Stellar singer, Marcie Campbell has been entertaining audiences across the provinces with her ready wit and arsenal of repertoire.
After jazz studies at Toronto’s Humber College, vocalist Campbell returned to her native Winnipeg and quickly became the go-to-gal for local band leaders and high profile events. For years, Campbell has packed rooms in the Jazz Winnipeg Festival, Beat Niq Jazz and Social Club (Calgary), NAC 4th Stage (Ottawa)and had the opportunity to work along side legends John Hendricks, Jon Faddis, David “Fathead” Newman, Bill Watrous and Kenny “Boss man” Wayne. She’s opened for comedian Bob Newhart and been the feature artist with the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra. Other highlights include her sold out concerts both in Calgary and Winnipeg performing a tribute to – Nancy Wilson and in Ottawa performing alongside local favourites Karen Oxorn and Caroline Gibson in concerts featuring the music of Blossom Dearie (2010) and Peggy Lee (2011).
In 1997, Marcie Campbell released her debut recording “Set the Mood” establishing herself as impressive interpreter of song and capable composer. Fan favourites from that recording include Campbell’s take on the Pink Floyd classic – Money, standard Black Coffee and her own Lament for Billie. Marcie Campbell will take you on a ride through old, new and everywhere in between. While evoking memories of her influences Sarah Vaughn, Nancy Wilson and Carol King Campbell’s sound and style are all her own.
Marcie Campbell continues to set the mood.
