Trent Harmon holds the reigning title as American Idol. The Season XV victor originally hails from East Mississippi and immersed himself in music from an early age. From singing “Amazing Grace” with his family to starring in various musicals in college, Trent credits life on his family’s farm as a major influence on his music career. Less than one week after taking the title during the final season of American Idol, Trent entered the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, earning him a “hot shot debut” with coronation song “Falling," which was written by Idol judge Keith Urban along with celebrated songwriters Dallas Davidson and Brett James. Already in the studio, the 25-year-old musician is eager to begin recording his self-described “Country-soul” album and recently released his debut single “There’s A Girl” on FOX & Friends’ Summer Concert Series. Critics raved week-after-week following each of Trent’s “vocally gifted” (LA Times) performances as he covered hits by Justin Timberlake, Sia, Parson James, Percy Sledge and more.
Cecilia is an award-winning songwriter who began turning her ideas into songs at 12 years old. One of Cecilia’s first compositions won first prize in a contest. She spent her winnings on her first guitar and became a prolific songwriter. She recorded her songs and covers and gained an impressive international following on YouTube. Audiences liken her pure, raw style to the vocals of Adele, Katy Perry, and Stevie Nicks.
Tessa is a champion gymnast-turned guitar player, which surprised her family who thought she was more inclined toward sports than music. Her knack for performance before judges made a natural transition into playing before a live audience. Cecilia and Tessa made the rounds of local open mics and got rave reviews. That experience opened the door to playing at other live music gigs in Sacramento, Nashville, Fort Lauderdale, Boston, Baltimore, Washington DC, Virginia, New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New York, and the Philippines.
They are both versatile vocalists. Cecilia, with her powerful lead vocals, was the winner of Voices of Baltimore 2017, and Fox 45 and Z104.3's 2012 Baltimore Idol winner. Various recording artists seek out Cecilia to lend her vocals on their tracks. Tessa’s high, bluesy soprano makes for breathtaking harmony as she rocks hard on her acoustic guitar with her mature and unique style. Her style is dynamic, stunning, and artistic. In her own compositions she breaks rules and gets away with it. Many an experienced guitar player has marveled at Tessa’s guitar playing because of her youth, confidence, power playing, and ability to create a big, full sound — making an audience forget that there is only one instrument and two vocals. She plays hours of original and cover songs at gigs while singing, never stopping to look at the frets to check her precision … never looking at sheet music to recall how to play a song, and taking song requests without checking a book for chords.
Whether you like hits by Drake, Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, The Weeknd, Adele, the 1975, Rihanna, Charlie Puth, Prince, or Fleetwood Mac, you’ll like the “Cecilia-Graced” style, too. Although they most often play as a duo, they also play with their full band singing their originals as well as covers of popular songs.
