Celia - resizeCelia Slattery‘s original music weaves elements of jazz, pop and folk/rock with perceptive lyrics inspired by artists like Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen.  She also covers everyone from Ella to Adele, giving context to the music through humor and stories.  Celia released her third CD last year, Our Life Together, a “wonderfully crafted album that’s highlighted by soul-stirring performances both musically and vocally.” (Metronome Magazine)
