Singer/Songwriter/Comedienne Celia has been described as “A cross between an Earthy Enya, Joan Baez, and Tina Fey.” She dishes up the most delicious concoction of the silly and sacred delighting audiences across the nation. In addition to having the kind of silky smooth voice often associated with classic Celtic Singers, such as “Celtic Woman”, Celia excels at comedy. She often transforms right on stage into one or more of her alter-egos-whose antics typically leave the audience howling with laughter. With powerful, heart-felt vocals and wacky comedic improvisations, the audience never knows what will happen with Celia on stage.

Celia often uses sophisticated “looping” technology to perform duets, trios, and even larger ensembles with herself. Nothing is pre-recorded. She lays down a track then using the looping technology harmonizes with herself — all live and in real time. The result is an amazing listening experience for the audience.

Celia has opened for notable authors: Neale Donald Walsch, Marianne Williamson & Dr. Masaru Emoto, provided live music for the Off-Broadway production of Rum & Vodka, & has received a “Best Storytelling CD” nomination for Irish Tales by the International Just Plain Folks Awards (The Grassroots of Grammies). Her “Symbol” song has been named the “Anthem for the Veteran Pentacle Quest” in support of Religious tolerance & acceptance.

Celia is from Wisconsin and calls Prescott, AZ home. She is currently touring with her 10th album, Letting Go. No matter how many times you think you’ve seen Celia, you can never predict what she will do and how deeply she can reach into the soul of an audience. Celia’s range of styles and entertainment is far more than a concert. It is more like a full Cabaret.

“Go out of your way to see her. You won’t be disappointed.”
Rick’s Café Magazine

“Celia’s music calls women to their glory and men to their hearts.”
Marianne Williamson, Author A Return to Love

“Celia is an ambrosia of vitality flowing from sweet to sass with the utmost of grace.”
Gemma, “A Million Voice Choir”

(Mmmmm hmmmmm. Let’s do this thing!)
I Will Not walk into that big box store.
I do not need the crap they sell there anymore.
And I’m satisfied to simplify.
For the little things are the big things.

That drive thru window don’t produce my food.
I know it’s fast and it’s designed to taste real good.
But it’s plain to see it’s killing you and me
To eat so very far from the field.

Do you enjoy your air straight from the factory?
Do you enjoy the Tssssss of acid rain?
Do you like telling stories over forest fires?
Do you enjoy the thrill of hurricanes?

I Will Not drive a car that guzzles gas.
Just to get there wild and just to get there fast.
I’m a Green Earth Girl in a Black Gold World.
And I’m proud to put my money where my mouth is.

(Listen up now!)
That television don’t produce my news.
I’m much more picky about the truth I choose.
All that hate and war will bring us more.
I mean don’t ignore it. But gosh, don’t let it control you.

Do you enjoy the constant question: “Mommy, Why?”
Vacation photos of wilderness….cement?
Do you enjoy your barbeque up on the roof?
Cuz it’s flooding and you’re waiting for the….
Government. Ohhh!

I Will Not waste my breath on talking small.
I dedicate my voice to the love of it ALL.
And I still believe in love and peace.
And I have given my whole life to this dream!

Do you enjoy your air straight from the factory?
Do you enjoy the Tssssss of acid rain?
Do you like telling stories over forest fires?
Do you enjoy the thrill of hurricanes?
We keep doing what we do…
We keep doing what we do…
We keep doing what we do…
And we’ll get more of the same.

I Will Not walk into that big box store!
