well I have to tell you in was in complete shock when I won Indigenous Artist of the Year!
Big thanks to Breakout West, APTN, and the Western Canadian Music Awards!!! AHHHHHH!
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.
This year Celeigh has received the Western Canadian Music Award for Indigenous Artist of the Year, a CBC Indigenous Music nomination for best pop album and has also received a whopping 8 Edmonton Music Awards nominations for her recently released album, “Everything and Nothing at all”, from which she was the recipient of Female Artist of the year and Indigenous Recording of the year. She has played many Canadian Festivals this summer and toured in Scandinavia the last two years. She is currently based out of Edmonton, Alberta and continues to perform alongside her duo, trio as well as with her band.
