Ms. Colleen is no stranger to the country music scene. She has spent time in the industry as a back up singer for top acts and follows her Grandmother, Colleen Carroll who was an accomplished singer in her own right.
A passion for singing and songwriting since a young age has garnered her a reputation of being a notable songwriter with an iconic-sounding voice. Her impeccably strong voice with hints of timeless tradition accents her Americana Voice. The room never fails to silence as Allie Colleen begins to sing about the layers of love and heartbreak that have shaped her. Some of her newest songs bring witty lyrics and a connection to the song unlike most today.
One of her original songs, “Close Enough,” gained more than 750k views on YouTube. Her social media following has continued to increase every year. Her passionate drive and innovative vision set her apart from her peers resulting in her music and videos going viral on the internet – even capturing the attention of well-known radio show host Bobby Bones – proving that her audience is captive and waiting for her next song. Persistently working to hone her skills along-side industry professionals and performing at venues around both Tennessee and national venues is helping garner Allie Colleen a growing fan base.
Her debut single, “Work In Progress” defines the life that’s shaped her with personal lyrics and transparency in both the vocals and delivery. “Work in Progress” is a sweet sentiment regarding her introduction to the Music Industry co-written with hit songwriter Marcus Hummon and well-known studio engineer Greg Beick. Her second release hit the streets this past fall. Allie Colleen is finding out who she is in this new song “Along the Way.” The lyrics are steeped in encouragement, championing a loved one to find the missing piece of themselves and leap across the sky, touching the moon and stars before coming back down to earth.
“I hope that you discover yourself / Along the way to my heart / Along the way to this bed / Along the way to my arms / Like the tide that pulls you in / And I used to say I didn’t / I know I need you now,” she sings with her glistening voice over a gentle melody of acoustic guitar and prominent drums.
“This song was inspired by my best friend, Emily, and was inspired by our distance and what it is like to love someone who you know needs to leave and grow up and explore,” Allie explains in a press release. “We hope it encourages you to do some exploration of your own, we hope that you go out and you find all there is to find, and we hope that after all that, you realize that what you had before is worth coming back to. This song is about the courage to look for more and at the end of the day be happy with settling down with the one you love.”
