Celine Cairo is easily one of the most talented artists to rise out of the Amsterdam indie-pop scene. She attacks every song with a compelling power in her voice, almost demanding an instant reaction. Her vocal style is enthralling, captivating, and altogether angelic. She released a well-received EP in 2010 and now she’s looking to release her first full project.
A while back, she was awarded for one of her first singles, “In The Light”, and was then invited to perform it live at Carnegie Hall here in New York. This experience led to some serious exposure – including several television appearances and tons of live shows – and eventually she crossed paths with some top-notch producers (FINK in Britain and Bill Lefler in LA) and started making magic we hear from her today.
Artists like Cairo don’t come around often so when they ask for a bit of help, it’s only right to lend a hand. She’s come to Pledgemusic to crowdfund her first full-length album, Free Fall. It’s an album built from the ground up, with intimate lyricism and the bass-bumping, synths to put you over the edge. We can’t wait to see how it turns out.
Celine Cairo: Keeping It Comin’
Songs like “Friendly Fire” are exactly what we can expect from Cairo as she continues to develop. She graces the track with excellent vocalism and perfectly meshes with the instrumentation behind her. Picture her center stage in an opra hall, belting wondrously overtop the electro-synth orchestra by her side.
Then there are songs like, “Frozen Water“. Slow-paced and acoustically driven, the Dutch vocalist lets heartfelt lyricism tug playfully at your heartstrings as the piece rolls along. She really seems to find a home on these tracks but I’m anxious to see her perform something a bit more upbeat.
Give her a listen! “More” is an absolute masterpiece. The type to forge a permanent bond between singer and listener.
After really giving her a chance, I’ve set the bar pretty high for this one. Celine Cairo is a fantastically talented singer and has the drive to take her career to the next level. She’s still young and has so much room for growth. I’m excited to see how well things pan out for her.
