""Je ne veux pas faire de compromis de caractère", Petite Céline à VOA"

"Man Made Fire is an ingenious blend of world music, jazz inspired with an African touch. Songwriter, Céline is a queen of looping."

"Man Made Fire Album Review"

"This very versatile album has a mass appeal that would fit in at dance clubs, on the FM dial or could easily strike a chord with the indie-rock crowd. A listen that unfolds like a woman coming into her own, Celine brings us on a global adventure that you won’t soon forget."

"Petite Celine - Man Made Fire Album Review"

"In the tradition of pretty French hell raisers like Francoise Hardy, this formerly homeless busker shows she knows how to connect over so many lines you can't keep track of them all. A sparkling, shimmering take on modern indie pop that refuses to be pigeon holed, this a delightful up market take on indie pop that would be subversively at home playing in the background at trendy dress shops yet turn up most naturally at hip clubs later that evening. A modern sex kitten with so many tricks up her sleeve that you'll be dizzy in no time, this mega mash up of styles is a long way from mashed potatoes. Killer stuff throughout." - Midwest Record

"Petite Celine Gives Us A New Sound With “Man Made Fire”"

"This single ("Man Made Fire") is one unique composition! I have never really heard a sound like this but to describe it, it is like a blend of electronic, soul, alternative, and just all around sound! There are so many different sounds that melt together into one perfect sound that is really one of a kind. This could easily fall into some lounge or relax music vibes maybe even under a blacklight. This song truly just gives you all the feels. Sultry, lucid, seductive, layered."

"Petite Celine Interview with FemMusic"

"Petite Celine may have one of the most original albums this year. It is filled with arrangements that challenge the senses, and a catalog of languages that enhance the music."

"Petite Celine is based in NY and is influenced by her French and American upbringing. She has a history of acting at a young age. She has been a homeless busking artist in the past. Now she is making fusion more alive than ever."

"The Music CD Shelf: Man Made Fire"

"Franco-American indie singer Petite Celine presents Man Made Fire, her new indie pop album that freely incorporates global elements, even phrases from other languages (Spanish, Portuguese, French, or German) in brief passages. Passionate, vivacious, and brimming with energy, Man Made Fire sets the imagination alight! Highly recommended, especially for connoisseurs of the genre." - Midwest Bookwatch

"Petite Celine's 'No No More' Turns a Black-and-White Confession into Bittersweet Heat"

"The track's ("No No More") stark but potent groove and gorgeous floating harmonies form a perfect backdrop for Celine's voice, which swerves between moments of Blossom Dearie and Amy Winehouse, the racy and the sweet."

"Inspired by bi-lingual and innovative vocalists and composers like Camille and Regina Spektor, she pushes her arrangements and draws in more sources on her upcoming album, Man Made Fire."

Petite Celine is a Franco-American fusion pop artist & multi-instrumentalist based out of Brooklyn, NY. Born to a French Air Force colonel and an American lawyer-gone-psychic-detective, Celine rebelled into the arts, excelling first in acting, working with directors such as Steven Spielberg and Clint Eastwood by the age of 11.

Growing up in New York City at an international school for army brats and children of ambassadors and diplomats, Celine’s favorite day of the year was always UN day. In this unique program, all the kids would take the day off from curriculum and show up dressed in the garb of their native cultures, bringing with them food, toys, and art from their motherlands to share. It was there that she first found her love and reverence for world culture.

In her own right, travelling often between two homelands, Celine got to experience differences in international music first hand. French radio often aired a diverse selection of music, featuring a wide variety of languages - exciting Celine, a multi-linguist herself - while US radio cemented her love for American Pop.

But it wasn't until college, when Celine found herself homeless with only a small suitcase and the guitar on her back, that she started performing her own compositions. Busking on the streets of Lower Manhattan for strangers, she discovered the awesome power music has to bring people together from all walks of life.

Today, Petite Celine tours regularly with these influences, dressing the stages with her colorful LED art creations and youthful face paint. Petite Celine's music in essence is a celebration of culture: fueled by fusion and uplifted by her love for Pop. It’s the sound of a trip around the world taken by Kimbra, Jain, Sia and No Doubt. This can be heard in a wide variety of collaborations, but most notably on her newly released fusion pop album, Man Made Fire, which incorporates several languages, musical influences and instruments from around the globe.
