CelloVein, to be released Summer 2011



*A Bit About Myself*

CelloVein is the brainchild of me, Halley Feaster. Nowadays, many classical string players are trying on new hats -- taking songs from new and different genres and translating them to fit into their classical instrument training. However, I’m not a classical cellist. I’m a blues and rock cellist: I compose, play and sing my own music.

Originally from Long Beach Island, New Jersey, I started playing cello at age 9, and bass at age 10. When I turned 18, I was accepted to Berklee College of Music in Boston, where I studied both instruments, and earned my Bachelor of Music Degree in Performance and Professional Music.

Currently, I'm working on a solo album, called "CelloVein", and my ensemble is also called "CelloVein". I like consistency. I also perform with the Dropkick Murphys and Jeff DaRosa, and have recorded for them as well as local favorite Destry.


My live performance format is very flexible -- I can play intimate venues in a solo format with my acoustic cello and vocals, or I can go all out and play an arena with my 6-string Electric Cello and you better believe my enormous pedalboard and full band. I can also cater to anything in between. My colleagues and I make a point of fitting in different venues and performance situations.


I’ve been told my original songs sound like a Black Sabbath and Cream smoothie, with a little Alison Kraus juice. Although usually upbeat and/or groovy, my music tends to expose sadness yet inspire hope.

I find inspiration in the music of Jimmies Page and Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, and Eric Clapton. I also have the privilege of being able to improvise in many styles. There is no "classical twist".
