Celia's original music weaves elements of jazz and folk-rock with perceptive lyrics inspired by artists like Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Leonard Cohen. The themes of her original songs range from enduring relationships (Our Life Together) to staying relevant in middle age (Washed-up Middle Aged Wise Woman Blues). No Return is a song about the difficulty of creating change that was inspired by Hurricane Sandy and the Newtown shooting, while Another Sleepless Night speaks to the stresses of being a woman in the "sandwich generation". Crocus is a song about the death of a loved one.
In addition to the new songs, Celia will be playing some of the originals and favorite covers songs that were featured in her first two CDs, Movin' On and Cast of Characters.
Celia will be backed by a band that includes Jane Potter, piano, Thomas Hebb, bass, and Steve Kirby, guitar, along with well-known drummer Dave Mattacks. who has played and recorded with legends like Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Richard Thompson.
