'A Beautiful Voice' Jools Holland
'Elegant New Vocal Star' The Guardian
'A Very Talented Singer' Cleo Laine (jazz singer)
Welcome to the website of genre-defying Singer-Composer-Producer Cecilia Le Poer Power. Cecilia's diverse music collaborations are a testament to the quality of her work. This year Cecilia was invited to tour with the U.K's best-selling Classical Artist Russell Watson, as his special guest. Her soon-to-be released debut album features Classical Brit winners Blake, Moya Brennan (Voice of Irish group Clannad), Catrin Finch (internationally renowned harpist and once the official harpist to the Prince of Wales) and Wells Cathedral Choristers. Cecilia's fully orchestrated, timeless and beautiful music alludes to her Celtic roots and has the power to leave the listener utterly spellbound. Martin Riley's cinematic orchestrations create dynamic, graceful and textured landscapes which have the power to reawaken our senses and hearts.
Cecilia's voice is much in demand for bookings at home and much further afield. As a soloist, Cecilia has performed at several major U.K venues including The London Palladium, Symphony Hall (Birmingham), Blackpool Opera House, The Barbican Hall (London), Glastonbury Festival and many more theatres and festivals across Europe. Cecilia's music has been used widely for placements in TV internationally (including BBC TV). Cecilia is also a passionate educator and her teaching work includes a decade at Bath Spa University.
As well as so often being described as the voice of an angel, Cecilia's voice could also be described as a cross between Enya and Eva Cassidy - perhaps the ethereal beauty of Enya combined with the free musical spirit of of Eva Cassidy. But, as helpful as comparisons may be for the unacquainted, through the timeless, cinematic and emotionally rich landscapes we are drawn into, Cecilia's voice unapologetically belongs to her...
'When I first heard Cecilia's voice I got lifted by powerful winds to sit with the angels and was given the privilege to witness and take part of the birth of a new one' George Acogny – Producer / Composer, Peter Gabriel
'A voice that is really special and unique. Amazing range and subtlety. Cecilia brings a whole new dimension to whatever she commits to' Charlie Jones – musician / composer Page & Plant / Goldfrapp
