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.

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 and planning the next steps to producing her sophomore LP. New compositions ignited her involvement with the Plastic Acid Orchestra for their Halloween concert at Performance Works on Granville Island in Vancouver. She is currently writing new songs, performing around Vancouver (monthly at Kino Cafe and other special performances), as well as traveling to her hometown of Kamloops monthly to perform at the Plaza Heritage Hotel's Fireside Steakhouse.
