Growing up in New York City at an international school for army brats, Celine’s favorite day of the year was always UN day: All the kids would show up dressed in the garb of their native cultures, bringing food, toys, and art from their motherlands to share. In her own right, travelling often between two homelands, Celine experienced differences in international music first hand. French radio often aired a diverse selection of music, featuring a wide variety of languages - exciting Celine, a multi-linguist herself - while US radio cemented her love for American Pop.
It wasn't until college, when Celine found herself homeless that she started performing her own compositions. Busking on the streets of Lower Manhattan for strangers, she discovered the awesome power music has to bring people together from all walks of life.
Today, Petite Celine's music is a celebration of culture: fueled by fusion and uplifted by her love for Pop. It’s the sound of a trip around the world taken by Kimbra, Jain, Sia and No Doubt. This can be heard on her newly released album, Man Made Fire, which incorporates several languages, musical influences and instruments from around the globe.
