As a Washington, DC native, growing up immersed in a city synonymous with politics, it seemed like an obvious choice to pursue a career in public service. But at the age of 21, Cecily walked out of her International Relations classroom knowing that following a life of politics would leave her feeling hollow. She called her mother and told her that after 10 years of voice lessons and singing as a hobby, she wanted to dedicate her life to music. From that moment her journey began as an independent musician.
Cecily released her first full album, entitled Songs of Love and Freedom on May 4th. On this project, she has collaborated with several DC-based producers and musicians, including Aaron “Ab” Abernathy, Diggs Duke, Drew Kid, and Columbia Nights members Jason “Brother Spanky” Edwards and John Daise.
