Born and Raised in San Diego, Lady Cellie started listening to reggae music at the age of 14. The first album she ever purchased was "Uprising" by the late Prophet Robert Nesta Marley. His music opened her eyes, ears, heart, and soul to reggae music. Diving into the world of reggae helped her to discover how much love this music has to offer the world to those willing to listen.
The focus of Cellie's music is to reach out to the people and open their eyes to the love reggae music brings. Singing cover songs at live shows by deceased artists such as Lacksley Castell, Gregory Issacs, Hugh Mundell and her favorite artist Bob Marley. Cellie was Nominated for "Best Female Reggae" by the Unsigned Swagg Music Awards that was held in Van Nuys, CA.
