Welcome

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.

Anita Eccleston embarked on her first tour to Eastern Canada in May 2014. This past Summer Anita toured in BC while writing new compositions and planning the next steps to producing her sophomore LP. New compositions have ignited her involvement with the Plastic Acid Orchestra for their upcoming Halloween event at Performance Works on Granville Island in Vancouver. Tickets are available for reservation on Eventbrite.

Free Music for a limited time! 

I am giving away free tracks on my website from So It Goes and the Trio EP for the simple bargain of an email address.

It's my aim to use this shiny new website to stay directly in touch with you, my fans, friends and supporters, instead of relying on unstable and limiting social media platforms, very especially Facebook (see Ari's Take on the subject, and these two well put together videos: The Problem With Facebook and Facebook Fraud).

An email address is the best way for me to stay in touch with the real, and very special people who connect with my music and believe in my musical dream. I have been focusing on making sure that my website is your NUMBER ONE choice for where to find up-to-date information, and have a direct link with me.

If you arrived here today because of my email to all of my list subscribers, WELCOME! This means that you are already a part of my Jazz Dream Team. Don't forget to collect your free download from the link provided in the email! Contact me at anitaecclestonjazz@gmail.com if you have any difficulties downloading it. If possible, please pass on the download link (CC me please) and a recommendation to any of your friends that you feel would also like my music, and I will send you another track for FREE! We can get the word out about my music by working together to get these songs into the ears of great listeners.
