Classically-trained Ceyeo is a songwriter, vocalist and producer from Chicago. Ceyeo’s interest in theme-based albums sparked the creation of ‘Machine Learning’ in 2022, which is about moving forward in a world of alienation and inequality to anyone who doesn’t fit the norm. His second album ‘Baby I Care,’ released in 2023, was themed on caring, hope, optimism and positivity.  


For his third album, titled ‘Together They Were Nothing,’ Ceyeo focuses on the themes of anger, anxiety and despair due to unhealthy relationships, greed and the lack of unity in the world.


In making ‘Together They Were Nothing,’ Ceyeo took a unique approach to first compose 10 classical piano etudes, for inspiration, and then produced those classical pieces into indie rock by adding rock instrumentation, synth layers, and vocals.  The result is a clear evolution in Ceyeo’s writing and his most accessible album yet. 


The first single for Together They Were Nothing, titled ‘Confession’ releases on February 16, 2024, with the full album releasing in October.


another night in this prison

another day to be the madvillian

another hope to be the real queen

another way to fix this damn thing

and to see you for who you really are

got to learn to take the mundane with the bizarre

Another cause and it’s because of me

with no effect that I can clearly see

This life that I’m living in

I got regrets and my patience is thin

trying to do the right thing but it’s damn hard

for a person in a world that is so scarred

you’ve been tossed like a rag doll

in the lost and found where you are gonna fall

your getting hit by the bad guys

from all around

and there’s no allies

and I see it every day

yea, every day

there doesn’t seem any other way

how and why do we not get a redo

why it is safer to be anyone but you?

safer stuck inside a shell and keep sinking

we didn’t create this, what were you all thinking?

we’re in a constant threat of being expelled

much safer to live your life in this hell

than be free

why can’t we be free?

free to be who we want to be

not have to live life as a casualty

but instead, we gonna run away

or fall in line and live a lie

until there’s nothing left inside

until there’s nowhere left to hide

until there’s nowhere left to go

where they can’t find you

someone thought for a second

I’d fall in line but I’m too deafened

this sort of thing happens all the time

but being yourself ain’t committing no crimes

I see you above it all, yea

talking loud and standing tall

I hope you can

I hope you can

people gonna give advice

who don’t know their saying

can’t imagine a world that treats you so low

get real help, not praying

you can’t imagine what it’s like when they come for you

you don’t know what’s it’s like to be so subdued

and after everything is said and done

you know that people gonna do what’s best

to save their own damn skins

and they gonna say to hell with the rest

but that ain’t us, that’s not the way we play

it’s you and me together, and that’s the way it’s gonna stay

yea, that’s the way it’s gonna be

for you and me
