 Watch for LeRue Press' Interview with Astrella Celeste Coming Soon!


“The ‘60s Love Child with the 21st Century Spirit” Takes
 Euro-buzz Global with June 4 digital release
of U.K. hit single, “Dream.”

 Donovan’s middle daughter kicks off U.S. visit in New York City as pair
 of major televised performances set for broadcast

 SAVE THE DATE: New York City Press Opportunities to Begin Monday, June 25


 “A powerful statement of intent from the girl, something that will and
  has put her on the map the world over.” – The Talk Magazine


  MALLORCA, Spain - As her Euro-buzz crests with a high profile performance slot
  at the prestigious 2007 Isle of Wight Festival and a surge of oversees
  radio airplay, pop-jazz chanteuse ASTRELLA CELESTE is heading to New York
  City to kick off the June 4, 2007 digital release of her U.K. hit single, “Dream”
and promote her guest appearance with her father on his upcoming PBS
  television special. The Donovan Concert: Live in L.A, will start airing nationally
  the same week “Dream” goes on cyber-sale and will be featured on the iTunes
  home page. (Check local listings for airdates and times.)

 Born to rock royalty as the middle daughter of Donovan and embraced
 throughout Europe as “The ‘60s Love Child with the 21st Century Spirit,” Astrella
 is scheduled to arrive June 25 in New York City
for several days of industry
 meetings and media activity while re-acquainting herself with the country where
 she spent much of her unusually blessed childhood and a portion of her adult life. 

I was born in America and have lived here half my life,” says Astrella. “It feels like
 home. I can’t wait to come back.” 

 “Dream” is currently in radio rotation throughout the United Kingdom and is
  spreading throughout Europe, gaining steady spins in France, Spain, Italy and
 Germany amid significant European press coverage in the Sunday Times
 Magazine, Hello
and the Daily Mail, among others. In the U.S., Astrella was seen
 last month performing a duet rendition of “Dream” with her father when the PBS
 special first aired exclusively on Long Island’s WLIW-TV in a concert benefiting the
 David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace.
 The Donovan Concert: Live in L.A. was taped in January at Hollywood’s esteemed
 Kodak Theater (home of the Oscars).

 Also in support of her single release, Astrella will be seen singing “Dream” by a
 global TV audience, as her Isle of Wight main stage performance – along with
 those of the Rolling Stones and many other legends – is being recorded for
 worldwide telecast (and airing live on BBC4). Astrella makes her Isle of Wight
 Festival debut on June, the weekend immediately following the digital release of

 “Dream” is a driving fusion of jazz, pop and country showcasing Astrella as a
 songwriter who creates exceptionally personal, soulful and sensitive music with a
 sweet, almost innocent quality. She alternately recalls such icons as Liz Phair,
 Shania Twain and Natalie Merchant while capturing the lyrical and relaxing spirit of
 Donovan’s psychedelic folk-rock classics.

 “Dream” is the first track from Astrella’s upcoming 6-song EP Blue Star, due in
 the fall. (Its title is the Spanish translation of Astrella-Celeste.)
"Dream" was written
 by Kevin Hunter (of Sheryl Crow’s Tuesday Night Music Club), Astrella’s writing
 partner on the rest of Blue Star.
It’s produced by Yoad Nevo (Sugababes,
 Goldfrapp) with string arrangements by the legendary John Cameron (Les
, Jose Carreras). Astrella’s core band is Rat Scabies on drums, Andy
 Hobson (Pretenders) on bass and Carmen Squire (daughter of Yes keyboardist
 Chris Squire) sharing backing vocals with Astrella.

 As beautiful as she is talented, Astrella's career has been richly developed through
 collaborations in the studio, on stage and in home jams with David Gilmour, Brian
 Setzer, Graham Nash and the Happy Mondays, to name but a few. Astrella’s
 easygoing style is a reflection of the charmed life she’s led since childhood. She
 released her first single in Italy at age 8, which led to the Pope asking to meet her,
 and spent her youth in acting schools and dance troupes before working with her
 father providing backing vocals and touring with him.

 "My dad will always be my biggest influence,” says Astrella, “but I also love Chet
 Baker, Nina Simone, Sade, Tori Amos, The Cardigans ... I could go on and on."
