Celeste Krishna is a Southern expressionist music artist, songwriter, and producer originally from Birmingham, Alabama, who is now based in Brooklyn, New York.
With an ensemble of musicians she calls “Monarchs,” Celeste creates a range of poetic songs that have musical notes of Van Morrison, Lauryn Hill, and Björk.
Celeste is currently writing and recording a three-installation album series (“My Blue House,” “Blue Druids,” and “My Blue Path”), which is rooted in her personal examination of existence, family history, and life story. The color blue is her spiritual center. Her grandmother, aunt, and cousins share the name Celeste, which means “sky blue” in many Romance languages. Each of the women in her maternal line celebrate the color blue and gravitate to their own personal shade. Celeste's married name, Krishna, references a god in the Hindu tradition often depicted as a musician with blue skin. Through all this, blue has become her guiding color: It is her name, her childhood, her family history, and her purpose.
In her forthcoming album, “My Blue House", Celeste taps into that inspiration and hones her Alabama poet-pop sound. The album revisits styles of her early work, touches genres new to her catalog including jazz and gospel, and, as Flagpole has described her previous work, is characteristically "intensely personal and universal at once.”
