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. A Celeigh Cardinal performance is a profound, soulful triumph of songs that blend roots, folk, rock and pop. Her voice at once evokes a gentleness and control which can turn to raucous, gut wrenching, twisted, turn-yourself-inside-out blues within a single phrase. She is a passionate performer who can draw an emotional response with her deliberate words and rich contralto voice. She is currently based in Edmonton, Alberta and continues to perform alongside her duo, trio as well as with her band. Cardinal has recently been named Indigenous Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards, a nomination for the CBC Indigenous Music Awards for Best Pop Album, and a whopping eight nominations for the Edmonton Music Awards, from which she received Female Artist of the year, and Indigenous Recording of the year.
