Memories Remain is the epitome of faith, musical durability, and unselfish loyalty to the art of lyrical and music sheet composition. Colleen Rose Novak has endured years of restructuring and transforming her poetic resonance to come to this point in her career. Colleen’s lyrical quest defines her feelings toward music, which at the same time bridges her faith and spiritual philosophy. Memories Remain is an eclectic collection of originals scripted from her heart and escorted to her audience from her soul. The heavy with promise approach, multi-melodic forms, and spiritual sway, opens the gates to personal higher levels, in the world of rock.
As Collen stated, “God says let others speak of your works. Do not boast on your work”. This is the foundation of her quest and current spin.
Many of the sounds encased in this jewel box show free wheeling emotion from her wild child side to that of open and vulnerable sentiments, all of which express the several gifts of Colleen. From the soulful shades of sorrow in “Shattered Heart” heavy direct approach in "Memories Remain" to the spiritual sway of “Lift me Up”, each spin has a message of profound sensitivity, allowing the listener few limitations in perception.
Enjoy the sound…embrace the message!
