No Sinner are a red hot blues rock hurricane blowing in from Vancouver who were tipped as Ones to Watch in 2014 early this year by Classic Rock magazine and The Blues magazine and are ending the year having just been nominated for the Best New Band award at the prestigious Classic Rock Magazine Awards. Fronted by Colleen Rennison is a force of nature, a post-modern blues belter and queen of soul, a hard-singing, hard-loving, hard-drinking, hard-working throw back to those she grew up listening to such as Nina Simone, Tina Turner, Joe Cocker, Big Mama Thornton, and Bessie Smith.
The band had this to say about the nomination; “Thanks to Classic Rock magazine for nominating us for Best New Band in 2014! We had such an amazing time playing shows in the UK this past spring. Highlights of our tour included Dot to Dot festival shows in Nottingham and Bristol, an incredibly cool gig in Leeds with the Magic Band, and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response at both our shows we’ve played in London this past year. We’re very excited to come back and play more shows in your country for the most discerning music audience in the world. No Sinner loves the UK and Classic Rock!”
The band released their debut mini album ‘Boo Hoo Hoo’ early this year on Provogue Records/Mascot Label Group. Rennison’s career began as a child actor in the Canadian indie film Max in 1994 at the tender age of six, which is about the time when she first started singing as well. She appeared in various movies and TV series including The Sentinel and Stargate SG-1. She studied drama at New York’s famed Circle in the Square. She appeared in the 2013 indie film Down River, which received critical acclaim at various film festivals.

Known for appearing in a T-shirt and cut-off jean shorts, Rennison’s larger-than-life, whiskey-swigging, last of the red-hot blues mamas is no act, even though it takes the stage to fully come alive. “I may have started acting first, but music was always first and foremost to me” she explains. “Acting accesses a totally different part of my creativity. It would be an absolute blessing to be able to do both. Right now, music is my priority.”
“It’s a consistent theme in my life to negotiate between being animals and yet righteous” explains Rennison. “How we need a healthy dose of both good and evil in our lives. Music itself is very much a medium between us and the spiritual world. The things we express in our songs run the gamut from sinful to celestial.”
