Celeigh Cardinal

Celeigh is quickly becoming one of the great Canadian voices that make up the fabric of the Canadian roots music scene.”

— Doug Cox, Vancouver Island Music Festival

Celeigh Cardinal is totally friggin’ metal. Her songwriting is both honest and sublime; it hits me in the head AND the heart. And just wait till she starts to sing. You’ll wake up in the middle of the night with a cold sweat, jonesing to hear that voice just one more time. Oh yeah, and she’s kind and hilarious to boot... Gross. ”

— David Landreth (The Bros. Landreth)


“I’ve always connected with artists whose voices resonate; you can feel it in your body.  That is what I’ve always wanted to be.”  

Celeigh Cardinal owns a stage, connecting deeply through humour and vulnerability. She has received many accolades including the 2020 JUNO Award for Indigenous Artist of the year, as well as awards and nominations from the CBC Music Awards, Western Canadian Music Awards and Edmonton Music Awards.  Celeigh has charted on the Indigenous Music Countdown, the CBC Music Top 20 Countdown and !earshot. She has two full-length albums completed and her third release slated for Spring 2024, which is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
