WORD & SONG
"You can find me where the words flow." Colleen
A Story Steeped in Sound
Colleen Songs is a proud Canadian born-and-raised ‘Writer of Word and Song’.
From writing her first song at the age of 14 to aide her communication with elderly parents, to currently working on her career as a hired wordsmith, professional musician, independent published author, and commissioned poet Colleen has written her way through adolescence, love, heartbreak, back to love, motherhood, conquering MS, trauma, loss, self-discovery and joy within her present moment.
Inspiring listeners through song and empowering readers through word, Colleen is here in service to use the gift of story to free herself, you, and others of blame, guilt, fear, anger and loss of hope by claiming the stories we write ourselves every moment of every day.
Colleen has published a memoir, INHALE, about her escape from a narcissistic spouse who became severely mentally ill. Writing about it shifted the story from trauma to forgiveness and beauty, opening a conversation kept hidden away by fear.
Since the release of INHALE Colleen Songs has intertwined her Public Speaking with prose and music. Her gift of word and song has become her signature during key speaking engagements.
Currently, Colleen is in the midst of producing a future album, ‘This Life’, and writing new songs to complement her book signing events. She has started writing Book 2 and a surprise tabletop book that is sure to please her fans and followers! OH! What will it be about?
She has currently completed 17 poems for Sacred Heart's third publication Sacred Hearts Rising: Sparks of Light, due to launch in the spring of 2020. On the daily, she is commissioned to write for Century 21 Bravo Realty as their Communications and Social Media Writer. #DreamJob!
Through the avenue of the written word, she has been able to transform her client’s thoughts, hopes, dreams and life goals into words that inspire them to live fully. This task challenges and excites her as she travels inside 'other minds' to feel, sense, and express their vision into a verbal experience.
With a personal motto that “Dreams Never Expire”
Colleen aims to encourage lost dreamers to use their unique gifts and talents to guide them back to life.
"Dreams Never Expire, but I almost did by not living them.
It took grit and a whole lot of grace,
but by listening to them and trusting in their purpose,
I am the living the life I've always dreamed of!"
