Music has been an influence in the Collier girls' life for as long as they can remember. Even as little girls, they would gather up their parents' old records and perform "stage" shows, complete with singing and dancing.

The sisters (Bree, Lyndee, and Hailey) first began singing publicly with their dad and his band, Sonny Joe Blues Band, covering Motown songs at weddings, parties, and receptions. It wasn’t long before their multi-faceted vocals became a much sought-after item. After a taste in the spotlight, it became clear to them what they wanted to do, and the group Collier was born. The sound was a mix of their roots- a soulful blend of R&B;with a Motown flair.

A short time later, the girls met up with Tom Michael, Todd Shay, and Brett Vargason, three Detroit area players who brought with them some of the coolest live chops around. Vargason and Michael make one of the tightest rhythm sections going and Shay's guitar can do everything from ride comfortably underneath the girls' voices to shout out along with them! The guys grew up on the Motown sound so it was a natural fit when they all joined forces. Together they started crafting songs with undeniable grooves and strong lyrics, hit songs that said something and took a stand, drawing from their musical backgrounds and real-life experiences. Once they figured out they had something, they gave it a name, and along came Like Candy Red!

Like Candy Red is unique, as each of the girls takes turns as lead vocalist. Their natural harmony shines through in every song they sing- something that only comes from singing together for years. The show is a raucous good time, full of hip dance moves, awesome players, and three beautiful girls who are here to lay down the truth in their own way! There's plenty that could be said to try and describe what it is, but the best thing to do is check it out live! If it's indefinable, but undeniable, then it's Like Candy Red!
