Set Yourself Free
Earning the 2020 Juno Award for Indigenous Artist of the Year, Edmonton-based Métis singer-songwriter Celeigh Cardinal says the honour is, “such a huge amount of validation all at once. Getting the award is pretty mind blowing — it’s something that I’ve actually always dreamed of.”
From her hometown of Grande Prairie to apartment life in Edmonton, Celeigh has been creating music for more than two decades and performing throughout the world. She brings her rich, powerful voice and confident energy to projects with CKUA Radio Network and CBC Edmonton’s Radio Arts column In Crowd, focusing on representation and amplification of indigenous peoples and voices.
