NASHVILLE, TN – Black Hen Music announces the signing of Vancouver-based singer Colleen Rennison, and will release her debut solo CD, See the Sky About to Rain, on June 17 in the U.S. and June 3 in Canada. Recorded at the Hen House Studios in Vancouver and Nashville, See the Sky About to Rain was produced by Juno Award-winner Steve Dawson, who also adds his multi-talents on various instruments throughout the album. In addition to a core session group of Canadian and Nashville all-stars, Colleen’s debut also features such special guests as the renowned McCrary sisters on backing vocals, Jim Hoke on sax and bluegrass legend
Tim O’Brien.

See the Sky About to Rain showcases Colleen Rennison as a classic singer of songs, who brings new dimensions to a set list from the pages of the great American (and in this case Canadian, too) songbook, creating nuances, passion and soul with a delivery that stamps them as her own.
The album’s dozen tracks demonstrate Colleen’s amazing interpretations of timeless material from a wide range of composers, including Robbie Robertson (“All La Glory” and “Stage Fright”), Townes Van Zant (“White Freightliner”), Leonard Cohen (“Why Don’t You Try”), Bobby Gentry (“Fancy”), Tom Russell (“Blue Wing”), Joni Mitchell (“Coyote”), and Neil Young (“See the Sky About to Rain”).

Over the last several years, Colleen Rennison has been the frontwoman/vocalist for the acclaimed Canadian band, No Sinner. She’s been touring consistently both on her own and with No Sinner in 2014, including two tours of Europe, a number of dates in the U.S. (including SXSW) and across Canada. With a voice channeling power, tenderness and a range of emotions that couldn’t possibly come from a singer who’s only 25 years old, Colleen projects a sound that envelops the heart and cleanses the soul. Her solo album is a bit of a departure for those used to her raucous ways onstage with No Sinner, but the end result is just as powerful. Here, she sings songs that have influenced her over the years and carries them to new heights with her masterful delivery.

The sessions were recorded mostly live off the floor in a surrounding that Colleen describes “like a dream. Steve records in such a way with his funky old monitors and vintage microphones that there’s this amazing ambience in the room. You can even hear the dust falling from the ceiling and it becomes part of the song.”
