New England-based Singer-songwriter Colette O'Connor's all original acoustic music comes from a desire to refocus kindness. Good for all ages. This simple, yet sophisticated, acoustic experience refreshes inner-child eye-twinkles because they sometimes need re-charging. O'Connor's music weaves soft Jazzy-Blues to Americana Folk.
"Refreshing...beautifully unique." -Deb Andersen, KZUM FM, NE.
"Her performances are fun, funny, thought-provoking. Hypnotic voice, rich lyrics, smoking guitar, it's all there, and then some! "- Nick Noble, NPR station WICN FM, Worcester.
The Staff at Battleship Cove would like to say that Collette and Mike completed our annual Navy Christmas Dinner. I personally booked Collette and don't know how I was so lucky, with all the musicians listed on GigSalad, to get such a perfect match for our event. Collette goes all out for her show with her attire and the stage set up, and then she gives it her all the entire time.
Response from Colette O'Connor:
Thank you so much for sharing the blessing of your event with me. The show was a joy to design, create and perform for your wonderful audience! Smiles to you and your dream-team staff, from the street-front door all the way to the top of the Battleship! - Love, the review too! Sincerely, Colette O'Connor
Ive seen Colette perform many times and I’m always taken by the honesty and passion she puts in every original song that she sings!
Price Range: $100 and up
Born on San Diego Naval Base in California, Colette O'Connor was a young Massachusetts transplant. Her music is a delightful blend of sunshine, kindness, philosophy, and fun New England wit. Most of her adult life was spent raising four amazing children to be independent thinkers, and because she used storytelling, creative play, and lots of museum field trips, they also believe in magic. A seasoned performer, O'Connor has been touring, traveling and performing her music since 2012. She says she's "loved almost every minute," and has become regularly featured on NPR, community radio and television from New England to Nebraska.
Singer-songwriter music has been created by countless voices, Colette O'Connor's music comes from a desire to refocus kindness. The listener is encouraged to remember their inner child because sometimes eye-twinkles need re-charging. To help, her music crafts magic that vibrates the invisible heart-strings that connect us all. We all have different needs, and so her style incorporates genres from jazzy-blues to rockin' folk, that her guitar work weaves together.
Colette O'Connor is a strong supporter of women in music and publishes, online, Women Singer Songwriter Magazine as a supplemental resource for up and coming musicians. She works as an organizer for Musician's without Borders and coordinates "World World Music Day" concert/fundraising events on their behalf. She hosts several, ongoing, songwriter showcase cable programs, online live concert series, and a monthly radio journal feature "Notes from New England" as a reporter of the music and stories of other New England Women Singer-Songwriters on "The Wimmin's Show" broadcast on KZUM FM-HD 89.3, Lincoln Nebraska. Yes, it's a very long drive from Massachusetts to Nebraska. Yes, there have been tornadoes; she did say "almost" every minute!
O'Connor's second album "I Think I Am" was named top among the 15 of 2016 by NPR station WICN FM 90.5 on The Folk Revival, Worcester, and nominated for Best CD 2017 Award at Worcester Music Awards.
