Exclusive Interview with Allie Colleen
~ Silly as it sounds I don’t really identify with a genre. I was raised on 80s rock and 2000s pop.
I was grew up listening to playlists of every kind of music imaginable. And my sound reflects that. I make music that I love, wherever that falls is 100% up to the listener.
If everything and anything would be possible (waking the dead included) , which two people do you think should sing the ultimate country duet?
~ Keith Whitley and Ashley McBryde OR (cause I don’t follow rules well) Cody Johnson and Allison Krauss
What song (that you’ve recorded) means the most to you and why?
~ “Close Enough” is a worship song that got me out of the darkest place I have ever been.
“Best Friends” got me out of the most broken place
And “Thank You For The Song” is my life anthem.
Who would you like to write a song with you?
~ Ed Sheeran
What is the one thing that readers/fans would be surprised to know about you?
~ My ultimate passion is the conservation of our planet. Predominantly focused on endangered species and the ending of animal cruelty. Right now I am simply getting the funding through my passion of music 😉
What is the question interviewers never seem to ask you and…you wish they would?
~ “Who are your artists that you love that deserve more recognition” : the trick to this industry is surrounding yourself with people who are better than you. Artists and friends like Timothy Baker, Jacob Wesley Rogers, Lexie Hayden, Carly Rogers, Terra Bella, Matt Wynn, Mitch Rossell, Taylor Acorn; the list goes on and on.
I can not control the life I was given; I can’t change who my dad is— I would never want to. But I can’t do anything about the platform and advantage I’ve been born into. I don’t use my family’s name. I’m doing this on my own. But no one will ever see that. So I will continue to use this platform I’ve been given to promote and support artists who don’t have the the recognition they deserve.
Describe the ultimate recording studio!
- Pasta Bar
- Echo/Vocal chamber (I don’t think it’s a thing— I don’t even know if you could record a vocal in it, but you best believe I’d sit in it and sing all day.
- A place you can nap
- If you can’t tell I don’t know anything about the technology in a studio
Are you still nervous before going on stage and if so, do you use any “rituals” to calm you nerves.
~ Nope, it’s what I was born to do. The only thing in my life I know without a doubt I can do. I don’t eat before, and I like to sing a song out of my range to wake my voice up if it’s morning but that’s it.
What was the most memorable day in your musical career and tell us why.
~ On my 21st birthday I got to sing harmonies for my dad in LA. I had flown straight there from a study abroad trip in Ireland. My dad flew my boyfriend there to meet me. That was the night he proposed. You might not consider this “musical career” but my career would be nothing without Jonathan.
Thank you think was fun!!!
