This has been an incredible year for soul/folk artist Celeigh Cardinal, walking away with this stock pile of awards:
– 2018 WCMA Indigenous Artist of The Year
– 2018 EMA Female Artist of the Year
– 2018 EMA Indigenous Recording Artist of The Year
…plus another 8 nominations, including the 2018 IMA Best Pop Album.
Celeigh Cardinal is a Prairie girl through and through. Her heartfelt, biographical songs are carried by a voice that harkens to the golden era of jazz and blues. This Métis singer/songwriter is easily one of the finest vocalists to hail from the Peace Country.
Cardinal has 17 years of performance experience under her belt and two commercial releases to her credit. Her contralto voice adds soul and emotion to her performances and her personality and storytelling skills prepare audiences for both happiness and reflection. Cardinal’s records include a five song EP, entitle An EP (2011), and a full-length album, entitled Everything and Nothing At All(2017).
Cardinal plans to release a new EP, entitled Stories from a Downtown Apartment, in February of 2019. This project will synthesize two years of touring experience along with a host of artistic skills built during Manitoba Music’s Indigenous Music Residency and the 100+ hours of local cabaret performances she’s logged in the past 12 months.
