“Electrifying folk defined by a soulful croon, a lively musical background and a genuine spirit that is put on full display via a strong musical talent.”
“Celia stands out from other indie artists in a big way. He’s one of the best Indie songwriters I’ve ever heard in a long, long while.”
Greg Cettina – Skope Magazine
“Deeply textured and beautiful written music, layered in tone and color like autumn, and warming the heart with ambience.”

MUSIC CONNECTION LIVE REVIEW:
THE PHIL CELIA BAND AT ROOM 5 IN LOS ANGELES, CA
“Americana in it’s purest form, Phil Celia defines the genre by weaving his roots, country and folk influences into a sound both contemporary and timeless.”
Grant Stoner – Music Connection Magazine Live Review
“All eight songs on “The PCB Sessions” have a whimsical feel that makes the world seem right and an underlying sense of hope that your future looks brighter than your past.”
“As a whole the band plays like a well oiled machine…. The PCB Sessions is a rock solid release that upholds the classic Americana-folk standard.”
“… a wonderful almost acoustic unplugged setting and an earthy musical ambience straight from the heart”.
Richard English – Gashouse Radio
“Multi-talented singer-songwriter Phil Celia is plowing a row for himself as an independent artist in a field where having a unique and distinctive sound is becoming increasingly uncommon. A talented singer-songwriter his vocals blend naturally with the rich folk instrumentation and the songs are imbued with a classic feel reminiscent of a new yet older retro Folk-Rock sound.”
“All songs on The PCB Sessions are a glory-full return to folk rock singer sad core songwriter with a stuttering rhythm section underpinning some terrific work from all involved”.

“A collection of material you can’t help but fall in love with. The music is comparable to an old fade pair of Blue Jeans”.
“An impressive snapshot that not only touches all the motions, but delivers solid songwriting with a nice slow burning folk/rock feel ..”
“Inspiring in the sense that it will touch your soul, and give you a sense of hope that real good songwriting is not officially pronounced dead yet…. a statement as powerful as the artist himself.”

“The music itself is uplifting, thought provoking, interesting and heart felt possessing an Alternative Folk core breaking the traditional mold for singer-songwriter style of music.
“ … a unique style fusing Americana rhythms and sounds with short, impassioned stories – a life’s opus if you will…. a powerful combination that puts a guy like Celia on the map for 2016.”
