Artist Bio

Influences:   The Beatles, Prince, Ryan Adams, Radiohead, Joe Cocker

Singer, songwriter, pianist. Born, raised, and living in Los Angeles.
Music teacher by day, penniless musician by night. Live Theatre Music Director and Orchestra Conductor in between naps.
Pet parent to Wolfie - my biggest fan.

I record everything on Garageband. No fancy gear. Just my live mic, my keyboard, sometimes my ukulele, and anything else I can find lying around in my apartment. I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm just trying to get what I hear in my head outside of my... head.

I love collaborating, so if you want vocals or music to lyrics or lyrics for music, hit me up!
(Update: I've enabled my email address for logged in FAWMers. Let the collabs start!)

This is my 3rd Fawm! You can hear the fruits of my last 2 FAWMs here:

I scored my first short film in 2014. You can watch it here:
It's a film noir and plays like an episode from Alfred Hitchcock Presents. Only 15 minutes long. Take a gander, why dontcha?

I only wrote one other song aside from my FAWM babies in 2014, and it's this little guy:

I released my debut EP Spring, 2013. You can listen to/purchase it here:

    Hi Marcela - wondering if you're still able to do vocals. I loved listening to your voice. Today I realized that my song "Bee Sting" would sound really great with your voice. Let me know and I can send you the file without my voice.

  • @jbxl3 Feb 26

    I no longer believe that you don't know what you're doing.

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 26

    Oops! Twice!!!

  • @fearlessflight2014  Feb 26

    Thanks for your encouraging feedback on 'Hidden Shallow', I really appreciate you taking the time, will have a listen to what you are up to while I'm here!

    The vocal harmonies sound beautiful! If the violins come too through this track is going to sound super pretty

  • @mattblick  Feb 24

    sent you something

  • @mattblick  Feb 19

    Hi Marcella - I think we discussed collaborating somewhere but I can't find it for the life of me - did we? Do you want to?

    Or alternatively

    Hey Marcella I had this really weird dream that we had decided to collab - do you wanna?

    If the answers no that's absolutely fine - to be honest I think I'm weirding myself out a little

    Love your music by the way!

  • @karlsburg25  Feb 17

    Hi Marcella
    I may not have time but if I manage to send you an MP3 of a song, might you be able to add vocals? I really am hoping to get this one written but struggling for time at the moment. Cheers

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 7

    Hi Marcela, I'm sending you my message via Soundcloud.
    Have a nice weekend.

  • @mattblick  Feb 6

    Hi there

  • @thetau  Feb 6

    Check your email

  • @bithprod  Feb 3

    Humbly asking..... would you like to do the vocals on my butterfly song? (I can change keys if you want to).

    And of course, if you fancy any of the lyrics that seem to be constantly falling out of my head and onto the screen... feel free to use them.

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 3

    Thank you Marcela, looking forward to collaborating with you.

  • @rj1 Feb 1

    Yes. Yes. Yes. Definitely up for a collab. Cant wait to hear some more of your music. Your soundcloud was awesome.

  • @musicsongwriter Jan 2015

    Hello Marcela, just saw your thread on forum. I'll be delighted and honoured to collaborate with you. Adding you to my watchlist and hope we'll collaborate soon. Your voice and playing are awesome!
    Warm greetings,

  • @kristian  Jan 2015

    I'm quite anxious to ask you for a collab since you Are so awesome... Shall we?

  • @spunky4455 Jan 2015

    Great to hear! If I kick out anything this month that needs female vox, I will look for you.

  • @gregthehero Jan 2015

    Hope to work with you on something this time round

  • @cts  Jan 2015

    You like Prince....that is all I need to know. I checked out your tunes on Soundcloud. All kinds of sonic goodness going on! Happy FAWMing!!

  • @donna  Jan 2015

  • @bstubbe4  Jan 2015

    Love what I've heard and would love to collab! The material I've got in mind for FAWM 2015 would really benefit from a vocal like yours. Please send your email/contact info! Thanks and good luck

  • @alex1220 Jan 2015

    Totally in love with your website, songs, and of course voice. Please send me your email address. Because I would love to hire you. You voice is just what my songs need. Thanks

    Or if you prefer, you can contact me by clicking on the little mailbox to the right of my profile pic.

  • @jbxl3 Jan 2015

    Let's do this! You've been one of my favorite FAWMers since I first heard you.

  • @thetau  Jan 2015

    Hey There. Welcome aboard, Love your sound


  • @glenncase Jan 2015

    Just checked out "Sunday Morning". Soulful vocal! I like it! Have a good FAWM 2015! Let me know if you want me to play bass on a song, or collaborate or whatever.

  • @danieljacob Jan 2015

    Shall we dance?

  • @wille  Jan 2015

    Let's indeed!

  • @donna  Jan 2015

    Great! I'll get back to you re the gospel song. Just waiting to hear from my collaborator. A folk song or two may be in the offing as well, though perhaps post-FAWM in the event you're inundated in February.

  • @donna  Jan 2015

    Hi @celaphane Welcome back, and thank you for the offer regarding your vocals. I have a gospel song from last year's FAWM that needs a vocal harmony on a couple of lines in each of the four sections. Perhaps I could get in touch with you about that?

  • @johnstaples  Jan 2015

    Hope you have a great FAWM 2015!

  • @alboe  Jan 2015

    Hey @celaphane,
    Hope you'll have a great FAWM this year.

  • @wille  Jan 2015

    I would definitely like to borrow your vocals for something at some stage Pretty please?
