Lieder, an original band based out of northern New Jersey, displays an aggressive style of power pop, steeped in the tradition of American and British Rock & Roll. Originally formed in the spring of 2007, Lieder (which means “songs” in German) was personally given its name by rock legend Pete Townshend of The Who.

La Petite Celine

Born and raised in Manhattan, Celine started playing the piano when she was 7 years old, but you can definitely say she has been a performer since birth. Even at age 4 and 5, whenever her parents would have guests over, Celine always took it upon herself to act as the main source of entertainment- putting on shows, singing, dancing and even making paper jewelry for the invited guests.
Though piano lessons proved successful, Celine grew bored of reading other people's music and quickly realized she enjoyed much more writing her own. At 10 years old, she wrote her first piano ballad.
She then found her voice at age 12. She joined her school chorus and band (as a percussionist) and needless to say, they became her favorite classes.
With her new found singing voice and musical knowledge and training, Celine started putting lyrics to music and began to create song. At 15 years old, Celine discovered her mother's dusty nylon string guitar and immediately fell in love. She taught herself to play and from there, Celine was off to the races, constantly playing and always writing. But she wanted more. The thrill it gave her was incomparable to anything else. She she proceeded to teach herself trumpet, mandolin and a little ukelele as well.
Celine still lives in New York City and with a good number of original songs under her belt is ready to share herself with New York.
And with all the support she has received from the people around her in this beautiful city, Celine invites you to experience her art, her truth and to watch her grow even more.
