Autumn Refresh with Cecily

Hosted at Your house

part of a series on Transit

About the speaker

DC-based vocalist and songwriter Cecily is known for her agile soprano and honest lyrics. Her current album Songs of Love and Freedom was named “Best New Soul on Bandcamp” by the Bandcamp editorial team, who described the project as “stirringly timeless and modern.”

Her sound, as soothing as it is rich, is musically mature, and rooted in a deep appreciation for mid-century soul and jazz, 90’s R&B, and re-imagined folk music. Yet her fresh faced lyrics boldly portray the heart young Cecily has fought for, and the wisdom of love earned and freedom gained over a life of being misunderstood and told she was “before her time” or “mature beyond her years.” This influence gives her work a unique sensuality that informs not only her vocal approach, but also her self-reflecting lyrics, grappling with self-acceptance, vulnerability, and rebirth.

We live in a time of perpetual uncertainty and seemingly endless transition and it can take a toll. Join us October 30th for a different kind of CreativeMornings/DC event. We will have music and meditation by the incomparable Cecily to help you recenter, recharge and refocus. Registration begins 10/26 at 10:30am!
