My name is Cecilia Del Bono, I’m a singer and a songwriter. My musical roots? Nu Soul and contemporary R&B. Music runs in my blood since I was a child: at the early age 7, I discovered the piano and then I discovered my voice, unavoidably, such as all things you deeply love and cannot live without just because you were born with them.Therefore I carried on, and I approached the guitar: it has been a revelation, because from there on I started to write my own songs.
I love to tell stories; I love to sing about mistakes we do everyday, fall over and rise up again, wrong feelings and those you can’t help. I believe that being gifted with talent is not enough: you need to take care of it. For this reason I went through a colorful journey, which has certainly enriched me. Today’s decisions determine who you’ll be tomorrow: I chose music right away, without compromises. In 2010 I got a Singing and Jazz Techniques diploma issued by ‘Scuola Civica di Capannori’; two years down the track, in 2012, I graduated from a music high school in Lucca; my specialization was in classic guitar.
From there, an ongoing personal journey rooted in memories brought me to blending myself into the music. At home we used to have vinyls of the bigs, Italian and foreign: from Stevie Wonder to Aretha Franklin and Lucio Battisti. We used to spend our Sundays listening to music in the living room.
Cecilia è una cantante e songwriter Lucchese. Nel 2015 esce il suo primo EP ‘Timeless’ come tesi di laurea per Essex University of London. Composto da 5 brani inediti, l’album è costituito da sonorità che spaziano dal Neo Soul all’R&B, così da creare nelle differenti tipologie un viaggio che di brano in brano, racconta parte della sua vita. Il percorso si amplia con un repertorio di brani inediti in Italiano. Solo musica originale, una chitarra e una voce che hanno voglia di raccontare.
