Cecile Doo-Kingue

An exceptional stage presence, award-winning guitarist-singer-songwriter Cécile Doo-Kingué blends blues, afro-roots and soul to create a unique sound. Considered one of Canada’s finest guitarists, the native New Yorker come Montrealer has shared a stage or recorded with Montreal Jubilation Choir, Eric Andersen, Blind Boys of Alabama, Bernard Purdie, Tricia Foster amongst many, and has released three albums to critical acclaim. Three 2015 Maple Blues Awards Nominations set the backdrop for the January 2016 release of Anybody Listening Pt.2: Dialogues, the second chapter of her Anybody Listening trilogy launched February 2015.

Powerful, sexy and raw, Cécile Doo-Kingué’s lyrics and sound, live or recorded, make for an enthralling and intimate communion.
