Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Celia’s music is soulful and sensitive. Her voice is flexible and her songs resonate.

“Like You” is a groovy number. Celia blends folk with r-n-b and it works well.

“Magical” is a sultry song where Celia sings like Lauryn Hill. “Hell is in Your Mind” is a rockin’ song that sounds rather like PJ Harvey. It puts the emphasis on Celia’s extraordinary voice.

“No Good Man” is a classic blues belter. Celia puts her heart into this song of a bad man. “You mistook me for your ma” she chides.

“Don’t Dance” shivers with rage. It’s one of the singer’s more folksy songs.

“Break” is the work of a gifted artist.
