That's what strikes me the most about Celeste's music: it has a very "real" and authentic element to it. The sound is very true, passionate, and trustworthy if that makes sense. I am not hearing anything fake or overly produced; rather, it's just all raw and real goodness. And while I've captioned this article as "Next Pop Star", I'm not entirely sure Pop is an accurate label for her music.
According to her website, Celeste is a current student of the Belmont University School of Music in Nashville, Tennessee. Before that, she was living in Slovakia with her Swiss-American family, and before that she was living in Alaska until the age of three.
Her most current album Don't Look Back was released in April of 2012 with several hit singles, including "Bleeding", "Nobody Knows", "Don't Look Back", and "Run Run Run." This album quickly rose to the tops of the charts in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. I believe it'll rise quickly here in the states, too, especially with her presence in Nashville and the surrounding music community.
