Biography

British singer-songwriter Celeste
Epiphany Waite, known simply as Celeste, brought together British soul with
bluesy jazz and R&B melodies. Born May 5, 1994 in Culver City, California,
to an English mother and a Jamaican father, she moved to Britain with her
mother when she was three. As a young girl she was exposed to soul and jazz
greats such as Aretha Franklin and Ella Fitzgerald and in her teens began to
shift her interest to the likes of Thelonious Monk, Koyo Taylor and Sun Ra.
Meanwhile, her vocal talents were being shaped in church and she was writing in
her spare time. By the time she arrived in college she had opted to pursue
music, and outside of school she was playing with friends and covering the
likes of Sly & the Family Stone, The Clash, The Specials, Janis Joplin, The
Moody Blues, Thelonious Monk, Ray Charles and Alice Coltrane. Her debut single,
“Daydreaming”, came out in October 2016, and then her debut EP The
Milk & the Honey
the following March. In 2018 Celeste made the move to
Polydor Records and released the EP Lately, featuring collaborations
with the Gotts Street Park collective. In 2019 Celeste won the BRITs' first
Rising Star award and put out Compilation 1.1, a collection of
everything she had released to date. January 2020 saw her release the single “Stop
This Flame”
, and enjoy a number 1 UK pop hit as part of Live Lounge
Allstars with “Times Like These”. Her debut album, Not Your Muse,
came out in 2021.
