Cerulean is an independent performing-artist, born Laurence Warner in Eastleigh, a small town on England’s South Coast.
Cerulean has the recording-artist's taste for wrapping his baritone voice around his deft lyrics, and performing-artist's love for delivering them theatrically, which he takes one step further with sonic characters: most notably his rapper alter-ego MC Beastly - an exaggeration of the Smalltown England in which he was born & raised - and Dusty - the hero of his Musical “Snowflakes in SoCal!" - who, like Cerulean himself, dreams of Californian blue skies.
