The Seattle Times called Celia “One of Seattle’s most tantalizing new voices.” Her vocal style leans toward the bluesy, intimate expression typical of singers like Billie Holiday, Dusty Springfield, or Ella Fitzgerald. But while at home singing a ballad, Celia can bring on her own brand of sass, as seen in her funky remake of Sugar Pie DeSantos “Soulful Dress”. And a touch of bittersweet Americana creeps into songs like “Call Me from the Road” and “My Love”.
Her songwriting continues to develop using a cinematic descriptiveness and a melodic, harmonic, and lyric vocabulary that recalls American pop music from the early to mid-20th century. While the sentiments are romantic and the arrangements acoustic and minimal, her songs carry an intense contemporary timelessness - standards for a modern era, delivered in a vibrant, assertive new voice.
