitar, not much else (if anything) and just powerful and cool.

On songs like “Pleasesir” which is still just she and her guitar, she gets crazy rockin’. I guess her website name is a perfect fit, Feisty folk.

Colin has a fantastic voice that can be strong one moment and vulnerable the next.

All the songs are great, but standouts for me are: “Truth”,

She does a lot of monkey-ing with rhythms and it gives the songs so much life and energy.

I bet she’s amazing live. I can almost feel the energy coming right out of the CD player.
