Об исполнителе (группе)
Born just across the river from New York City in the Garden State of New Jersey, Gwendolyn Collins was blessed with the gift of singing from her biological mother that was nurtured and matured by her adoptive parents. Gwendolyn has been singing since she was able to talk and at an early age began performing with the Church choir where her Father is a Deacon and later with the chorus in high school. It wasn’t until Gwendolyn moved to Maryland, just outside of the United States Capital, Washington, DC that that she began performing, writing, and recording music that would attract fans of all music genres. Since arriving in the DC metro area, Gwendolyn’s diverse musical path has included fronting large national and international bands to accompanying intimate jazz trios. In 2006, Collins performed as a finalist in the Fortune Magazine “Battle of the Bands” at the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. Gwendolyn has also written and produced scores for two national authors. In 2008, she co-wrote and co-produced, “This Condition Called Love” for a video-release of the book “Joy Happened” by Stephanie Williams. She also co-produced the musical score for the video track for the book, “El Capitan” by Carlos Solari. In August of 2013 wrote, Gwendolyn co-produced and released her debut single “Share” with keyboardist/producer, Ollie Wright to unexpected international acclaim. DJs in the UK and throughout Europe picked up on Gwendolyn’s unique sound styling and “Share” went on to become a Top 30 hit in the UK Soul Charts. Collins followed up “Share” with her second single “Take a Walk with You” in September 2013, which debuted at #8 on the Top 20 Independent Breaking Artists Radio Show and reached the top spot on November 8, 2013 where it remained for four straight weeks. Gwendolyn Collins is a talented singer/songwriter motivated to write by the simple art of feeling and seeing what is around her.

Music is Gwendolyn’s passion and to listeners it is a release that takes them to a place where everything is all right. She enjoys live performances and has a unique style all of her own that engages the audience and makes them a part of the music experience. Gwendolyn has been compared to the likes of Jill Scott and Erykah Badu who have had major influences on her style. Stephanie Mills, Rachelle Ferrell, Ledisi, Tracy Chapman and Annie Lenox are among her personal favorite artists. Gwendolyn Collins is a rare talent who connects with her listeners through heartfelt lyrics and smooth vocals. Gwendolyn's style and musicality is rarely seen by performers today. Gwendolyn is also a self-proclaimed independent artist who takes pleasure in letting her creative freedom flow through the songs she writes and performs across various genres of music. Gwendolyn is also a champion of other Independent Artists who co-hosts and collaborates with new talent in the Washington, DC metropolitan region. An example of this activity is the Christmas Indie Soul Project which produced a collection of holiday tunes performed by a group of Independent Artists which Gwendolyn provided as a Christmas gift to listeners. Gwendolyn will be releasing a full length CD in the Spring of 2014 that will showcase her singing and songwriting talents and treat listeners to a compilation of different music genres infused with Gwendolyn’s own style of vocals and harmonies.

Gwendolyn Collins has a sassy sweet seductive voice and she is back with some more Storytelling 11 a selection of songs of love and lust – moments4love. Her cover of Barry White’s ‘I’m Gonna Luv U’ gets you in the mood, ‘(Hey Baby) Something’ ft Brigadier is another mid tempo beater. ‘I think I like U’ ft Mycah Chevalier and Sydni Marie is a bright up tempo groove. ‘All Those Things’ is a jazzy Soul down tempo groove. ‘Beautiful’ is an acoustic piano backed ballad duet with Brian Christopher. The two stand out cuts though are ‘Moments4Love’ a mid tempo dancer and ‘Smile4me’ a lovely bright up tempo tribute to her late father. Good solid album throughout from Gwendolyn.
