"In the Whale and Eldren CD Release Show"

“Vocalists Ali Gossens and Connie Hong (also on the keys) have a wonderful understanding of melody and harmony.” - Swaager

"Record Review: Reviving Cecilia-- Thin Air"

“The percussion is creative and irresistible. I admire that each song goes through an evolution of sorts, growing and flowing into almost a second track. It’s very unexpected and refreshing. Reviving Cecilia is not predictable.” - The Ruckus

"Thin Air: Ep Review"

Truly a hidden gem in the Mile High City, it won’t be long until they become a household name amongst the Denver music scene. - Ultra5280

"UMS 2012 in Pictures"

And then my last stop of the weekend was for Reviving Cecilia, who I’m totally in love with. The core of their music is vocal harmony accompanied by piano for a lovely effect. - The Ruckus

"Underground Music Showcase 2012"

Connie Hong’s vocals were the first ingredient that got my attention. Her pipes were solid, strong, and nestled in beautifully with the rest of the band. The songs kept my attention and didn’t leave me looking at my phone like some folk outfits tend to do. - Radio 1190

"Reviving Cecilia at Moe's BBQ South - Review"

"...delicate yet unconventional harmonies." - Ultra5280


Thin Air- Released February 2012
Fact or Friction - Released June 2011



Combining inspirations such as The Beach Boys, Death Cab for Cutie, and Eisley with story-like lyrics and melodies, Reviving Cecilia has developed a sound new and familiar at the same time. Experimenting vocally, the voices of Reviving Cecilia effortlessly blend while remaining characteristically unique. Hong writes the songs on the piano, where the words and melody go hand-in-hand. With Chris Radigan on guitar, Derrick Bozkurt on bass, and Mary Claxton on drums, Reviving Cecilia isn't afraid of progressing to an edgier sound. Together, they strive to create something beautiful and meaningful to share with all who will listen.
