ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
My songs come from the heart, and none more than this one. “If You Love My West Virginia," which was first performed a cappella at a public hearing in the WV House of Delegates in February 2014. The song is a plea for all of us to show our love and loyalty to our home by protecting its clean water and intact mountains. Here's what one listener says about my songs: “Your music touches a place deep in my soul. Please keep putting into verse and song what so many of us feel but can't find the words to express.”

powerful and tragique
Colleen is quite the song writer, always in touch at that place where emotion and nature intersect. I can think of some of her songs that are rollicking funny. Others are pensive and quiet. This one is a standout for tackling a senstive political issue about the abuses of the State's resources for greed and private gain, against any sympathetic consideration of local people, communities, and the life sustaining environment. I wish you could have heard her sing at the State Legislature, and watched the stoney faced expressions on many of the delegates faces. Their consciences accused them at that moment. But their hearts were turned to stone -- like Pharoah.

This song says so well what has needed to be said for so long. If you love my West Virginia, "you will give more than you take."

So glad Colleen loves WV ...
No recording can match the raw power and outrage of Colleen's plaintive plea to the lawmakers after the water crisis - which affects us still. You can still hear the love, though. Colleen's song triggers an emotional place in every one of us that loves what is wild & wonderful about West Virginia and fears for its future.
