Astrella Celeste

Astrella Celeste, "the 60's
love child with a 21st century
spirit" and daughter of
Donovan (Mellow Yellow,
Catch the Wind,
Autobiography of Donovan:
Hurdy Gurdy Man
) chatted
with LeRue Press during her
visit to New York. She is
promoting her EP release of
Dream and The Way We Are. 
Following are excerpts from
that conversation:

LRP:  Are you enjoying your
         visit to the US?
AC: Yeah, the weather’s
       lovely today. 

LRP: Are you getting some
       time to “vacation” a
AC: Not really as much as
      I’d like. We might visit
      the Empire State Building.

LRP: Where will you will be
       performing in New York
       this week?
AC: On the 26th (June) I’ll be
      at the Cutting Room.
      I’ll also be doing a
      performance for the
      World Wildlife Fund,
      The Morning Show on
      ABC World News and Fox.

LRP: What would you say
        inspires you to write
        the lyrics for your
AC: I’m a lover of poetry. My
      father (Donovan) wrote poetry. I
      love Agatha Christie and
      the old classics.

LRP: Do you find it easier to
        perform the songs
        when you’ve written
        them too?
AC: A little bit in a funny way.
      It’s often easier…I know
      the words. But there are
      a couple of songs I love
      singing like Kiss (written
      by Hunter/Graham).

LRP: I understand you and
      Kevin Hunter wrote the
      songs on the Blue Star
      EP.  Is it easier to write
      alone or with someone
AC: It’s the first time I’ve
      ever written with anyone.
      My father never wrote
      with anyone. I grew up
      with that philosophy.
      Then I met Kevin Hunter…

LRP: In a collaborative effort,
       do you write together
       or separately and then
       combine your work?
AC: It starts off…I fiddle
      around on the piano.
      We get a melody then
      introduce a lyric. He
      (Kevin) comes up with
       bits then I come up with
       something. In the
       beginning, we work in
       the same location then
       after we get a start…
       with modern technology
       we add bits and pieces.

LRP: You’ve been singing
      most of your life; how
      long have you actually
      been writing the lyrics
      for your songs?
AC: The first song I wrote,
     I was with my Dad. Then
     after that, I was 16…
     mostly poetry.

LRP: And now you have a
     children’s book in the
AC: Yes, my sister (Oriole
     Nebula), myself and my
     niece (Coco Ryder). It’s
     called Coco’s Rainbow.

LRP: I believe I read your
    Dad had written some
    children’s books some
    years ago, correct?
AC: He had children’s albums.
     He may edit the book
    (Coco’s Rainbow).
     We’re thinking about a
     series… or doing them

LRP: How would you compare
     writing the children’s book
     to writing lyrics?
AC: In a way, with children’s
     books, it’s like lyrics, with
     a little of the rhyming and
     rhythm.  It’s good to be
     simple with a children’s
     book. Lyrics are
     sometimes a little more

LRP: How much time do you
     spend writing; whether
     it’s lyrics or your venture
     into books?
AC: All the time. I’m always
      doing something.

LRP: That may have
      answered my next
      question. Do you find it
      easier to write “on the
      run”…or do you prefer
      a particular place when
      you write?
AC: If I have a choice, then I
      do shut myself away. I
      usually write at night. I
      need my 9 hours of sleep
      though. I shut myself
      away in my little music,
      writing room, you know.

LRP: Do you have any advice
      for our writers that may
      want to write lyrics?
AC: Yeah, I suppose I would
      tell them I got myself a
      dictionary and a rhyming
      dictionary. You’ll find
      when you’re writing,
      using the dictionary gives
      you ideas. I found having
      it really helped.

Astrella was included in the

Fest Compilation  CD
