Music Submission, Cee Boo

Artist or Band Name: 
Cee Boo

She was christened Sibusiso Msesiwe and now has donned the moniker CeeBoo and is brimful with flair and creativity in her latest offering Titled “Not The Same Woman” which is now available on all digital platforms.
CeeBoo is a versatile cross-over artist whose lilting and honey raw voices wafts swiftly between Afro-Soul and RnB. Born and raised in the coastal town of East London (South Africa), she started singing at the tender age of six, as part of her church choir and went on to learn to play the piano on her own.
“I am a self-taught musician. I enjoyed learning a skill without conscious awareness of the underlying processes of what is being learnt. In the process of curiosity you make mistakes, learn and grow because you have no scope or boundary to limit you. It is for this reason that I do not like being boxed as a musician” explained CeeBoo.
CeeBoo’s musical journey from church in later years migrated to poetry where she raided open mic sessions. Later, she would turn the poems into songs about her lived experience and things that she imagined. “The poetry sessions gave me the platform and confidence to be able to bare my soul infront of a live audience to examine what I had to offer artistically. When I turned to music my soul just soared, backed by the confidence that I was in full control expressing my art” chimed CeeBoo.
In 2010 as part of Elements of Soul, a touring venture which she wrote and produced the music, toured South Africa and Namibia. Their album was called Music in Me and helped profile her musical prowess. The musical odyssey culminated with Breaking Dawn her solo debut album. “Elements of Soul was an opportunity to test the market on whether they will receive the kind of music and message I wanted to deliver. It was a platform to hone my skills as an artist and focus on chasing the dream of making music to soothe, entertain and express myself” added CeeBoo.
CeeBoo credits her family and children as her greatest inspiration “I am moved by helping others especially the vulnerable youth. I am preoccupied with ensuring that young people find their purpose in life and blossom in the strengths” charged CeeBoo.
CeeBoo enjoys singing “about life, love, positivity, growth, faith and humility. I write and sing about relatable stuff. One has to be able to related to whatever song and genre they listen to. It is for this reason that I migrate from time to time from RnB, Soul, Deep House and Hip Hop. I do not make music for a particular target market or audience, but express myself for all to enjoy” concluded CeeBoo.

Phil Matthews a.k.a. the Village
Introducing England’s best kept secret............
The Village
The Village is the brainchild of eccentric music-maker Phil Matthews.
And, if you’ve never heard of him then it’s probably the fault of the UK’s
music press - although some far-sighted journalists (and thousands of
music fans) have been shouting his name for years. In fact he’s spent
around one whole year at the top of the UK’s folk charts........
A familiar sight in the North of England, Phil has begun to seek out new
musical territories to conquer with his original music - music that has been
compared to Robyn Hitchcock, Syd Barrett, Neil Finn, Paul McCartney, Bob
Dylan.......the list just goes on ! But The Village is so much more than
comparisons to other stars. The Village is quite simply the voice of
middle-aged England - and there’s a lot of us out there !
