A FRESH NEW VOICE

Bold, uncompromising and free: Collette represents the newest breed of hip-hop soul. Born and raised in South Carolina, Collette released her independent debut Experience Collette to international acclaim. Opening turns for Talib Kweli, Chrisette Michele, Noel Gourdin, Dwele, Anthony David and others soon followed. In 2010, she won the John Lennon International Songwriting Contest. And in both 2012 and 2013, Collette was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year by the Reader's Choice Awards panel at SoulTracks.com.

In 2013, the follow-up album Juneteenth Revolution announces a personal, spiritual, and emotional liberation. Named for the Juneteenth holiday – which falls on the artist’s day of birth – the album features Eric Roberson, Akil Dasan and jazz flautist Monet. Production is handled by newcomers Aaron Hardin (Eric Roberson, Phonte), 20Music (Jazmine Sullivan), and frequent collaborator Danny! of Okayplayer Records (French Montana, Danny Brown). Eclectic but accessible, Juneteenth Revolution is tinged with optimism and grounded in pure soul.
 

WHAT IS JUNETEENTH?

"Juneteenth" is an African American tradition honoring the end of legalized slavery. Born on June 19, the day of the Juneteenth holiday, Collette uses the term as a metaphor for spiritual, emotional and mental liberation.
