COLLEEN GREEN
  • Colleen Green
In 2013, the year she released her second solo album, Colleen Green played more than 200 shows. That kind of work ethic is exceedingly rare these days, even in the indie/punk circles Green travels, but you should not assume that the L.A.-based rocker is some sort of ambitious striver trying to hustle her way into success. It's just that Green takes her DIY approach seriously, staying true to the ethics that inform the scene she came up in – you don't get Nobunny to give you your first gig if you're a poseur – while playing incredibly affable grunge-pop that manages to be accessible and personal. Green's records – especially her latest, I Want to Grow Up – are tinged with the sort of friendly stoner vibe that's both legit and loose, with her laid-back delivery riding atop muscular chords and a strong melodic sensibility. And you know, after three years of being a road warrior, she puts on a pretty good show.
