Singer/Songwriter Extraordinaire, Celia Slattery's original music encompasses elements of jazz, pop and folk/rock with perceptive lyrics inspired by Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Richard Thompson. Celia's songs would be perfect in dramatizations touching upon broad-ranging themes including friendship, the effects of war, and overcoming cynicism. She is backed up by a stellar group of musicians: Mark Shilansky on keyboards, Greg Holt playing Bass, Steve Kirby on guitar, and the legendary drummer Dave Mattacks (Jethro Tull, Fairport Convention).
Trained in theater, this singer/songwriter does it all. Her debut CD, "Movin' On" features tunes from her one-woman cabaret/theater piece "Moving Target." She also sings everything from folk to pop and rock, jazz and R & B. - Cheryl Sinapis, Boston Globe
