Cecily – Pisces

Congrats to soul singer Cecily on winning Best Soul Album at the reborn Wammies this past weekend! Last year’s Songs of Love and Freedom is a gorgeous journey from start to finish, and we’re pleased today to show you the music video for its lead off track. “Pisces” is a classic ballad of healing through flowing water, and this video features plenty of it. Director Muse Dodd shot Cecily on the beach and submerged in a flower-filled tub on a recent trip to Cuba. Makes us want to book a flight there and play in the waves all day.

Cecily – Real Love

Sweet chanteuse Cecily recently released her first music video for “Real Love”, a single from her 2015 self-titled EP. Describing the concept of the video, Cecily writes “I believe that real love, with no ego, is a revolutionary act. In today’s world, wealth and possessions are glorified and almost made holy by mainstream media. In this video, I wanted to show two people realizing that grandeur and material desires are inconsequential compared to their love of each other.” See Cecily open for touring pop soul act Lawrence at SongByrd tonight in Adams Morgan.
