London singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Cerian, has been described as a cross between Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell and London Grammar. She weaves together melodic vocals and rich harmony with a love of poetry and literature, her songs often quoting from legendary writers such as William Blake, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lewis Carroll to create heartfelt poetic musical journeys. Within a month of releasing her first song online, Cerian was a BBC Introducing featured artist and has been played nationally on BBC Radio on a number of occasions, to much critical acclaim.
Cerian was classically trained in voice, harp, piano and guitar and brings together a wide variety of different influences and musical experiences along with the full utilisation of her extensive vocal range to create beautifully soaring songs. Having sung with the likes of U2, Radiohead, Thom Yorke, Sam Smith, Imogen Heap, Neneh Cherry, Tom Chaplin, Laura Mvula, Newton Faulkner and Charlotte Church, she is now taking on the world with her own brand of contemporary ethereal folk-pop and having successfully released her debut single “Wasteland” this Summer, now presents her much-anticipated second single “Seasons”.
“Cerian’s voice is simply stunning. A real wow moment. A real find. Robert Taira Wilson’s voice fits together with hers like a velvet glove; so much chemistry.
I am mesmerised. By Cerian’s voice. I am also mightily impressed with the self-penned song. It sounds as honest and as real as it gets on a record. I can hear and feel every ounce of passion and pain and joy and hurt and love that has gone into this one song, into this one track.
Music Republic Magazine tip Cerian for certain future success. From this one offering, she will win hearts and minds galore, and deservedly so. A major label deal to launch the UK’s next folk-pop star is not beyond the realms of possibility, to my ears. Quite special.”
Simon Redley (Music Republic Magazine)
