Music Republic Magazine Exclusive: New Track From Celine & The Blue



Music Republic Magazine premiered Celine & The Blue’s impressive debut single “Just You” * and accompanying video in June – tipping the young Guildford-based band for future success. * See/hear that in our ‘Video Zone’ and ‘Undiscovered Zone’.

Well, we are at it yet again….With the exclusive first play anywhere of their excellent follow-up second single, “Hide In Your World”, and the accompanying lyric video.  The single and video are officially released on Wednesday 21st August.

This one has a tad more jazz feel to it, great ear-worm hook and Celine’s sultry vocal puts us in mind of Corinne Drewery (Swing Out Sister) and Basia Trzetrzelewska (Matt Bianco) and their uber-commercial and classy soulful jazz territory. Not too far away from Sade’s vibe either.

There’s a gap in the market for a band making that kind of sound today. We think Celine and her boys could well be the ones to fill it!

This is very much a multi-cultural outfit, who all met while studying at The Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford, Surrey. 20-year-old Italian Celine Buccomino has lived in the UK for just over two years now, and fronts this breezy modern five-piece soul-jazz outfit.

She is joined by Albanian Enea Lleshi on keyboards, Jarreau “Jay” Wetzels from The Netherlands on guitar, Romanian Horatiu Lehene on bass and Brit’ drummer Elliot Yarnall.

The band have more new music and YouTube videos in the pipe-line for release this year, and we are told that their third single will be an original called “Learn To Be Alone”. Watch out for that one here at


  • Catch ’em live at Guildford’s The Boileroom, October 7th.
