Today, we are introducing Celeste Waite, better known as Celeste, one of the most exciting young soul artists hailing from the British soil.
Currently residing in London, the 23-year-old singer and songwriter just completed her first headline tour in the UK and across Europe, with shows in Paris, Barcelona, Hamburg, and Berlin to name a few.
Celeste’s music is deeply personal, heartfelt, poetic, and mature, way beyond her years, and can be likened to names such as Snoh Aalegra, Sabrina Claudio, and Jorja Smith.

Despite her tender age, Celeste has already signed to Lily Allen’s Bank Holiday Records, opened for acts such as Rae Morris, as well as performed at some of London’s most acclaimed venues, including The Scotch of St. James.
Now, she is making her first moves towards A-list collaborations on both sides of the Atlantic off the back of the success of her debut EP Milk And Honey.
The visual story, created by London’s creative duo Undine Markus and Holly Rae Jones, takes us back to Celeste’s hometown Saltdean, just a few miles east of Brighton. The project offers an insight into the surroundings that have raised and shaped the artist.
