Artist Case study: Blue Celestial
Blue Celestial is an artist who combines her feminine and masculine energies, fusing hard raps with angelic singing and poetic, political lyrics. Her music draws influences from rap, R&B and K-pop music.
She has been writing songs for a long time, developing her voice along the way.
‘I didn’t take music seriously until I heard my voice and saw my potential. I was scared which is why you have to find a way to have support in the industry’.
She sees her music journey as a way of taking control of her life and wants to break the cycle of fear within herself because she believes that anyone can achieve something, once they put their heart into it.
Blue Celestial was part of our 2nd round of Project LIVE in 2023. She joined this project to kick start her music career and prove to other artists that project live is a place where you can gain exposure and open a path for your dreams.
During the project, she created 3 original songs which she honed through live rehearsals with a band, preparing for the final showcase. Thanks to the patience of the band, and help and support from Musical Director Lisa Millett, she was able to beautifully showcase her music on stage.
She says her favourite part of the project was:
‘Meeting and connecting with people. The most awesome part was hearing new voices and just supporting each other’.
She believes that project live helped her to develop her craft through radio interviews, music masterclasses, learning to adapt through the process, as well as taking things under pressure.
‘2Funky led me to the artist I am today because of their help and support; helping me with exposure and taking my first steps into the industry’.
Despite the project being over, Blue Celestial is determined to work on more collaborations with other artists, gain new performance opportunities and work on new music for an upcoming EP.
Take a listen to her music which is family friendly, and aims to inspire adolescents by speaking up from abuse and knife crime, rather than promoting any negativity.
‘Live life with no limits and no instructions’.
