Independent Music Artist ‘Celiane the Voice’ Diversifies Her Brand with Music, Merchandise, Movies and More!

Bay Area-based Indie Artist, Celiane the Voice, parlays her business acumen into building a formidable brand—in the booth and in the boardroom.

When the pandemic struck, Celiane the Voice watched her thriving music career come to a screeching halt. Gigs were abruptly cancelled, venues were closed, ticket sales were refunded to the customers, concerts were indefinitely postponed and her career was at a standstill.

For the first time in her entire music career, Celiane did not to know if her career would be able to weather this storm (also known as the Coronavirus crisis). Just like other artist and musicians, she had to face the uncertain reality brought on by a Global pandemic that completely disrupted the entertainment industry. As the months progressed, she was faced with two choices: 1. Throw in the towel or 2. Reinvent herself. She chose the latter.

Eight months since the world as we knew it changed forever, Celiane the Voice made the decision to tap into her business savvy and build a brand that superseded music. She put together a Business Plan and started a company.

Her entertainment company comprises film and TV production, stage productions, creation of her own comic book, video game music, personal transformation courses, “Celiane the Voice” merch, building collaborations and a costume and set design entity.

“I’m an entertainer, but I also have a Business background so I knew at the onset of the pandemic that I would have to pivot if I wanted to save my career. I knew that it was no longer business as usual, so I tapped into my talents and skill set and diversified my brand”, said Celiane.

Celiane the Voice Her decision to reinvent herself has opened up a myriad of new doors for her this year and now that her music career is thriving again—she has her sight set on performing in Vegas one day, which has been a life-long dream of hers.

Celiane also has hopes to take her eclectic show on a tour across the country, as soon as it’s safe to do so again. Based out of the Bay Area in California, Celiane The Voice is a pioneering and dynamic singer who specializes in genre of Electronica Hip-Opera, which she created.

With a background in both Opera and Jazz and over twenty years of vocal training, both at UC Berkeley and through private instructors, she has developed a mastery over her vocals through hard work and dedication.

Through an understanding of genre and technique, she is able to borrow from a spectrum of musical influences to create a sound that blends electronic music, hip hop, classical, and jazz to create the new and exciting fusion that has become the genera of Electronica Hip-Opera. The eclectic nature of her work allows her to redefine her listeners’ idea of what is possible through music in a traditional sense, and her talent allows her to set the bar high when it comes to her production value.

Inspired by prolific artists such as Amy Winehouse, Daft Punk, and Pharrell, she has a taste for the unique and original, and that off-beat sensibility truly shines through.

With her music she is able to form true connections with her audience. Music is her passion, and her one true love; it is the thing that she is completely dedicated to and she views it as her better half.

Celiane the Voice While continually working to build up her repertoire and create a unique and memorable sound, she has performed live at events such as Afro Comicon, NorCal Cosplay Ball, NYE 2018, and Napa Smith Brewery, and she has hopes of touring internationally in 2021.

Her work can currently be found online on streaming platforms such as ITunes, Amazon Music, Spotify, YouTube, Soundcloud, and Bandcamp.

With a taste of ‘Thom Yorke’ on holiday with ‘Nick Cave’ and ‘Rufus Wainright’, Exceptional songwriter ‘Shayne Cook’ teams with the sweet ‘The City of Prague Symphony Orchestra’ to touch souls on ‘Epiphonetics’

Melbourne based singer-songwriter Shayne Cook is releasing another two tracks from his debut LP ‘Epiphonetics’ which is due late October.  ‘Restless Lovers’ and ‘Back to Love’ will be available on all digital platforms from August 25.

Born from a gentle descending guitar, ‘Restless Lovers’ is the love you had to have.  The one that’s intense, all consuming, knows how to trigger and will faintly beat in your memories with a promise of good love again.

The piano by Phil Turcio, Bass by Chris Bekker and the drum track from Josh Barber stay restrained but dance in response to the raw and reminiscent lyric.  Orchestral composition by Tilman Robinson and played by City of Prague symphony Orchestra builds on the rawness of this track to bring Producer Simon Moro’s focus’s each element of the song in its own sonic dimension and overall, letting the song guide the production to allow it be the most beautiful song you will here today

Listen to ‘Restless Lovers’.

‘Back to Love’ was inspired at a particular anxiety fuelled low point of life during the process of writing the album.  Shayne headed to one of his favourite Melbourne parks, Darebin Parklands to drunkenly wallow and sleep out in the car. It was also a full moon which is a stunning view in this park, so ideal for self pity.  The lyrics came to the song that night with a previous guitar part stuck in Shaynes head.  It deals with hitting lows as a person and supposing that happens with people as whole as well – and in that shit storm of feeling the only possible direction other than complete destruction is something that feels in some sort of direction closer to love.

Cook describes ‘Back to Love’ as initially a guitar-based folk song, “but when Chris Bekker came in and improvised a muted and percussive bass line, instantly we knew this is what the song needed – it transformed the song into something completely new.

The guitar driven song became a bass driven song which just really gave the darkness the song deserved. Simon also had an idea to get the orchestra to create the click sounds with their bow and instrument using a techniques called pizzicato.  This just added to the movement.  The last note of the song you can hear the snap of one of the violins bridge plates which we thought made sense just to stop it there”

Check out ‘Back to Love.’

‘Restless Lovers’ / ‘Back to Love’ will be released on August 25.
‘Epiphonetics’ will be released on October 23.

SPECIAL FULL SHAYNE COOK STORY

Shayne Cook Epiphonetics

Shayne Cook is a Brisbane-bred, Melbourne-based singer-songwriter who writes hypnotic songs ranging from dark, simple and haunting to unleashed emotional outpourings.   His musical influences span from Nick Cave to Ainslie Wills, Bon Iver to City and Colour, Tom Isanek to Thom Yorke, Emma Louise and beyond.  With his debut LP ‘Epiphonetics’ Cook has delivered an impressive introduction of 9 songs that highlight a  raw and open songwriter with notable talent, his music not convoluted or overly elaborate, his vocals both fresh and yet familiar, and the songs delivered with heart and honesty.

Atmospheric album opener ‘Stawell Gift’ is driven from a piano riff droning in a hypnotic loop.  Piano, on this and the rest of the album was played by the masterful Phil Turcio with Shayne and producer Simon Moro both adding keys/ piano elements to the track.  Josh Barber added all the additional mood on drums.  The song is particularly personal as it is an ode to Cook’s father, describing his history of being abandoned at an orphanage and eventual adoption.

‘Shouldn’t War’ with its hypnotic percussive colour, haunting legato piano lines and syncopated acoustic guitar is Cook’s response to a someone dear to him revealing having suffered a sexual assault.  The sense of sadness, anger and helplessness felt by both the victim and Cook stayed with him for a long time – his vocals giving full range of expression to the anguish reverberating in the listener.

Third track on the album ‘Blood’ is in essence, about feeling love, almost unexplainable, but coursing through your veins, and the idea of losing that beauty is like a death itself.  The song’s concept had been with Cook for many years, morphing and developing until what it is today.  Producer Simon Moro perfectly highlights each instrument in such an intricate way to allow Cook’s vocals to gently float on the rhythm to end up soaring through the mood shifts. Drums from Josh Barber, Chris Bekker on Bass, and orchestral composition from Tilman Robinson.

‘Matters of the Heart’ features a 12 string acoustic waltzing with the rhythm section while Shayne’s heartfelt vocals describe the decisions made by the heart and also those made by the head.  The impulsive and the considered; the questions we ask about what is or what isn’t “right’,  making a choice fraught with risk; knowing all well the probability of failure,  but still going ahead anyway.  The junction between letting go or holding on tight and seeing where love leads.

Cook originally thought ‘Matters of the Heart’ was a throw –away demo, but album producer Simon Moro heard it and suggested they see how it developed.  His ideas and finesse as a producer/ engineer – including utilising contacts at the City of Prague Symphony Orchestra for strings on the song, helped ensure the song made the cut for his debut, and indeed become the album’s first single, scoring support from the likes of Triple J’s Roots N All and CBAA / 2SER FM’s Dirt Music.

‘Restless Lovers’ Born from a gentle descending guitar, ‘Restless Lovers’ is the love you had to have.  The one that’s intense, all consuming, knows how to trigger and will faintly beat in your memories with a promise of good love again.

The piano by Phil Turcio, Bass by Chris Bekker and the drum track from Josh Barber stay restrained but dance in response to the raw and reminiscent lyric.  Orchestral composition by Tilman Robinson  and played by City of Prague symphony Orchestra  builds on the rawness of this track to bring Producer Simon Moro’s focus’s each element of the song in its own sonic dimension and overall, letting the song guide the production to entice you back for another listen.

‘Disaster Yet’ is an argument between lovers.  The fight is not the end of the world, and you know the moment you are lying in bed wrapped in each other that it is all going to be ok.  The string arrangement by Timan Robinson sends the song into a dream state leaving the guitar to create the misty lake the dream passes within.  Phil Turcio on piano, Josh Barber on drums, Chris Bekker on bass complimenting the simplicity and movement of the narrative.  Shayne’s vocals sit in a place between both the simplicity and sometimes underlying complexity of the subject matter.

Describing the inspiration for ‘City Fire Lights’ Cook explains “Music has always been my innermost desire to pursue.  Prior to writing this album I was working full time in finance. While I most definitely did enjoy my job I always felt music was my calling and time felt it was slipping away.  Walking away from comfort and predictability can be tough.  I also felt like I had left my run too late, that I’d put it off due to insecurity and waiting for everything to be right.  Turns out there is no such thing as the right time and you can spend all your time waiting for the right time.”  Phil Turcio on Piano a piacere with Shayne sets the introspect of the song while the full band kicks in with resolve.

‘Back To Love’ which received airplay from both Triple J’s Roots N All and Double J’s Stir It Up amongst others started as a guitar based folk song.  As Shayne explains, “When Chris Bekker came in and improvised a muted and percussive bass line instantly we knew this is what the song needed – it transformed the song into something completely new. The guitar driven song became a bass driven song which just really gave the darkness the song deserved. Simon also had an idea to get the orchestra to create the click sounds with their bow and instrument using a techniques called pizzicato.  This just added to the movement.  The last note of the song you can hear the snap of one of the violins bridge plates which we thought made sense to keep”.

Ritual

Imagine sunshine streaming through the window while you sit with your lover enjoying a coffee.  The romanticism of talking about owning that farmhouse one day and heading on a sea change to escape the city.  Sitting on the back steps together with a whiskey after a shitty week.  Unsleeving that Nick Cave record and listening to ‘Into My Arms’ while entwined with your lover for those few minutes.  These things.  The moments we cherish.

Shayne explains “I had originally written the solo on a midi keyboard with a saxophone as a choice of sounds it was a little corny but I liked it.  Uncle George’s piano accordion coupled with a lush reverb was the obvious replacement for this on the album and fittingly George is also a man that enjoys the simple rituals of life.”

“In all I feel this album was about me taking the leap into my passion and releasing music.

It’s what I feel I have to give to the world and this album is the beginning  of that”

‘Tiana Kocher’ is ready to ‘Take Over’ as she joins ‘Sage the Gemini’ on hot new single

Tiana Kocher teamed up with multi-platinum recording artist and rapper Sage the Gemini for her latest single release, ‘Take Over’, which she wrote with GRAMMY award-winning writer Candace Wakefield, and Sage the Gemini.

Releasing through Manila Music, the ‘Take Over’ music video was directed by Ali Zamani and produced by Zeus Zamani of AZ Films. Set on a Southern California sun drenched backdrop, ‘Take Over’ is a song about love, but through the eyes of both the male and female’s perspective of a couple finding each other and “taking over” the world together.

“Take Over’ was one of the first songs I ever recorded in Los Angeles,” says Kocher. “I recorded and filmed the music video over two years ago during summer 2018, and it was my first song working with a feature. I had an incredible time working with Sage, who ended up being one of my closest confidants in the industry. I consider him my big brother. I was fortunate enough to be able to work really closely with AZ Films to create a visual that matches the energy of the song. We always want to outdo ourselves, so we came up with the idea of filming the music video on a yacht! I had such a great time working with my closest friends on this music video.” 

Sage the Gemini has been featured on several award-winning songs including records with Chris Brown and Flo Rida, and has produced a multitude of songs, most recently for Tinashe and Tyga.

Tiana Kocher has collaborated with several GRAMMY award-winning recording artists including TLC, Faith Evans and Latin reggaeton J. Alvarez amongst others, as well as multiple award-winning record producers including Laney Stewart, Leon “RoccStar” Youngblood, Warren Kurtiss and Tyler Reynolds.

Take Over’ is available for download on iTunes and all digital streaming platforms including Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Tidal, SoundCloud, Pandora, DEEZER, iHeartRadio, Google Play, and Xbox Groove.

DISCOVER POP INTERVIEWS: British Pop Artist and Actor ‘Alexander James (AJ) Rodriguez’ talks about his fun catchy debut music video and infectious fresh falling in love pop single ‘Your Smile’

Alexander James (AJ) Rodriguez has dropped his debut music video for his second single ‘Your Smile’ – quarantine style.

MUSIC INTERVIEW:

We met with teenage pop and acting sensation Alexander James (AJ) Rodriguez who just dropped his debut music video for his second single ‘Your Smile’ – quarantine style.

Can you tell us a bit about your new record ‘Your Smile’?

I wanted to release a summer song that showcased someone’s smile using the backdrop of a few of Southern California’s stunning locations. I love the beach and so incorporating surfing or flip flops into the lyrics along with a girl’s smile was a must!

‘Your Smile’ is centered around a young girl’s captivating smile that is suddenly noticed by one of her friends, who is looking at her with a different appreciation for the very first time. Her admirer dreams of whisking her away for sandy toes and snow cones on the beach. The lyrics are about how she shouldn’t change a thing as she is fly just the way she is. It is fun, light and bursting full of summer!

Tell us about the music video.

Well, due to the current COVID-19 filming restrictions in Los Angeles, we had to be really careful, so I just had two of my friends and one videographer, plus my mum of course, on set.
We tried to incorporate some of Malibu’s most gorgeous hotspots, and of course me catching a wave at my favourite place, the beach.

Since releasing your debut pop record ‘My Crew’ in July, you have had some great results on the streaming services. Congratulations!

Oh yes, I am thrilled with the response to my music so far. We released my debut record ‘My Crew’ on July 7th and it’s so exciting to see it is currently pushing 200,000 streams. ‘Your Smile’ has been climbing at a rapid rate with over 105,000 streams on Spotify today. I am so grateful to everyone who has listened to the songs so far.

What’s up next for you?

I recording three songs at age twelve during the Los Angeles lockdown, and I am releasing one song consecutively each month, ‘My Crew’, which released on 07.07, ‘Your Smile’ on 08.08 and next in line is ‘Up To You’ on 09.09. I have a further three records penned for later in the year as well as a special Holiday song. I am super excited to tell you about that!

“I had a lot of fun co-writing and building on playful and flirty ideas for FWU, which was very much a collaboration with the other writers, Alex Jacke, Merges, and Rikki Randall.

“The idea for the music video was for my friends, dotted all around the world from London, Russia, Asia, and America, to remotely use Snapchat, in the safe environment of their homes, and create a unique video of their interpretation of the song. It was actually such a fun process, being able to see my friend’s reactions when they heard the song for the first time. It’s got quite the lyrics to it!
