Cecily gives you bite sized but power packed bursts of Ear Candy. Her Soprano is sugary, light, and her lyrics are heartfelt. She uses acoustic soul music to tell stories with the hope of inspiring others to be vulnerable. Though she’s been studying music for over 10 years, she’s still growing and blossoming. Her newest project, Cecily just dropped last month. Lend it your ears.

My Interview on Sankofa Community Affairs

A few weeks ago I did an interview with Salim Adofo, one of the leaders of the National Black United Front, a community organization that helps feed, educate, organize, and uplift Black people. We discussed commercialism, movement music, and my education. He also showed my video “Too Much” and a live performance of my song “Pisces.”

Check it out. When he asked if I was interested in commercial success, what did you expect me to say?

I was on the Ion Network

This was pretty cool. Watching yourself on TV is always a little surreal.

I appeared on the show Metro Magazine hosted by Bonnie McDaniel. It was a truly enjoyable interview experience. She’s so personable and was very easy to talk to. We discussed my upbringing, my training, lessons I learned from my parents, and the recent uprising in Baltimore. I also sang a little bit of “Black Butterfly” (you know that’s one of my favorites!).

Here’s a few pictures and clips I recorded while watching it on my TV. Watch a short video clip here >>>> Singing Black Butterfly

Hoping to do many more interviews soon! I do like talking lol
