Colleen Sillver is a singer/ songwriter/ instrumentalist based out of North Monterey County, Calif.. She has just released a CD of Americana Music recently. The album has a contemporary jazzed out bluegrass influence with a twist of Nashville country streaming
throughout 14 songs.
Coming from an orchestra background, of playing cello, violin and clarinet from grade school through college,
she now plays mandolin most of the time. Colleen has created the independent label, Mustang Records and is now distributing her own
CD throughout the U.S. with her own original songs. She is an independent grass roots artist.
As a songwriter, this BMI member writes soul driven, heart felt, fast paced, foot stomping music straight from within. She
is a tight lead vocalist, who self produced this album for a very unique sound over the past year and a half.
The lyrics have a timeless feeling to them with a consistent combination of high energy and sophisticated musicianship. Rather
than conform to one particular genre, she has brought many styles together for a unique blend that makes this acoustic collection awesome.
The album gets you movin' and shakin' and will occasionally stop you in your tracks with the truth of life in a very sweet way.
Some of the best songs on this album are "Pocahontas", "Love Water", "Go With the Angels", "You're Tender, Baby", and
"Sierra Mountains" & "Shoreline of Love". People usually start singing to the chorus lines when they hear the albums title song,
"American Boys" which is a salute to men.
Twenty or more radio stations in Michigan alone are now playing the cd for two songs about their state, which are titled
"Motor City Child" & "I Need a Race Car". Michigan stations gave them immediate airplay.
The entire album is consistently tight, well orchestrated, smoking entertainment! Colleen says "It's a genre that is moving forward. It's
the kind of music all age groups like. I've seen people emotionally react to certain songs, like "Go With the Angels". That makes me feel
good to see people fall in love with them. The album gets them thinking and gives them some peace in their lives".
The musicians involved in this project are friends and several Stellar American Guys: Joe Craven
[ tours with David Grisman and independently], Mike Stidolph [ Nashville multi-instrumentalist] and Derek Smith [ based out of San
Francisco] on Drums. The other fantastic singer/songwriter is Corinne West doing harmonies on 5 songs [tours all over the world for her
own label of Americana, grass roots music.]
This album is filled with 3 mandolins, 3 guitars, 3 banjos, 2 fiddles, a chin cello, acoustic bass and a dobro blended with steel
peddle quitar and steel drums, congas, full set of drums and some electric bass, plus some amazing sound effects by Joe Craven, like a train
sound created on a trash can with some brushes.
Sailing is a major passion in Colleen's life. She grew up on the Great Lakes in Michigan. You can hear in the words to her songs reference
to the water, wind and the storms. She has uniquely combined bluegrass with an element that is a foreign topic of sailing terminology and
ocean theory to the genre. Colleen stated, "I love traditional bluegrass, but music is progressive and it needs to continue to evolve at all times.
So why not?"
The CD has been a huge success and is getting airplay across the U.S. Colleen says, "That's very cool thing, I'm headed towards the recording
the next project and Mustang Records is selling enough Cds to make that happen."
Rich in orchestration, with near flawless arrangements, and exciting solos, you will be caught singing and dancing to this upbeat,
Lively Rendition of Female Americana!
