Collette is an R&B singer whose silky voice breezes over hard hitting beats... sometimes a gentle wind, at other times a hurricane of South Carolina soul.She lists among her influences her gospel-singing mother, as well as Ella Fitzgerald, Bill Withers, Jill Scott, Amel Larrieux and Mary J. Blige – a list as varied as her own musical experiences. She began as a pianist and saxophonist in early childhood in her native South Carolina, and wandered into singing as a teen. After spending four years in college at Howard University, singing and soaking up the raw energy of Washington D.C.’s go-go music scene, Collette was finally ready to expose the world to her unique brand of storytelling. Collette released her independent debut Experience Collette in 2008, earning notable radio airplay and attention in the U.S. and abroad. She snagged opening gigs with huge names in urban music, from Chrisette Michele to Talib Kweli, indie soul titan Eric Roberson and more.
