Singer songwriter Colleen Heauser (Houser), raised here in Grass Valley, writes and sings her own Popular Country Original music. She has a passion for music. Now at 26-years-of-age, Colleen began performing and writing during her college years. Using the boldest colors from across many genres as her palate and country as her canvas, Heausers’ stories are vivid paintings that can be gleefully fun, tearfully heartbreaking and a perfect balance of modern and timeless.
“You can go your own way, some might say that you’re insane, but shine anyway” sings Northern California-born, Colleen Heauser on “Dancing in the Rain,” the lead single from her, now available, self-titled EP. Her dynamic range can growl soulfully one moment and tangibly howl the next. It’s an honest performance from an artist and writer who stands out for the singular point of view, sheer creativity and fearless approach to music she’s developed since she began performing and writing her music.

“I’ve always had a love for music of all kinds,” says Ms. Heauser. “When it comes to writing and playing music, there’s something about that connection you feel when the guitar resonates on your tummy or the piano hits just right. It’s beautiful.” Colleen feels she is growing as an artist and as a person every day. She says, “Each time I step on stage I try to do one thing that scares me.”
