Biography

Cecily Bumbray is a talented young vocalist and songwriter, destined to make her mark on the music world and beyond. At the age of 22, she has participated in classical and gospel choirs, she has also sung in a host of school sponsored events and talent showcases.

Cecily describes her style as “unique,” because of the rich appreciation that she has for “the instrument that is the voice.” She has been influenced throughout her life by powerful vocalists and by a broad range of music including Jazz, Blues, Funk, New Jack Swing, and Hip Hop. A decade of studying and performing has provided her with the training to form a secure foundation, enabling this seasoned soprano to perform with confidence and ease.

Cecily recently graduated from historic Swarthmore College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and in Black Studies. She is now in the beginning stages of launching her career as a solo artist, preparing to release her first two singles – “Too Much” and “Crazy for You” – in September of 2012.

Of course, winning a Grammy for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and walking the coveted Red Carpet would be a dream come true, but Cecily’s ultimate goal is to be known as an artist who is consistent, conscientious, and caring of her art and especially of her growing numbers of fans.
