"2015 Artist to watch"

Skope: How long have you been making music and what do you love about having music in your life?

I started writing poetry when I was about 10 years old and that was the same time I began discovering music. Eventually my passion for music took over poetry and around the age of 16 I began to venture into writing music. So for almost 14 years music has played a significant role in my life.

The thing I love most about having music in my life is the passion that can be felt when the right song/album/artists provides the perfect background to whatever is happening in your life. To me that is one of the main reasons I make the music I do, I love to connect with people.

Skope: What are 2 major music goals for 2015?

My first goal for 2015 is to get booked for as many shows, performances and festivals as I possibly can. I have a strong management team behind me and am looking forward to building with them.

My next major goal is to continuing growing as an artist. I think that a lot of musicians get so caught up in the various aspects of this business that they forget how to balance their creativity and they eventually hit a wall. In 2015 I want to stay rounded as an artist but at the same time keep learning and growing from the music around me.

Skope: What are you currently promoting the most via an album, tour, single etc?

Currently we are working on my upcoming EP “Rich Boy, Poor Man”. We will be completed this month and I can’t wait to get this project out there because my team and I have put so much hard work into it. I’m so proud of this project as a whole and even prouder of everybody that had a hand in the making of it.
Other than that my management team has been hard at work setting up a constant venue roll throughout the spring and summer of this year.

Skope: Do you think that musicians get paid enough for streaming sites like Spotify & Pandora?

Honestly, At this point in my music career I’m not very worried about that. When it comes time for me to be personally concerned about that then I will have an input but as of now I just want to make great music and connect with as many people as I possibly can.

Skope: Do you have any new Youtube videos or Soundcloud singles posted online we should hear?

Yes, G.O.M.D is my latest video on youtube and Soundcloud is the easiest way to hear my past mixtapes as well as upcoming music. But for any updates about me the easiest source is TheRealCellis.com where you’ll find links to all of my media.

Skope: What is coming up for you & where you at online?

Currently the local scene of MD is where the majority of my shows are (Tin Roof, PowerPlant Rams Head, Seacrets). But like I mentioned earlier we are in the process of expanding to as many markets as possible and I was actually just booked for my first festival gig this summer in Brooklyn, NY (Cake & Kisses). Anywhere online I’m TheRealCellis

"Listen to Cellis' new song "You Should""

Cellis, Baltimore born hip hop artist is a local phenomenon, slowly earning the respect of his city. His music is comparable to the likeness of artists such as Vic Mensa, Drake, Isaiah Rashad and Kid Cudi with influences from all genres. Within the past year he has toured the East Coast and Canada performing at Major festivals and opening for artists such as Dom Kennedy, Camron and BJ The Chicago Kid. His sound is infectious, his ear for music is keen and it’s clear to see why he is next up! - H Wing

"Listen To Cellis’ New Song “Brand New”"

After releasing his single “You Should” which made it to #8 on our Radar playlist last month, Cellis returns with a brand new track titled “Brand New.” The track is a vibrant, upbeat and high tempo one which reminds me of a Lil Uzi Vert type music with better lyrics.

Cellis is one to watch out for so follow him on social media and check out his show dates and more new music here. - H Wing


LP(2015):Rich Boy, Poor Man

Mixtape(2012):Clear Eyes Full Heart



Cellis is a Baltimore, MD based artist that has used his skillful writing and excellent ear for great music to set him apart from the crowd. His first introduction into the art scene was with poetry at the age of 10. He quickly began to excel and turned his love for writing into an everyday passion. As the years progressed he turned to spoken word and became a well known young advocate for poetry in the Baltimore area. At the age of 16 he began experiment with music and the basic tools needed to create music. He was soon englufed by the artform and was amazed at how easily he could craft his spoken word pieces into songs. Within no time he was on his feet and running performing at various local venues as he continuously grew and found himself as an artist. Within the past year he has toured the East Coast and Canada performing at Major festivals and opening for artists such as Dom Kennedy, Cam'ron and BJ The Chicago Kid. His sound is infectious, his ear for music is keen and it's clear to see why he is next up!
