Meet CeCE

Evolve or die. It’s a simple maxim that artists who have the wherewithal to challenge their
creative acumen choose to follow, while others simply stand pat and look to skate by on the
laurel s of their prior successes. Naturally, Nashville-based singer/songwriter CeCe Hetrick is
most decidedly in the first camp as she looks to springboard from the sonic coolness of and
warm reception to her prior indie releases with a brand new series of singles — starting with the
infectious groove of “Anytime Soon,” which is set to be released via digital platforms on August
24, 2018.

“The new stuff I’m doing now is more like, ‘Okay — let’s get a little more real. Let’s be a little
more honest with ourselves. Let’s talk about what’s happening right now, and what’s going on in
the world,’” CeCe believes. “My next few singles will have that same message of, ‘Let’s build
each other up. Let’s fix what we see as being broken. Let’s be blunt about it, and just get down
to it.’ The challenge as a writer is to keep being true to yourself and keep saying what you feel
— but also come from a place of kindness. When you say what you feel, listeners really
appreciate that. A lot of times, people feel they can’t say what they want to say, so I like the idea
of me being able to be a vessel for them. I want to be the person who maybe inspires them.’”
CeCe feels her rightful artistic position resides in being in front of an audience, any audience,
night after night. “I just want to get out there and play,” she declares. “Releasing new music and
new singles is great but, really and truly, people don’t get the gist of what I’m about until they
see me live. I feel like playing live also shows exactly who I am as an artist. And performance is
pretty much everything for me.”

What does CeCe want an audience to get out of attending one of her shows? “I want them to
feel like they went back in time, like it’s been an authentic, old-school kind of experience,” she
theorizes. “It’s nothing flashy, either — we just let the music speak for itself. Sure, you can hear
my music through your phone or out of your car speakers, but you need to see me face to face
to get all of it — to experience the energy I like to bring to the stage. And I’m always excited to
see the way people have so much fun at our shows — at least, they look like they’re having
fun!” she concludes with a hearty laugh.

As she forges her new artistic path with this upcoming series of fresh and exciting singles, CeCe
Hetrick feels nothing can stop her. “I just gotta keep going,” she believes. “And I feel like I have
a lot to say as an artist, whether people want to hear it or not.” Not to worry, CeCe — if “Anytime
Soon” is any indication of where you’re headed, we’ll all be along for the ride for many years to
come.
