Celeigh Cardinal


To describe Celeigh Cardinal as simply a Métis singer/songwriter from the Peace Country of Alberta, is like saying the Grand Canyon is a nice place to visit. Her voice carries a rare blend of warmth, power, range and nuance that puts her in the company of world class vocalists such as Bonnie Raitt and Adele. Harkening back to earlier days of blues and the golden era of jazz, her heartfelt, biographically inspired, songs blend soul and emotion into her performances. Releasing her first full-length album Everything and Nothing at All in 2017, the breakout track, There Ain’t No Way, brought her serious attention from the Canadian music industry. The album earned Celeigh Indigenous Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards and a nomination for Best Pop Album at the CBC Indigenous Music Awards. Celeigh racked up eight nominations winning Female Artist of the Year and Indigenous Recording of the Year at the Edmonton Music Awards. She received a REVEAL Indigenous Arts Award from the Hnatyshyn Foundation in Winnipeg and participated in the (Re)Claim program at the Banff Centre for the Arts. Celeigh has performed across Canada, the United States, and internationally, including the Live at Heart Showcase in Orebro, Sweden. This spring, Celeigh is travelling throughout North America writing with some of the industry’s most respected writers and producers. She is the first Indigenous radio personality on Alberta’s own CKUA, and she’s the first Indigenous member of Edmonton’s Arts Column, the In Crowd. Celeigh resides in Edmonton, Alberta and performs with her trio and band. She is one “not to be missed “on the festival circuit in Western Canada, the summer of 2019.
