Hailing from Alberta’s Peace Country, this Métis singer/songwriter has all the voice, musical chops and stories from the road that anyone could ever want.

Celeigh has been singing on stages since she was four years old. She started performing professionally at 19. “I grew up singing in church,” she says, “I always knew I wanted to be a singer.”

Her records include An EP (2011) and Everything and Nothing At All (2017.) The latter earned her the Indigenous Artist of the Year Award at the Western Canadian Music Awards, an Indigenous Music Award nomination for Best Pop Album and eight nominations for the Edmonton Music Awards, for which she won Female Artist of the Year and Indigenous Recording of the Year. She was also a nominee for the 2018 CBC Indigenous Music Awards for Best Pop Album. She has toured all over North America and into Europe promoting her album.

Celeigh’s inspirations include “Lionel Rault on CKUA, live Albertan music, Earwolf comedy podcasts, Rufus Wainwright, Fiona Apple, nature, heartbreak and love.”

On her shows, Celeigh shares true stories from her life on the road, along with music from all the people she’s met along the way.

“It’s playlists from a person who sees the need for more Indigenous representation in media and music,” says Celeigh. “Someone who wants to remove the tokenism of someone’s culture and just play damn good music.”
Celeigh’s hidden superpowers include her single-parenting abilities (she has a teenager,) and her skill in holding a note for a really long time.
