Armed with a powerful voice and melodic sound rooted in Indie Rock, Cherisha Heart is a force on stage. She charms audiences with her refreshing original tunes and guitar skills. With a guitar in her hands at 3 years old, she began learning chords at 9 and took up songwriting by age 12. Her lyrics are diverse, personal and moody, aiming to provoke introspection and foster a forward thinking perspective. But above all she wants her listeners to experience connection and resonance, and to feel loved and seen through her music. 

Raised in a musical family, she and her brothers formed a family band and as teenagers could be found busking downtown at every opportunity, performing on radio stations, television, and every local venue their parents could book them in. Cherisha Heart's musical journey has taken her to notable venues across the U.S.(San Fransisco, Austin, Nashville), Mexico and New Zealand. After winning a local music video contest in 2014, and catching the attention of Michael Franti and Spearhead, she performed with them in multiple cities on the One Heart One Soul tour. She co-fronts Outlaws and Angels, a local country band, and lends her talents as a guitarist and vocalist for the New Zealand-based retro rock band, Zephyr Love, fronted by her brother, Chris McCollum.

Her solo career began with the release of her debut album, “Mountain Maiden,” (2011), followed by single and music video, “Dreams” (2019), music video and EP, "The Good Life" (2021), and is currently gearing up for the release of her highly anticipated album “Slow Burn” in the summer of 2024. “I created this one for myself which I think is most important with art,” says the California born singer/songwriter, “but I still hope people like it and find it relatable,”
