Cecilia Ferneborg is a singer and songwriter from the rural town of Vansbro, Sweden. Born to an American mother and Swedish father, her early childhood was spent immersed in traditional music from both countries. Ms. Ferneborg's interest in music continued and she relocated to the United States in her late teens. While studying jazz voice at Temple University, she set roots in the thriving music community of Philadelphia where she started writing music that reflected her inner and outer life's journeys. A remarkable vocalist with a creative passion, Ms. Ferneborg seamlessly blends jazz, pop, and folk into compositions of “lyrical velvet” (AXS). Her electric stage presence and deep musicality has captured audiences at festivals, clubs, and concert halls across the Northeastern and Southern United States.
