She is not afraid to let her personality shine through her soft yet powerful voice.This singer-songwriter from Timmins, Ontario, charmed audiences while opening for Francis Cabrel's Canadian tour. In 2013, Céleste won first place in Ontario Pop (now Rond Point), earning her a spot in the Ma première Place des Arts competition and propelling her to the semifinals of the Festival international de la chanson de Granby.

After her unique talent won her a spot on Éric Lapointe's team, Céleste managed to reach the semifinals.Sophie Pelletier / QuébecAs she explores new horizons, Sophie invites listeners into a world that is simultaneously intimate, sincere and generous. She seduces audiences with new colours and sonic textures, fine and well-crafted lyrics, a mix of current musical influences and, of course, her elegant and singular voice. On stage, Sophie's best features shine through: her authenticity and her charisma. Clutching her guitar, she sings with passion and emotion.Amélie Hall / New BrunswickDiscover the soothing pop and vintage country sounds of this beautiful Acadian.
