"Cecilie Beck is a triple threat - a musician/singer, songwriter and multi-disciplined visual artist. But her most dangerous talent is her imagination and concept!
She creates a world where all her talents come together to paint a picture, when she creates songs. Her songs are synesthetic tone poems. They are 3 dimensional with all 5 (or 6) senses being put to work. She is the new renaissance artist! Open your ears, your eyes, the rest of your senses… but most of all your heart to Cecilie Beck."
