Huge THANK YOU to TD, and Coastal Jazz for this incredible opportunity!

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 remarkable quality throughout her sound.

In 2011 Eccleston released her debut Jazz EP, a collection of jazz recordings from 2003 to 2010. In 2013 she released a brand new Trio EP amid the final stages of recording her long awaited original LP. Titled So It Goes, the full length original album travels through her eclectic tastes in music with jazz running throughout every vein. It is now available for purchase here, on iTunes, Bandcamp and CD Baby, as well as at live performances.

Anita Eccleston embarked on her first tour to Eastern Canada in May 2014. In Summer Anita toured in BC while writing new compositions that ignited her involvement with the Plastic Acid Orchestra for their 2014 Halloween event at Performance Works on Granville Island in Vancouver. Last year Anita's Trio and The Plastic Acid Orchestra performed in the 30th Anniversary TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival.

Anita is currently writing new songs, and will be recording and releasing a new jazz album in June.
