Known globally as " the voice" of the British funk band, The Brand New Heavies ~ N'Dea Davenport has also been considered a "chameleon of collaboration" who continues to challenge her legacy to create new networks and cutting-edge projects.

Celectrixx is an electronic musical duo formed in Tokyo, Japan in late 2009, consisting of Japanese producer, Katsuya Everywhere (electric/upright bass, programming) and Grammy- nominated vocalist/songwriter N'Dea Davenport (producer, drums/percussion, arranger). The group has showcased throughout Asia, South America, Mexico, the United States, and Europe.
Celectrixx's approach has been to strip back conventional patterns by re-presenting live and digital elements that grow organically with their audience. Their esthetic, has been considered… as another or "other" approach, while keeping a mindful eye on the evolution of music without total abandon of tradition.
Some of Celectrixx's highlights include appearances at the Nublu Jazz Festival-Sao Paulo Brazil, featured speaker (Davenport) and performers at TEDx San Miguel de Allende Mexico, The Cannes Film Festival, and The BMW Series 4 Launch, Kuala Lumpor, Malaysia. The duo continues to preform, write, produce, and create conceptual productions with electronic innovation. Looking forward…linking backward… together, they create their musical identity with passion and dedication.
Those most familiar with Japan and it's rich musical artistry, can align Katsuya Everywhere with hip-hop/electro artist SONPUB, WISE (Teriyaki Boys) and flugelhorn jazz vocalist Toku. Doing double duty as a nightlife/club impresario he, as well the Celectrixx collective, are both resident DJ's at many exclusive international party destinations.
