Musician, singer and songwriter, Cécile was born at the west end of Brittany. This is where she discovered the celtic harp, as a teenager. Since then, she has kept a strong link with her native region - an everlasting source of creativity. Inspired by Celtic traditional music from Brittany and abroad, she discovers composition, mainly focused on harp and vocals.
Cécile is inspired by tales, ancient melodies and fairy moods - which are the bases of her musical world.
Performing alone, with her harp, she started singing in the streets and pubs, before meeting the musicians who would perform with her for many years, on stage and on recordings, creating a folk, both acoustic and modern atmosphere.
Her first self-produced records made her reach a wider audience, while she refined the arrangements and the records' productions. Thanks to many gigs and festivals, she travelled through Europe and from Asia to the USA.
In 2008, the release of the album "Songbook vol.2" - a more accomplished record - gathered more attention from the audience and also from the head producer of the famous Japanese animation Ghibli Studio. In 2010 she wrote and recorded the original soundtrack for the movie "Arrietty", which was a big success in Japan and in other countries. This soundtrack earned the "Soundtrack Album of the year" award and a "Golden Disc Award" in Japan.
In May 2011, she releases "Songbook vol. 3 - Renaissance", a more acoustic album, going back to her sources of inspiration, in a continued exploration of her pop-folk musical world, always inspired by the celtic culture, somewhat with an Oriental touch.
Cécile supports "Info Birmanie", a French NGO acting for people awareness of the political situation in Burma.
