The Essential List: Cece Wyldeck
Music & Sound
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Creative development manager at MassiveMusic Amsterdam used to play in a dark folk band and makes hats in her spare time
Cece Wyldeck’s ear for music goes back to her days as a member of the St. Paul’s choir in 1996, belting out vocals at the National Opera in productions of Othello.  Eventually her passions led her to found dark-folk-rock band Wyldeck, for which she used to write and sing, play guitar and played UK festivals such as Wilderness and Secret Garden Party. 

In 2015, she became Paloma Faith’s artists manager and looked after her new management and publishing company (Liam Bailey, Viktoria Modesta, John Martin) before landing at MassiveMusic two years later as creative development manager.

Check out her Essential List for a deep dive into her well-refined tastes.
