"Her voice is spectacular. Cécile & Stevenson are a songwriting pair to watch out for" Jamie Cullum (BBC Radio 2)
At the helm of the new wave of UK jazz, Cécile has been receiving acclaim from audiences and critics on the strength of recent live and online performances during lockdown. Previous single ‘Blue Is Just A Colour’ premiered on BBC Radio 2’s Jamie Cullum show, following sell-out shows at UK jazz festivals including Edinburgh, Glasgow and London. Having picked up 'Best Vocalist’ at the 2019 Scottish Jazz Awards, Cécile was also nominated for ‘Vocalist of the Year’ at the Jazz FM Awards 2020. Taking inspiration from the likes of Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone and Gregory Porter and Celeste, Cecile’s eagerly anticipated debut album ‘Only The Lover Sings’ is set to be released on September 17, 2021 and will feature top flight international players; Euan Stevenson on piano, Mario Caribé on bass, and Max Popp on drums. The record will also feature live horns and strings, with Cécile and Stevenson co-producing the record. First single ‘Always Be Right For Me’ was released on 18th September 2020, followed by ‘He Knew How To Love’ on 12th July 2021.
