Celeste got her start when she was signed as a teenager to Def Jam/Murder Inc. During her time with The INC., she earned a platinum record with Ja Rule and collaborated with other hip hop artists including Nas, Raekwon and Foxy Brown. She gained experience on the small screen as a semi-finalist on American Idol and finalist on Making the Band III.

She release her debut single, "My Kinda Crazy" in Q4 of 2014. Perez Hilton says, "Celeste Stoney reminds us of Pink" and that her single, My Kinda Crazy, "could be the 2015 All About That Bass." CNN says, "Thank you! There is a female who brings 'true music' back."
