Biographical Notes

Colleen Power exploded onto the international music scene in 1996 with her rousing rendition of Ron and Connie Hynes' Mary Got A Baby, which appeared on 11:11 - Newfoundland Women Sing Songs of Ron and Connie Hynes. The track appeared once again on 1998's My Sister Sings, placing Colleen in the company of well-known artists such as Sarah McLaughlan and Mary Jane Lamond. Colleen has since released four independently produced CDs.

Her award-winning debut, Lucky You Are, in 2000 gained her a reputation as one of Canada's finest songwriters. It was Reverb magazine's number one album to buy for 2000. Three songs were featured in CTV's The Associates and several tracks received extensive airplay on national and international radio. In 2001, Colleen won Music NL Female and Alternative Artist of the year and received three East Coast Music Award nominations.

Face and Eyes, Colleen's sophomore release won the Music NL 2004 Alternative Artist of the year and was named in the Halifax Chronicle Herald as one of Stephen Cooke's Top Ten Albums of 2005. Na Na Song, the first single, went to number one on the nationally syndicated East Coast Countdown. It also received three ECMA nominations and airplay on many radio stations worldwide. In 2005, Colleen appeared on CBC TV's ECMA Songwriter Circle.

In 2006, Colleen released Terre-Neuvienne, her first fully French CD. She was chosen to take part in SACEF's Serie Découvertes and she performed two shows live at the prestigious Place des Arts in Montreal in January 2007. Aucune Idée spent 10 weeks at number 4 and 5 weeks in the number 5 position in Radio-Canada Manitoba's Top 20 countdown. Colleen performed on Radio-Canada TV's Brio taped live in Moncton. Songs from Terre-Neuvienne continue to be played regularly on French radio stations from Halifax to France and the CD receives rave reviews throughout Francophonie.

In June 2008, Colleen's first independent effort, Rejects, came into the world. A collection of weird and funny songs, it marks the beginning of Colleen's career as a solo producer/engineer.

In December 2009, Colleen was named Maritime Artist of the Year at Montreal's Rendez-vous de la Chanson Vivante, an exclusively Francophone Emerging songwriter showcase.

In August, 2010, Colleen teamed up with the ECMA Award-winning Newfoundland bluegrass band, Crooked Stovepipe to record a bluegrass CD, For Little Ones. The CD includes versions of children's favorites, Colleen's original songs for little ones and songs by Tommy Sands, Ron Hynes, Malvina Reynolds and Aneirin Thomas.
