Compared to Fiona Apple and Mary J. Blige...Celia’s perspective comes from a complicated background of London's south-end, Bluegrass in the Midwest and a love of Nina Simone, Stevie Wonder, Leonard Cohen...
Her performances include features at The Bitter End, NYC, Club Passim in Boston, Club Helsinki in Great Barrington and The Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton MA. She has performed up and down from Maine to New York touring with her band which includes Celia on keys, Joe Boyle on guitar, Chris Ryan on drums, and John O’Boyle on bass.
A stint in Missouri saw her singing at hootenannies and later she began composing on guitar and piano in Maui and continued on the East Coast.
Celia released one solo album "While I Lay Watching" in 2001, and in 2003 created “Break” in an old Housatonic train station studio with producer Robby Baier of Soultube. Funk and soul oriented, Celia co-writes with Bruce Knowlton (guitarist)and Robby Baier. Provocative and haunting Celia and her band perform songs from Break, and a whole new set of soul/pop songs which are waiting for their day in the studio.
