was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, to an eclectic musical family; an artist-singer mother , a bass player father, a self-taught grandfather who played accordion, and her grandmother, who while baking the weekly bread, sang in her native tongue - French.
Coadic''s prodigious talents spoke earliest via her voice, then ukulele, acoustic guitar, and bass guitar. Vocal prowess and harmonizing came easily. Song writing became a natural extension of sounding her inner landscape, and soothing childlike imagery - a specialty.
At an early age, Colleen hit the road touring.
No stranger to stages big and small, intimate and alive, with her band and solo, Colleen is comfortable and experienced playing every venue type and medium thrown her way.
Her life is, and has been all about the music.
Coadic continues to amass an impressive list of accomplishments,

Say Anything (''94), T o D a Y (''96), Scream Of Consciousness (''98),

- Extensive tours and opening slot performances including

from the reviewers:
"This cd is spilling over with diversity.
It''s the words we long to say and the sentiment that scares the hell out of us, and that''s just for the lyrics.
Her music has the substance that today''s music is lacking, and Colleen has the gift of storytelling through her lyrcs."
