We had the good fortune of connecting with Ceci Bastida and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Ceci, how do you think about risk?
More than anything I think we should be honest with who we are and the art we are making and that sometimes means taking risks, not going on the path that seems most likely to guarantee success. I think that the way I make music could be considered “risky” because I’m trying to experiment as much as I can, explore different sounds and write about things other than romantic love all the time.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’ve been making music for a very long time. I’m excited about the album that I’m working on right now and that will be released in the fall. It hasn’t been easy and it still isn’t. Being an independent artist means you have to do a lot of the work that doesn’t have anything to do with making music and it’s hard but I’m happy that I’m able to do it. I’m grateful that I get to do what I love.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Independent artist that are staying true to themselves
