Colleen Hewett

COLLEEN was just six when she first saw television. She knew then she wanted to be part of it, so she started singing and acting. At 12, she did her first public performance with a band called The Esquires. As a teenager, she toured Australia with the Laurie Allen Revue. At 20 she was a star.

Colleen released her first single Superstar and her self-titled album in 1970. Her next hit, Day by Day, hit gold record status. She was crowned Queen of Pop two years running. 

In the early 1970s, Colleen also took a shine to theatre, starring in the smash hit musical Godspell (1971) and then Pippin (1973) with John Farnham.  Colleen’s music and theatre success continued into the 80s when she made two more gold records with Dreaming My Dreams With You (1981) and Wind Beneath My Wings (1983) as well as a role in the iconic rock opera, Tommy with its all-star cast. 

Colleen took her talents to the small screen and acted in loved TV dramas of the day including Prisoner, Flying Doctors and Truckies, to name a few. During her time in Truckies Colleen fell pregnant with her first child – and the pregnancy was written into the script. Many of these shows were released worldwide. 

She waited for the right opportunity to return to the stage and The Boy from Oz was it. Colleen starred alongside Hugh Jackman and played the part to standing ovations around Australia. 

Colleen played Johnny O’Keefe’s mother in SHOUT, appeared in the hit musical Chicago and acted in her first film The Cup in 2011. These days Colleen divides her time between Australia and Fiji. 

In 2014, in addition to releasing her first EP, Colleen took part in the Go Show tour.  About the tour, Colleen said, “It was great to be in the Go Show. It was like I had done a full circle. Now I will be appearing around Australia at corporate speaking engagements and I will be doing live shows as well - so there is no time to slow down!”

For the remainder of 2014, and into 2015, Colleen has been working on releasing her new album, titled Black & White.  And, for the first time, Colleen is doing the songs she wants to do.  

In 2015, Colleen was proud to be announced Ambassador for the Rotary initiative Violence Free Families.  To help raise awareness for the initiative, a track from Black & White called 'Shut Up And Let Me Breathe' has been made into a film clip, with people from all walks of life offering their time for the cause as well.  Keep an eye on Colleen's website and social media presence for details about its release.
