New to the Miami Music Scene. August 2008. The European songwriter / composer-team Torben Riise and Ian Nilsen announced today the formation of Celeste Music and Entertainment, LLC, a music production and publishing house in Miami, and the release of its first single.
Ian Nilsen, musician and composer with a long music production career in London and Torben Riise, author and songwriter residing in Miami have teamed up to form a production company in Miami, Florida and bring their new style of mainstream music and musicals to the local and national market.
Celeste Music and Entertainment wants to bring back a radio-bound, mainstream style of songs with creative compositions that you find yourself humming and meaningful lyrics that dominated music in the 1970s and '80s. They will launch songs by Riise-Nilsen on their own label, CelesteSongs as well as collaborate with new and established international singers. To support this collaboration, Celeste Music and Entertainment will have a novel, internet-based audition system on their website.
Also, the team believes that time is right for a new type of musical that will be part theater and part rock concert. They are well underway with their first musical, Galileo, slated for premiere in Miami in 2009.
