For singer-songwriter Cecil, music has always been her life's passion. Cecil started to show signs of her musical talents from a young age, inspired by the sounds of her mother's drum kit she began to sing in her formative years naturally progressing to sitting at the piano in her early teens.
Her musical direction quickly grew from piecing together adolescent lyrics to producing credible songwriting and captivating live performances. Inspired by the likes of Kate Bush and Lana Del Rey, Cecil began to develop her own quirky unique off-pop vibe of music which began the road to a whole new world of music.
Cecil comes from a small town in Berkshire but made the decision to move to London 4 years ago to be closer to the music scene. Cecil released her debut E.P in April 2017 which received support from BBC Radio 2, BBC Introducing, BBC Berkshire, BBC Solent, BBC Oxford, BBC Coventry & Warwickshire and many other regional radio stations.
The success of her debut E.P saw Cecil taking to stages all over the U.K throughout summer 2017.
Cecil opened the main stage at Jamie Oliver's The Big Feastival and was the only unsigned artist to play the main stage, performed at BBC's Carfest for Children In Need, The Royal Henley Regatta, headlined the o2 Academy Islington and many more.
Cecil takes her name from her great uncle Cecil McGivern who was Radio/broadcasting pioneer for British radio and T.V who wrote lots of wartime radio plays during World War II for the BBC. He also wrote the original screenplay and was nominated for an Oscar for the original 1946 version of Charles Dickens famous novel "Great Expectations' and he was also awarded a CBE. There are links between some of her Great Uncle's story writing and her future music.
The first single off her debut album "Queen Of The Cruel" was released on December 4th 2017 and has received support from BBC Introducing and BBC 6 Music.
Cecil is currently working on her debut album which is due out in May 2018 and is definitely going to be a one to watch in 2018.
