Indie Music Spotlight on Celleste

We’re excited to be partnered with some really talented up and coming musicians who’s music will be featured in our jewelry videos.

One of the first artists we’re working with, Celleste, is a high-voltage singer/songwriter with a rocker edge and a sultry sound.

This Montreal native recently released her debut CD “Ready To Fly”. We’re thrilled to be featuring many of the songs off of her album in our jewelry videos, including her song “Yer goin’ down”. Check it out as the soundtrack for one of our fave SNO of Sweden pieces.

Celleste is a true indie artist with a DIY attitude, starting her own label, Mighty Music, with her producer, Eric Dick. Her music is a blend of rock, folk, blues, country and pop, that she likes to call “Modern Classic Rock”. Celleste explains how she found her sound, “I’d often hear Led Zeppelin blasting in my brother’s room while dad was strumming Chet Atkins tunes in the basement… then I got my hands on [Lenny Kravitz’s] “Are You Gonna Go My Way”, and [Sheryl Crow’s] “Tuesday Night Music Club”. Throw in some CCR, Black Crowes and Janis Joplin, perform it all like Steven Tyler and Madonna, and presto… you know all my secrets.”

Check out her brand new video for “Beyond Words”
