One of the more interesting artists to hit the music circuit is Colette Carr. She has been steady making a name for herself within the musical landscape with her delicious blend of both pop and hip-hop making her an true force to be reckoned with in the industry. This lady can do it all, keeping listeners on their toes and at full attention.
Colette is releasing music as fast as she makes it via a series of four digital EP installments- one every two months until the release of her full debut album Skitszo on Cherrytree Records on July 9th. Listening to each installment has been a true treat, as Colette Carr does a fantastic job of keeping things interesting. One moment you are jamming out to an incredible pop gems such as “One By One” off the latest digital installment Skitszo (Part 3) and then within the next moment Carr flips the switch and spits out rhymes that rival many of hip-hops finest.
Skitszo, which features Colette’s unique combination of singing and spitting (“spinging”), is a wickedly inventive set of pop, hip-hop, and electro-pop co-written with and produced by The Cataracs, Martin “Cherry Cherry Boom Boom” Kierszenbaum, Frankmusik and RedOne. Colette’s unique flow and unexpected lyrics are a wild mix of sassy humor and spitfire personality.
The past 24 months have been a whirlwind for Carr, who has seen her self-made music video for “Back It Up” conquer the MTV U Freshman video poll, had over 100,000 downloads of her mixtape, as well as, touring all over Canada on the Cherrytree Pop Alternative Tour with LMFAO!
And to think that only 3 years ago, she was making her hip hop debut by freestyling unexpectedly on stage before a Game concert at UCLA.
“The Game was late and the house MC asked if anybody in the audience knew how to rap,” recounts Carr. “My sister volunteered me and well …” she continues in her Malibu drawl, “I slayed ‘em, dewdney” Video here!
In fact, the moment has been immortalized in the chronicles of youtube along with Carr’s other extemperaneous viral performances such as her “Do You Date Me?” monologue (best Corona ad the beer company never made) and “John Adams” in which Carr goes back to the future to deliver Lincoln’s Gettysburgh Address as the second, not sixteenth, president. Huh?
