Cecily

A brilliant, beautiful, and talented young lady, look out!”
- Grammy award winning recording artist Patti Austin

 

“After witnessing the Cecily Effect firsthand, it's safe to say that like the region that birthed her - she's got her own thing going!”  - Pook Elliot, Editor of Mafia Magazine

Cecily is a young vocalist and songwriter whose sweet soprano and honest lyrics have garnered attention and loyal fans not only in her native Washington DC, but also up and down the East Coast. Unmoved by passing trends, Cecily’s sound is rooted in a deep appreciation for mid-century soul and jazz, 90’s R&B, and re-imagined folk music. She describes her style as Acoustic Pop Soul, and has drawn comparisons to artists as distinct as Deniece Williams, Brandy, and Corinne Bailey-Rae.

Cecily has graced many stages and performed in front of audiences as large as 30,000. She has opened for Grammy Award winning jazz and soul artist Gregory Porter and for R&B star Johnny Gill. Beyond her hometown, she’s performed in Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, Richmond, Charlotte, and New York City. She has played at the legendary Blues Alley, as well as The Kennedy Center, The Hamilton, The Howard Theater, and Rockwood Music Hall.  Singing the National Anthem has become a hobby of hers, having sang for professional baseball, basketball, and tennis matches, and even in front of First Lady Michelle Obama. The stage has become a second home for Cecily, and audiences can tell that she is at ease and happy there.
