Unfltrd Feature: Artist/Musician – The Silent Celeb
We had the privilege of hosting Unfltrds first #Unfltrd15 on Instagram this past week. #Unfltrd15 is a worldwide search for singers, dancers, rappers, DJs, overall musicians thorough social media. Our goal is NOT to sign artists, but simply to help give exposure and love to those who may not have the means to gain it. We love music and art and anyway that we can give love to those artists, we want to be part of it. The goal is simple. SUPPORT!
We reached out to the public to search for new and noteworthy talents from around social media in hopes to highlights some interesting new talents and help expose to them to the world. Some of our submissions were from new artists, some old and some who just wanted some exposure. Truth be told, we were overwhelmed with love from our first contest and came across some really great talents.
As an incentive for participating in our contests and discovering these new talents, a winner would be chosen and featured right here on our website. This serves as a highlight to the artist so that they can gain further exposure in whatever they are trying to achieve. We want these artists to continue to grow and be successful. So without further ado.
We present our first winner of the #unfltrd15: @thesilentceleb. Check her out on Instagram.
Hailing from the Bronx, she has marched on to the scene as a singer/writer, and has made her way through the various stages of NYC with her soulful sound and humble presence, and continues to push her career forward. Much success. Check out her bio below. Here more sounds from The Silent Celeb on SoundCloud.
Bronx, New York, the original home of hip hop has given birth to this 20th Century’s Hip-Hop Soul phenomenon. She is one of a kind. She is in a class all by herself. One part singer, one part writer and all parts humble…She is The Silent Celeb. This R&B female artist sings with an old school soul but can fall in line equally with the greatest of MCs, both female and male. Knowing that she is not the norm in this industry serves her well, as it motivates her to bring it every time…and that she does. Her music is a soulful and sexy fusion of Jazz, R&B and Hip-Hop all in one. She caresses the microphone like she was born with it in her hands. The Silent Celeb has solidified her spot as one of the best R&B artist to emerge in her time. Compelled by the likes of Missy Elliott, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott and Marsha Ambrosia, her voice and lyrical genius carry a truth and a confidence that lulls you in and keeps you coming back for more but it is her very own life experiences growing up in the Gun Hill section of the Bronx that allows her to demolish any beat she encounters, singing from her soul and breathing life into a track.
As a singer and performer since the age of four, she’s been perfecting her style and skills for years and her timing could not be better. Being released in a time where the industry and society have become more open and accepting of alternative lifestyle and music. Her music remains timeless and universal. “I write for the masses, I have something for everyone.” Good music is good music and The Silent Celebs’ music is not only good, it transcends boundaries…be it age, gender or genre.
Silent Celeb has been labeled as the “Next Up” in her generation. With accomplishments such as winning Grand prize at SOBs for the Faces in the Crowd competition as well as performing at the Annual DJ Magic Car Show in Coney Island and her upcoming performance for The Brooklyn Music Festival this artist is surely on her way to greatness. The Silent Celeb has worked with an assortment of noteworthy artists and producers in the underground industry as well as the main stream. Her consistency and dedication has gained her the respect and acknowledgement of any artist she encounters. In 2010 she was nominated for Best Singer/Solo Artist by Urban Lyfe Awards going against Monifah and again in 2011 when she was chosen as a finalist for the Essence Magazine Star Search she knew this was what she was destined to do.
“Your Sound is like a punch to the stomach- so strong so raw so refreshing…a true New York soulful sound” – Kelly Price.
The Silent Celeb lives by the mantra – “life is filled with ups and downs, some people are just afraid of heights!”- And at this point in her career The Silent Celeb is soaring higher than ever.
So…if you are open minded and like good music… and ready to not just hear, but FEEL the music…Blanco is for you. And if you are ready for an artist you can relate to, even if you feel she’s un-relatable…Blanco is for you. Stay tuned for major moves from this on-the-rise Celeb.
“They say the dangerous ones always move in Silence”
