The plights of an indie artist are many, but it’s rare that you find one that comes so strikingly out of the gate with such a high quality to their presentation and a powerful voice and aura like Celeste Stoney. A singer/songwriter that has worked with many other talents, she’s stepped up to the mic with her indomitable voice and laced us with the explosive debut single “My Kinda Crazy”.
She hits at a good time, as soulful white chicks with big voices are in again — but not specifically American ones. The homegrown Stoney hits the microphone like a whirlwind with her powerful vocal, cute video and even more so catchy and well written song. “My Kinda Crazy” is that fun, unabashed song that comes along every once in a while that both musically and lyrically can fit in a bunch of different arenas. Her voice has such bite to it that you know there’s no airs being put on. She can really blow.
What do you think of “My Kinda Crazy”? With P!nk doing folk music, Jessie J cavorting with Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande, and Joss Stone nowhere to be found realistically, can Celeste fill a void in your heart and ears? Her quirky style and dedication to big songs might be what the indie market needs. She makes me miss Nikka Costa in some ways.
Her new single is available on iTunes now, or you can listen to it on Spotify below!
