Kellogg

Celeste Lynn Kellogg is a singer/songwriter and actress who started performing at the age of 6 in her church choir and it did not take long before she was certain of her life path.  Before she knew it, she was entering  into every music and talent show  she could find. A few years later she auditioned for and was successful  for a new tween Pop group,  RD7.  That year with Radio Disney was amazing for Celeste with RD7 opening  for Raven, The Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus,  the Cheetah Girls as well as  an hour long show with the Kelly Clarkson, Addicted To Love Tour.

 

When Radio Disney came to an end,  Celeste decided to start her  own group called 'No Limit'. The reason for the name?  Kellogg wanted to send a message, "That if you work hard, stay true to yourself, there is NO LIMIT to what you can do",   ending each show with that  very statement.  No  Limit   performed in front on thousands each year, including a show on the Aircraft Carrier USS Eisenhower. It was during Celeste's  time with No Limit that the group got the attention of Grammy nominee Dave Moody of Elevating Entertainment.  The meeting led to the movie "No Limit Kids: Much Ado About Middle School"  and to Celeste's love for acting. Starring opposite of Bill Cobbs, Lee Meriwhether and Blake Michael of the Disney Channel, the movie won 4 Dove Awards.  Now, not only was she  a singer, choreographer, dancer,  an actress, and a songwriter.    Coming off the set of "No Limit Kids", she  had so many emotions and  ended up writing  and expressing them in 19 songs.

The summer of 2008 Celeste was invited out to Hollywood to attend "School of Pop". It was there that she met music producer,  Andrew Lane. Andrew heard Celeste sing and knew that he wanted to work with her in Nashville.  Andrew Lane's credentials are strong, producing songs for High School Musical, Miley Cyrus Backstreet Boys, The Olympics just to name a few.   Since then, Celeste has recorded 4 EP's in Nashville.   While Celeste has been honored for acting opportunities her love has always remained in music, where she has opened for Scotty McCreery, Raelynn, Eric Paslay, Easton Corbin, Brett Eldridge, LeAnn Rimes, Jeffrey Steele, Canaan Smith and Cowboy Troy.

 

When  it came time to record, Drew said "Nashville". After all, it is where music is made and Country was Celeste's  true love.   2011 saw Celeste release her debut CD, Gibson Guitars Endorsed her first promo tour and Pop Star Magazine covered the tour along the way.  Kellogg was  only the 2nd Pop Country Artist to be featured in Pop Star Magazine, the first being Taylor Swift. I Heart Radio, said she was an artist to watch,  and Celeste did TV and radio appearances, filmed a TV Pilot, and her music video for her song 'The Look' was in rotation.

2012 would be a year that  Celeste remembers as a year of  life changes. While she continued to promote her music through performing and interviews, she also graduated from High School and  headlined her first tour, 'The Country Pop Rock Tour'.  The mission of the tour was to share music while taking a stance against bullying.  Kids and adults alike told them that they  helped them out, and  also they found out that they actually saved a life. When Celeste received that message she cried a happy cry, to know that you saved a life was a feeling Celeste won't ever forget.  The year ended with Kellogg recording her 2nd CD titled "Broken Record".  Kellogg wrote all the songs on the CD and again teamed up with Drew Lane to have him produce it recording  it at the House of Blues Studios in Nashville, TN and Encino, CA.

Throughout 2013 and 2014, Celeste continued to work on her music, through performing, interviews, radio, TV and another tour.  Kellogg's EP "Broken Record" was released in 2013.  From the industry people,  Kellogg has  been told she is  amazing with an amazing tone to her voice, a force to be reckoned with, a rising star, gorgeous, confident, infectious, genuine and that she has 'IT'.   Celeste was also  told she was too young, too pretty, a girl, needed more power in her voice, need to work on her  breathing, never will make it, ugly, too nasal, and that it's harder for girls than guys, the naysayers always get their jabs in.   Out of all of that what Celeste holds true is, "Regardless of what people say, listen to your inner self, it will lead you in the right direction and never use people to get there, let your God given talents do that for you."

In November of 2016 Celeste attended the Nashville Universe Awards held at the world famous Wildhorse Saloon. It was there that she performed, presented with Storme Warren of Siruis XM The Highway and took home the Rising Star of the Year Award. In May of 2018, she was crowned Nashville Universe's Female Vocalist of the Year in front of the Wildhorse Crowd and and television broadcast audiences.

 

Celeste's  EP titled, 'You & Me', charted on the iTunes Country Chart.   Kellogg debuted two of her songs from the EP, 'Country Swagger' and 'Someone To Call Me Baby' at 3rd and Lindsley in Nashville during the Live 4 Tay Benefit. Celeste was honored to share the stage with songwriters Wynn Varble, Dave Berg and Pat Alger and acknowledges that performing with such amazing songwriters, was one of the highlights of her career.    With the exception of a guitar lick in 'Country Swagger', Celeste wrote the entire EP.

 

Celeste released a music video for her single "Country Swagger" filmed on the battleship Wisconsin docked in Norfolk, VA.  Celeste says about the video,   "It's something I'm SO PROUD of.  It represents my values and exactly who I am."  Growing up in a small Virginia town it was important to her to represent the military. Following the success of the music video, the single went to Country radio and charted on the Music Row Country Airplay Charts.   

Celeste's latest EP,  'Keep It On Repeat',  is already showing great success. With the lead single, 'There's A Beach Somewhere',  charting in the TOP 40 on airplay charts and the video being featured on CMT. The single has also been featured on Spotify's Golf & Western, New Music Nashville and  Fresh Finds Country Playlist. It was also featured on CMT's Next Women in Country Music & The Round Up Playlist.

 

The new EP proves to be Celeste’s best work yet.  The EP was produced by Sal Oliveri (producer of Pink & Chris Stapleton’s song “Love Me Anyways”).  Playing guitar on two of the tracks is Danny Rader (Keith Urban’s touring guitar player) and playing fiddle on one track is Jenee Fleenor (Blake Shelton’s fiddle player and CMA Musician of the Year) who Celeste has worked with in the past. With the exception of two tracks that Celeste wrote by herself, the other 3 were co-written with CCMA songwriter of the year Aaron Goodvin.

Upon the release of “Keep It on Repeat”, the EP charted in multiple countries.  So far it has peaked at #48 in

the United States, #44 in the United Kingdom, #95 in Canada and #12 in Finland to name a few. 

Celeste Kellogg continues to be true to her talents, her beliefs  and her visions for her music.  For the likes of this multi-talented, hard working singer/songwriter, there truly is NO LIMITS.
