SHAY COLLINS: When I was born I didnt come out crying I came out screaming the FUNKY ROCKIN BLUES.
They havent been able to shut me up since!
Music and my voice...as well as a great pair of legs and lips were my birth right. Momma implanted the ear for the "pretty" in music and My Uncle Ray brought out of me the raw insane creative and honesty
I was influenced and mentored by my Uncle "Mother" RAY COLLINS of the 70's hit band "Mothers of Invention" w/Frank Zappa. I inherited his ability to sing almost ANYTHING and to sing with my whole heart HONESTLY and from my soul. I have lived with ALL music being the focal point of my life. My Uncle Ray taught me Above ALL THINGS INTEGRITY IS EVERYTHING...BE HONEST in Everything you do...Including your talents!
"In the House" at the Grinder House is broadcast live on WFMC Jams every Friday from 6-8pm central.
