As the music industry has evolved, especially the independent music industry, there has been more of a call for artists to be wide open with their thoughts, lives, and music. Some would call it transparency. Who better to be transparent that our latest find Cello/Phn (Cellophane)?
The New Orleans, Louisiana native has been a fanatic about music for as long as he can remember. He poured this passion into songwriting and developing his musical talents. Cello/Phn was blessed with an upbringing that exposed him to many different styles of music. His own sound is a unique blend of soul, indie, R&B, and even a little psychedelic. This no holds barred approach has landed him his own alternative touch that can appeal to lovers of all these genres.
As a songwriter Cello/Phn pays homage to his influences and combines it with his personal memories and meanderings. His music shows the colorfulness of a boy who has just discovered the world and at the same time taps into real issues that many shy away from writing about.
For his new single “See Me”, Cello/Phn eases us in with a mesmerizing sound that oozes along painting a real picture of life. The listener feels cozy and safe as the somewhat self-defeating lyrics become very relatable. We have all had the feelings that he shares. This vulnerable transparency makes “See Me” reach deep into the soul.
