About Me

What would happen if you took a singer-songwriter from the seventies and handed her, via time travel, cutting edge electronic instruments? Something like this, probably. Cellar Door is a vocalist and composer with a sensibility that is straight out of the seventies and the eighties, but she's got her hands all over synthesizer components and starter sounds, which she builds like robots and grows like wee little alien beings at the laboratory on her kitchen table. Right now she's working on her "Songs of Earth and Mars" project, which traces one woman's journey through the spectacular melted purpley end of Planet Earth, the shimmering, poisonous aftermath, and the road ahead--which, naturally (or unnaturally?) leads straight to Mars. You can check her out on SC: https://soundcloud.com/cellar-door-675083343
