Alice Celeste is a singer-songwriter, visual artist, writer, and teacher based in New York City. She makes music that centers on emotion and storytelling. Her rule-breaking kind of unbridled and soulful expression makes way for vast experimentation in how she uses her voice, along with the piano and guitar.
Her commitment to stay true to the emotional experience of her songs leads directly to the fluctuations in rhythm and composition that are often features of her music. In fact, many of her songs are completely improvised, and all contain elements that are improvisational.
Similar to how she makes her paintings, drawings, and mixed media works, Alice creates playful, raw, and mystical music through tapping into the possibility of the present moment. She makes a conscious decision to center her creative work in the right here, right now.
In 2021, she released her first album of original songs called UNEASY STREET and her first EP Alice's Underworld, both of which she recorded from her Brooklyn apartment, singing while playing piano and guitar at home. In the past three years, Alice has released eight albums and seven EPs exploring existential questions, healing from sexual abuse, the complex beauty and pain of choosing to heal and break cycles, and more. Her most recent release is called In the Raw, a series of improvised songs with the guitar and piano about working through doubt and embracing the raw magic of creation without rules.
