Music is full of tradition. Whether it’s an inspiring tune or a commitment to write music from the heart, Cece Yentzen has embraced these traditions while establishing a few of their own since first embarking on a career as a songwriter in 2003. She has been slowly crafting a body of work while maintaining her main role as "Mom." Cece is set to release her first EP this Fall 2020.
A Musical Journey
Cece Yentzen was born into a musical family in Louisiana; she grew up on piano, sang in choirs, then played marimba and xylophone in university percussion ensemble and marching band, then walked away from music in her 20’s and became a competitive bike racer. After a serious accident in 2003 left her unable to compete, her husband came home with a guitar and handed it to her. She thought he was a little crazy…. But was playing it by that evening, and was writing songs shortly thereafter. Her sound reveals classic Americana with a heaping portion of grit, and has been described as a mix between Nora Jones, Brandi Carlile & Sarah Jarosz.
