Cece Coakley is finding her sound in real time. Influenced by songwriting greats like Brandi Carlile, Taylor Swift and Phoebe Bridgers, Coakley has a knack for making ordinary moments feel monumental. Over the course of 2021, the 20-year-old singer-songwriter began turning her dreamy guitar ballad demos into fully realized songs. Her debut single “Cliché,” released earlier this year, has garnered over half a million Spotify streams to date. On her upcoming debut EP, Coakley digs deeper, skirting the line between indie and americana over sliding electric guitars. Musing about romantic clichés and hookup culture with a wisdom beyond her years, Coakley is an old soul living in the digital age. She has a gift for crafting moments into songs, a powerhouse voice to share them with, and nothing but time.
