Watch & Listen
Known for her sweet soprano, honest lyrics and pure vocals, Cecily brings her own vulnerability to each song, telling her story, and hopes that, at the end, the audience feels vulnerable enough to tell their own stories.
In her hometown of Washington, DC Cecily has opened for Grammy Award winning jazz and soul artist Gregory Porter, R&B stars Johnny Gill, Kenny Lattimore, and Elle Varner, and alternative soul pioneer Bilal. She has played at the legendary Blues Alley, as well as The Kennedy Center, The Hamilton, The Howard Theater, and Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club. In 2017, Cecily and her band were invited by the US Embassy to perform in Colombia at the VI Annual Mompox Jazz Festival. While there, Cecily also presented a masterclass for local vocal students.
Cecily released her first full album, entitled Songs of Love and Freedom on May 4th. On this project, she has collaborated with several DC-based producers and musicians, including Aaron “Ab” Abernathy, Diggs Duke, Drew Kid, and Columbia Nights members Jason “Brother Spanky” Edwards and John Daise.
Cecily is currently a Strathmore Artist-In-Residence, and will present her album release concert at her opening performance at The Strathmore Mansion on May 9th.
Bree and The Reeds
Bree and The Reeds with founding members Bree Reed and Joe Tisdall have been writing and performing together since 2011 while studying music at Bard College. Their sound is reminiscent of traditional R&B music with strong Jazz undertones. Bree and The Reeds perform with both a full band and as an acoustic duo. They have played various venues throughout Philadelphia and NYC such as: World Cafe Live, Bourbon and Branch, Star Fusion, and Banyan Gallery.
