Musician/Singer/Songwriter, Fashion Designer, Visual Artist, Cen’C Love is a 21st century renaissance woman.
Born in America to Caribbean parents, Cen’C was raised between Kingston and Atlanta spending time equally between the two.
In Atlanta, she attended the Dekalb Scool of the Arts. There along with talents such as young R&B crooner Lloyd and professional dancer Saidah Nairobi among others, she studied dance, drama, writing and was trained in classical voice by Jamaican born opera singer, Mrs. Dawn-Marie James nee Virtue.
Cen’C has the sultry voice and soulful sounds of a Billie Holiday, the musicianship of Lauryn Hill and the verbal wit of Jill Scott.
For Cen’C Love art is a lifestyle. Traveling throughout most of her summers with her fashion designer/dancer mom she attended art and trade shows around the US where she received the inspiration that she now applies to her work.
None of this should be surprising since she is the prodigy of the illustrious Wailer family of Reggae and the daughter of founding member of the acclaimed group, Neville Livingston, AKA Bunny Wailer.
The Wailer legacy is clearly apparent in Cen’C’s socially conscious songs such as SYSTEM about the “Babylon” matrix-type control system, and THESE LIES about women with low self esteem and their obsession with artificial identities. Her message of love is poignant and inspiring in songs like PARADISE and HEY YOU, stripping away the fear of baring our souls to love.
In addition to music, Cen’C embraces a natural holistic lifestyle through the practices of Yoga, Meditation, Qi-Gong, and holistic nutrition. She is a very environmentally conscious woman who was raised in a green household before green became the buzzword it is today.
Always on a quest for WISDOM and “OVASTANDING”, Cen’C loves to love and shares this love through her music.
In her own words:
“I was born free with the real truth inside of me,
Guided by the will of The Almighty.”
