BandPopR&B

Celia is a soul-influenced pop singer and songwriter who can put a spell on you with her major voice and passionate performance . With elements of funk and R&B, her music is a paradox of acoustic guitars with drum loops, and haunting keys and hip bass lines next to her toasty voice.

Biography

Critics say: "Bewitching, entrancing, impressive" about Celia's voice and songwriting: an arresting combination of evocative lyrics and a compelling voice. Celia began her career singing gospel choruses in her preacher-father’s church. Years later she performed at the Iron Horse Music Hall in Northampton and since then has released two CD's and played all over the Northeast.She has shared the stage with Toshi Reagon, Melissa Ferrick, played in venues like The Bitter End, Club Passim, The Living Room and at area colleges. At a band showcase Celia met Robby Baier from soultube.com and asked him to produce what is now "Break". Celia’s raw elements of blues and funk-rock and gospel were emphasized in this fresh setting of sampled and live drums, hip bass lines and acoustic grooves. Released in July the album already has DJ.’s saying things like "Break sits firmly in my top ten releases of the year" (Donny Moorhouse, WRNX) and "Cool and entrancing" (Music Director Johnny Memphis WRSI). Gigging with a band from Massachusetts called "a veritable super-group" by local reviewers, Celia has a whole new set of songs waiting for their turn in the studio....

Lyrics

You make me high

Written By: Celia

High
You make me high
high you make me
high
I'll follow you anywhere baby
even down the road unfamiliar
I'll follow you anywhere baby
anything just to be near you
You make me high
You make me high
I'll be your soulmate baby
gonna do so much for you
I'll be your soulmate baby
there ain't nothing I won't do
You make me high
You make me high
As the tree bends as the river runs as you and I succomb
sky chokes my words
makes all absurd
say no words but love
say no words but love
You make me high
You make me high

Like You

Written By: Celia

Is there anybody like you around
Is there anybody like you around
do you think she'd mind
me spending these moments with you
just to see
what it is about you
that comforts me
I'm in my bed alone
old crone
wake up crying
can't deal with this empty space
can't be filled
with just anyone
not the one who left me like this
how'd we get here
our generation
all these fallen trees we are
I know I can make it on my own
I know I can make it but I don't want to
on my own
Is there anybody like you around
your smile and warmth
the way you encourage me
that beauty from your mouth
the way you walk in integrity
how tall you are and strong
how I'd love to love you
someone like you
how I'd love to love you
someone like you
(repeat bridge and chorus)
