Celia Rose, singer songwriter

Celia Rose, singer songwriter

Celia on stairsCelia Rose is an American musician, singer, songwriter, guitarist and pianist.  She has toured throughout North America, Europe and Africa.  A cross between Joni Mitchell, Patty Griffin and K.T. Tunstall, her songs have been called “wonderful, charming, fun, upbeat, positive songs with terrific vocals.”

 After completing her first album in 2000, Celia moved to Haiti where she introduced American folk and country style songs to the jazz/funk and kompa music scene of Port-au-Prince.  Working with a local band called Wesli Band, Celia’s name was known throughout the country as she performed regularly on radio and TV and alongside Haitian artists.

 She moved to Paris, France in 2002, where her band, Wrapped in Rain, completed a full length album, Butterfly, performed at various Parisian venues and was discovered by a talent scout and sent on multiple tours as U.S. Cultural Ambassadors to Africa.  Not only did they tour 8 countries in Africa but an up-and-coming Namibian film producer made a documentary of Celia and her band during a week long tour in 2005.

 Moving to New York City in 2007, Celia went on to complete her third album, Stories. While in New York, she taught songwriting for Harlem Children’s Zone, completed a master’s degree in music composition from NYU’s Gallatin program and composed music for the Dormia book series, Little Flower Yoga and dozens of other organizations.

Celia recently moved to Calgary and is excited to be working on her 4th album with some incredibly talented Canadian musicians, such as Russell Broom (guitarist for Jann Arden), Mike Lent (bassist for Jann Arden), Mike Little (keyboardists for dozens of big name artists including Tom Cochrane, George Canyon, Brett Kissel and Serena Ryder).  She is also a proud (and sometimes exhausted!) mother of three young children.
