BIO: Colleen Lloy
Born into a musical family, the natural progression was for me to begin experimenting with my voice and guitar through the church choir at the age of 10. By age 14, my career began professionally. My first recording became the number 2 song on an album for the charity, “MADD” (Mothers Against Drunk Drivers). This recording brought attention to City Kidd’s manager who asked me to join. City Kidd evolved into the band now known as Tesla. I forged onto a separate path which led to a radio tour in Australia.
Moving to Nashville helped me hone my skills as a writer. I write with passion, about life’s experiences. 2000 was a difficult year for me when I lost my brother. After losing him, I wrote the song titled, “Can You Hear”. On Stella Parton’s suggestion, the song was released to Christian Country Music Radio and charted number 26. More info on my brother Jim, can be found in the Tribute link.
I have always been a strong supporter of the US Military. When my son joined the Army, I wrote You’re Gonna Fly” and made the song available to anyone and everyone related to someone in the military to thank them for their unselfish service to our great Nation. When my son deployed to Afghanistan, the song “Missing You” was born. I recently returned from an awesome USO Tour in Italy and am planning on returning to Italy in 2012 to visit our troops.
Performing throughout the U.S. and abroad has resulted in entering and winning multiple singing and songwriting competitions. I am a frequent guest at the nationally known Bluebird Café, and have done television and radio broadcasts. I have opened up for artists like Billy Dean, Paul Overstreet, John Berry, Lee Greenwood, George Jones, Mel McDaniels, Billy Ray Cyrus, Tanya Tucker to name a few. I have had the rare privilege to interview Mr. BB King and film his live performances over the last year. I am a frequent guest at BB Kings in Nashville. I have played large arenas, small stages, no stages and backyard patios. You can count on the fact I will give you all I have with each performance no matter what venue I choose.
• Sacramento critic, Mick Martin writes: "The most impressive of these is Colleen Lloy whose "Sooner or Later" is an absolute knockout. If this fine singer isn’t signed by a major label, there’s no justice in the music world."
• Nashville Music Guide Critic Brad Fisher gives Lloy’s "Life Challenges" CD a five star rating and writes: "This ten-song CD is an emotional roller coaster that runs the gambit of love. The tunes were either written or co-written by Lloy who has a beautiful set of pipes which she shows off on this album.”
