Bio

Colie is a project from North Queensland Singer-Songwriter & co-founder of Neighbourhood Sessions and Neck Of The Woods Music Festival, Nicole Cross. Colie’s love of storytelling began at a very young age, inspired by her Grandfather and his love of Australian poetry, in particular Banjo Patterson. Colie is a storyteller at heart, creating crisp clear poetry in music-motion filling the hearts of her listeners with warm assurance.

From Julia Jacklin and Gretta Ray to Johnny Cash and The Police, Colie’s sound has been influenced by an interesting mix of genres. Colie is proud of her folk roots, and her sound has recently been described by Dave Ruby Howe from Triple J Unearthed as a fully realised folk tinged indie sound with an intimate feel.

Colie released her debut single ‘Sunday News’ in early 2019. Shortly after its release, ‘Sunday News’ received airplay on Triple J’s Home & Hosed segment with guest host Alex Lahey, along with Triple J Unearthed, Double J, ABC Local, 2RRR, and many other community radio stations around the country. Colie's debut EP ‘Bug On A Lamplight’ was released in May 2019 alongside a music video for ‘Sunday News’. Colie has supported the likes of Alex Lahey, Lime Cordiale and Greta Stanley and played extensively throughout North Queensland, including at self made Neck Of The Woods Music Festival and Woodfordia’s Festival of Small Halls.

Colie has just released her second EP, 'Second Hand' featuring singles including 'Angry Eyes' and 'Half Of What You Are'.

I could write an essay on how much I love this song. instead, I'm just going to let the hearty guitars, rich vocals and moving lyrics sweep me away for my fifth listen in a row.
