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.
