Colie is a project from North Queensland storyteller, Nicole Cross. Colie’s love of storytelling began

at a young age, inspired by her Grandfather and his love of Australian poetry, in particular Banjo

Patterson. Colie’s newest single ‘Kids These Days’ digs into the old and dusty family photo albums.

It's a retrospective look at growing up in regional Queensland. The family holidays, the wholesome

example of true love set by loving grandparents. Colie’s grandparent’s family home was always

filled with family, and it was full to the brim with love. In her usual style, Colie creates crisp clear

poetry in music-motion filling the hearts of her listeners with warm assurance.

From Julia Jacklin and Phoebe Bridgers to Johnny Cash, Colie’s sound has been influenced by an

interesting mix of genres. Colie is proud of her folk roots, and her sound has recently been

described by Elsa Silberstein from Triple J as “Brutal Australian songwriting - Colie leaves you

feeling warm albeit a bit devo”.

Despite unprecedented times, 2020 so far has seen Colie release two singles and her sophomore

EP ‘Second Hand’. Shortly following the release of her second EP, Colie was announced as

Queensland’s Regional Triple J Unearthed Level Up Grant winner. As part of ABC’s Fresh Start

Fund, Triple J Unearthed offered fifteen different financial grants to help artists level up their music

careers. The ABC’s Fresh Start Fund provided urgent and critical support to independent

Australian artists and safeguards local content and creativity in response to the unprecedented

impact of COVID-19. Funds from the Level Up Grant have allowed Colie to produce her next single

‘Kids These Days’. Colie plans to follow this release with a string of intimate shows in regional


Colie is proud to work with other regional creatives including producer Alistar Richardson at his

beautiful farm house recording studio in the rural town of Boonah and fellow NQ local, music video

director Robert Crispe.
