"I'm married to my double-albums b4 my 20s up"
I'm indie singer-songwriter Cerulean, born Laurence Philip Warner in 1995 in Eastleigh, a small town on England’s South Coast.
Growing up playing piano, I used to find inspiration walking to school in Eastleigh playing through noughties albums on my iPod Classic, and always dreamed of finding a voice for my songwriter's brain.
I got into recording thanks to my rapper alter-ego 'MC Beastly' - the chavvy teenager within still seeking attention.
Though I'm building an audience in the YouTube age, and release the occassional 'Double' (A & Beast side singles) or collab, I'm still devoted to the concept-album 💽, and am releasing 1, 2, 3 & 4 each summer of the 2020s ending in that number.
I'll turn a new leaf in 2025 when I turn 30.

My favourite thing in music is collaboration.
I want my solo music to be collaborative too, so I invite you to cover/sample/sync my songs freely non-commercially, to see what you can create with it!
