We had the good fortune of connecting with Celeste Scott and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Celeste, other than deciding to work for yourself, what else do you think played a pivotal role in your story?
The single most important decision that contributed to my success is Leaving my 9 to 5, to following my heart, and taking the biggest risk to do something that I love as I started from scratch, to building my way to cultivating multiple outlets of success.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
What sets me apart from others is my tenacity and persistence also being multicultural gives me a bigger perspective on life. I am most proud of myself for not giving up through all the hardships I’ve managed to stay levelheaded and grounded. How I got to where I am today is cultivating and staying consistent align myself with like-minded peers so we can make the best art. I’m excited for new endeavors in my artistry and my next single “Otherside” is coming out soon following an EP.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would take my best friend to the self realization center in Malibu and just enjoy the beautiful space there together and relax our minds. One of my favorite places to eat has an amazing view, Geoffrey’s in Malibu along with Katana in West Hollywood. We would also take a whole day trip to Disneyland because who doesn’t love Disneyland. Also the Korean spa or any spa is one of my favorites things to do when I want to wind down, so we would probably end the trip there.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I’d love to give a shout out to my dad who has been my biggest mentor and supported and encouraged me throughout my entire career. Bob Robinson my musical mentor, he has really helped me mentally with my musical journey and drops major gems so I can learn To cultivate to be my best self as a musician. My first vocal teacher Sarah Taylor and Paul Horabin who taught me the fundamentals and studio etiquette. The OG mentor Charles Farrar the first Producer to put me in rooms and really believe in me.
