Band Info


Introducing David Celia, based out of Toronto, Canada - a world class musician who has played for audiences all over Canada.
With regards to his musical style, it has been described as "roots-rock with hints of folk wrapped up in a pop package".
Flawless 3 and 4 part harmonies are usually the first thing that audiences are drawn to in the live set but ultimately it's the songwriting that gives the music a timeless feel.
David has received plenty of radio play on CBC Radio in Canada as well as on the BBC in the UK, featured recently on Radio2's highly regarded Bob Harris Show.
In Dec. 2006, David had the pleasure of being asked to play sideman/guitarist with legendary country-rock music innovators, Ian and Sylvia Tyson at a rare performance in Toronto(Hall of Fame Induction). He's since been featured on the new Colin Linden produced "Quartette" record
David earned kudos from EMI Parlophone artists The Divine Comedy when they asked him to open up for them in Toronto.
In July '07, David played Canada's historic Mariposa Festival(before Gordon Lightfoot). He also recently played Blue Balls Festival in Lucerne opening for Elvis Costello and Badly Drawn Boy.
"Excellent musicianship..... elegant and melodic" Neil Hannon, The Divine Comedy
"Celia's stage presence and charisma hold the crowd like a rabbit in car's headlights." Flicky Harrison, The Evening Advertiser Swindon, England
"This is Superb" Bob Harris, BBC Radio 2
"Really good music" Hilly Krystal, CBGB's New York City
"This is something special" Andy Lowe, 12 Bar Club London, England
