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, Jack Kerouac, 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. She recently enjoyed recording with Radiohead on their new album "A Moon Shaped Pool", and can be heard on six tracks.
Cerian was classically trained in voice, harp, piano and guitar and brings together a wide variety of different influences and musical experiences along with her extensive vocal range to create beautiful soaring songs. Having sung with the likes of U2, Sam Smith, Imogen Heap, 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.
Cerian is looking forward to her first official release of music this year - sign up to the mailing list to hear it first!
