Célia Tiab sounds as heart-warming as Lianne La Havas in debut EP Cécé
‘Cécé’, the debut EP from Célia Tiab is releasing on Soft Boy Records Friday July 22nd. Pre-save the project and grab a ticket to the Soft Boy BBQ where you can see her perform the EP in full.
Discovered in Lyon, France for the first time, Célia used to draw heavy admiration for the likes of Nai Palm and Lianne La Havas. Soft vocals with great emotional impact.
Talking about Lianne La Havas, Célia Tiab confesses: “The melodies she comes up with, I found them unbelievable. This is so well thought out. And you can testify her musicianship, as voice and guitar are well tuned together, and it seems like she fuses the both of them. Her songwriting moves are very clever.” (source Podcast Memory Lane).
Today, she can be proud and as admirative of her own journey and the settling of her first body of work. Since her debut EP, Cécé, subtly stands as a project worthy of Lianne La Havas type of vibe and quality. Emotions captured within exquisite songwriting and exceptional execution when it comes to the production. Simple yet sophisticated at the same time, Célia offers a project in full bloom.
Speaking on the title of the EP, Célia says : “Cécé’ is the nickname I gave myself when I was little, and this debut EP feels like the beginning of the affirmation of my style and taste, but also the maturation I reached over the years of not releasing anything.” (source Hotpress).
Célia Tiab is a 21 years old French born singer, songwriter, and musician. Raised by musical parents on a melange of soul, jazz and folk music, she began playing in bands in her early teens, exploring the guitar and writing her own songs.
From her bedroom to the studio, Célia & Brién have flourished as a production and writing duo, with new work pending release on Soft Boy Records in 2022.
Let’s end this with a souvenir from her early acoustic performances back then in France.
