Her lifelong partner is songwriter Simon Caby, who is also her co-composer.
Cécile Corbel was born in Pont-Croix on 28 March 1980. She first performed in pubs and the streets of Paris, and gave her first official concert at the pub, ‘Ti Jos’, in 2002.
In 2005, she released an EP with six tracks, ‘Harpe celtique et chants du monde’. After she signed with the record label Keltia Musique, her first studio album was released in 2006. ‘SongBook’ 1 contained Breton, Welsh, and Irish songs. After this release, she began to go on tour. In 2006, she went to Australia, where she performed at a French festival organized by the Alliance française of Adelaide. She opened Laurent Voulzy's concert at Olympia Hall in Paris, and also shared the stage with Altan, Lúnasa, Alan Stivell, Carlos Núñez Muñoz, Dan Ar Braz, Hélène Flaherty, Ousmane Touré, and Ariana Savall. She performed in many countries including Germany, Switzerland, Italy, England, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Poland, the Netherlands, the United States, Paraguay, and Burma. In 2008, ‘SongBook vol. 2’ was released, with the first 10 of the 12 songs composed by Corbel.
In 2009, she played the role of Anne of Brittany in the rock opera, ‘Anne de Bretagne’. Songwriter Alan Simon chose Cécile Corbel after having difficulty finding someone for the role. Also participating in the project were other musicians such as Tri Yann and Fairport Convention. The show was staged at the end of June 2009 at the Château des ducs de Bretagne in Nantes, and was preceded by an album in which over 200 musicians participated.
After promotion ended for ‘SongBook vol. 2’, Cécile still had some promo albums left, so she sent them to people she admired. She sent one to Studio Ghibli because she had been a fan of their films for years.

Less than ten days later, she received an email from Studio Ghibli about her CD.
