My other musical interests, styles, and instruments are:
I am a singer/songwriter, and I love jazz choir arrangements! I was in the number one high school jazz choir in the US in high school. I also play the ukulele, and would like to incorporate more a cappella and percussion into my music.
My favorite artists, influences, and inspirations are:
Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Ed Sheeran, Bon Iver, The Beach Boys, Coldplay, The Jezabels, Taylor Swift, Loch Lomond, U2, The Beatles
More about me:
I am currently attending a community college, and next year I will transfer to a university to study contemporary music. My top choices for school are USC, University of Miami, and the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. I was in my high school jazz choir from 10th to 12th grade, which is the number one high school jazz choir in the US according to Downbeat Magazine. I am an aspiring singer/songwriter, and I have an album and an EP out. Along with music, I also tap dance and have been dancing since I was four years old. Hope you like my music, and I look forward to hearing yours! :)
hey Celeste. great to know of your work, and to hear your voice developing through the songs you've shared (including the one you posted in the 'voices around the world' page-- along with telling us the story behind it). you're really using music as a medium to share your story. would love to hear your thoughts on our discussion of Global Hip-Hop in the Voices group.
Hey Celeste. Thanks for sharing so much great stuff! Four Chord Song is great! I could use a little more text though ;). You jazz choir is fantastic too! I've competed in a could a cappella competitions with jazz groups - tough rep. You guys handle it well. Be sure to embed that on the jazz group wall. A little description about your group, those songs, and the festival would be awesome. I'm sure folks will love it. Thanks.
Hey there Celeste! Welcome to the Musical Exchange community. We are glad to have you! You should also check out the Jazz group, when you have the time. I think you'd fit right in! Let me know if you have any questions! :)
