Anita Eccleston is a Kamloops-born, Vancouver-based bandleader; a vocalist and trumpet player performing music that ranges from traditional jazz standards to funk, soul, motown, reggae, blues, pop and originals. Whether she is backed by a large ensemble or small, her sultry, sweet yet bold voice coupled with her lyrical trumpet style, creates a unique continuity within her sound.
Before her debut original album was completed, Eccleston released two EPs, Jazz EP (2011), a jazz collection and an intimate 3 track record laid down in studio ‘live to the floor’ called Trio EP (2013).
Anita is currently active in the Vancouver music scene hosting a monthly jazz series called “Like Smoke” at Seven Dining Lounge (formerly the Kozmik Zoo). To complete her original album, So It Goes (2014) Eccleston ran a successful online crowd funding campaign.
With the completion of So It Goes, Anita put on a spectacular CD Release Party at Vancouver FanClub on March 30th, 2014, featuring 23 of Vancouver’s finest musicians including a horn section, and the Black Dog String Quartet. She is currently planning her first tour to Eastern Canada in May 2014, with a local tour through Western Canada to follow.
