More Trumpet  Released 18 December 2016.
An exciting follow-up to her debut release 'Jazz EP' (2011), Anita Eccleston’s new jazz album 'More Trumpet' is an intimate collection of traditional standards showcasing her distinctive vocal stylings alongside a whole lot more trumpet! With her savvy collaborators, guitarist and occasional vocalist Andrew Smith, guest cellist Doug Gorkoff, and bassist Graham Clark, Anita’s arrangements reveal a mature subtlety of craft. Reminiscent at times of Diana Krall’s drumless Love Scenes album, More Trumpet is steeped in romance with upbeat songs like “Fly Me to The Moon”, “Time After Time”, and “All of Me” not to mention the nostalgic ballads “These Foolish Things” and “What a Wonderful World.” Her sophisticated vocal palette is exemplified in the eerily haunting “Angel Eyes,” while her playful lyricism on trumpet throughout the album acts as an extension of that voice. Guitarist Andrew Smith is the featured vocalist in an elegant rendition of “I’m Just a Lucky So and So.” Anita has said “Although I am often artistically drawn to many genres of music, my deepest love is for jazz and I feel the most at home within the sphere of the jazz world...I wanted to create an album that would allow me to sing and play from my heart.”

"This is a collection of traditional jazz standards that let her vocals shine and excellently showcases her lyrical trumpet playing. “More Trumpet” is an apt title for this album, as I think we get a little bit more of her heartfelt trumpet playing than on previous albums... this album does an excellent job of showcasing the great talent in her band:.. The addition of the cello on several tracks is unexpected, and also gloriously unique and a really nice added touch to the sound. Anita’s voice absolutely captivates throughout the album. She has a great joy and playfulness to her sound on the up-tempo tunes, fully delves into the emotional depths in the ballads, and throughout she has that signature sultry tone that I just can’t get enough of. The increase in trumpet playing is a very welcome aspect to this album as well. She has a wonderfully lyrical, expressive voice with her horn. This is a solid disk, with very enjoyable takes on timeless jazz standards. Great singing, great playing, and a really nice flow from one track to the next. If you like jazz, I think you will really enjoy this album." - December 15, 2016 "More Trumpet" Album Review (Ryan Noakes, Musetta Stone) Downloadable PDF

."Anita Eccleston's More Trumpet has plenty of voice...the album finds her working through classics from the jazz songbook." - December 13, 2016 More Trumpet showcases singer’s other instrument (Stuart Derdeyn, Vancouver Sun) Downloadable PDF

So It Goes  Released 30 March 2014.
The new album, So It Goes is her third official release being preceded by her Jazz EP (2011) and Trio EP (2013). Her first offering of original music, carefully crafted over the last 3 years in 3 studios with over 20 musicians, expresses her musical tastes and style, each track shining with distinctive brilliance. As the debut for Anita Eccleston's original song writing, this record represents a spiritual journey through universal truths about real human relationships as we experience the complexities of love. Be it the sweet optimism of new love in “Just an Hour,” the heartfelt pledge of loyalty in the ballad “Call Me Up,” or the sting of unrequited love in the bluesy “Claim On You,” the songs weave a story to which we can all relate. The whole LP exemplifies Anita's eclectic approach to style and arranging within her jazz vocal/trumpet sound expressing the spirit of each song in a unique way. The album closes with a simple farewell called “The Good Life,” a ukulele and cello duet conveying a sense of sorrow mingled with acceptance; so it goes. The official release date was March 30 with the CD launch party being held at FanClub in Vancouver. Prior to that, So It Goes was available for pre-release through Eccleston’s successful Pledge Music campaign online.

Original Lyrics

Through It All

Written By: Anita Eccleston

I just can’t find the right words to say I love you
I just can’t find the right song to say it’s true

Do you hear me I’m singing for you
Would it matter at all that we’re through?

Through it all I always loved you
Through it all I always cared
Knew that one day I would lose you
Knew that one day I’d be scared

I wish that I had just been there from the start
I wish that I had been first to give my heart

Do you feel me I’m dreaming of you
Does it matter at all that we’re through?

Through it all I always loved you
Through it all I always cared
Knew that one day I would lose you
Knew that one day I’d be scared

Through it all I always loved you
Through it all I always cared
Knew that one day I would lose you
Knew that one day I’d be scared

Just An Hour

Written By: Anita Eccleston

Even Just an Hour with you, It’s all that I need to see me through
Sad to say goodnight so soon, Know it’s alright, we’re in tune
Glad to see your face out there tonight, Glad to know that everything’s alright
Miss the times when we could have the day, To spend together in our own way

Every moment I share with you
Is like flying, without trying
And when life gives me the blues
You’ll come hear me, and be near me

I’ve noticed when you look my way, I run out of things I can say
But you always make my day, When you tell me that you can stay
Then sometimes you feel so far, Then closer when I play my guitar
Promise that I’ll always come home, I’ll miss you more than I’ve ever known

Every moment I share with you
Is like flying, without trying
And when life gives me the blues
You’ll come hear me, and be near me

Oh, I wonder if we’re meant to last
Can our love be so vast, stretching from the past
I reach out and touch your lips
With my fingertips, and now I know, I know

Even Just an Hour with you, It’s all that I need to see me through
Sad to say goodnight so soon, Know it’s alright, we’re in tune
Glad to see your face out there tonight, Glad to know that everything’s alright
Miss the times when we could have the day, To spend together in our own way

Every moment I share with you
Is like flying, without trying
And when life gives me the blues
You’ll come hear me, and be near me

Flicker of My Eye

Written By: Anita Eccleston

You can read me like a book
With the Flicker of My Eye
You understand my every look
And catch my every sigh
Can only be myself with you
And I cannot tell a lie
Cuz if I tried you’d see right through
And how could I deny

With the Flicker of My Eye
You catch my every sigh
I cannot tell a lie
How could I deny

The truth about our love is this,
You know me better that the rest
You fill my heart up with warm bliss,
Complete me more than I’d have guessed
How this insight into my soul
What gave you this power
To know my heart every part whole
More with every hour

With the Flicker of My Eye
You catch my every sigh
I cannot tell a lie
How could I deny

I love how you see right through me
I love that you are always right
I love that you’ve chosen to be
The one that keeps me up at night

I love how you see right through me
I love that you are always right
I love that you’ve chosen to be
The one that keeps me up at night

With the Flicker of My Eye
You catch my every sigh
I cannot tell a lie
How could I deny

With the Flicker of My Eye
You catch my every sigh
I cannot tell a lie
How could I deny

Claim On You

Written By: Anita Eccleston

I was lost from the moment I laid my eyes on you
I was lost from the moment I laid my eyes on you
You impressed me, then you undressed me
I was lost from the moment I laid my eyes on you

Who was I to ever think I had a Claim on You?
Who was I to ever think I had a Claim on You?
You know you lied, you hurt my pride
Who was I to ever think I had a Claim on You?

Thought I knew of all of the terrible things that you could do
Thought I knew of all of the terrible things that you could do
But my best friend, well that’s the end
Thought I knew of all of the terrible things that you could do

Went away ‘cause I never wanted to see your face again
Went away ‘cause I never wanted to see your face again
You’re a User, and a Loser
Went away ‘cause I never wanted to see your face again

My psyche’s scarred and it won’t let me forget the way you felt
My psyche’s scarred and it won’t let me forget the way you felt
You aren’t always mean, when you haunt my dreams
My psyche’s scarred and it won’t let me forget the way you felt

Who was I to ever think I had a Claim on You?
Who was I to ever think I had a Claim on You?
You know you lied, you hurt my pride
Who was I to ever think I had a Claim on You?

Thought I was awake but I wasn’t that’s why you came to me
Thought I was awake but I wasn’t that’s why you came to me
The anguish went once I caught your scent
Thought I was awake but I wasn’t that’s why you came to me

Life is good on the days when I never think of you
Life is good on the days when I never think of you
Sun’s still shining, better quit whining
Life is good on the days when I never think of you

Red Shoes

Written By: Anita Eccleston

Red Shoes, with a smile of seductive mystery
Will take his blues away
Dark eyes, with dimples that could melt her heart
Will take her blues away

But they be enemies to the highest of degrees
Each has met their match and neither one’ll catch
The other, or a partner, or a lover
They’ll be alone

One encounter with a dark man of power and intensity
Can make her lose her way
He’s a sucker for those shiny red heels,
They’re the rod that reels him
Until he’ll lose his way

But they be enemies to the highest of degrees
Each has met their match and neither one’ll catch
The other, or a partner, or a lover, They’ll be alone

Didn’t want no trouble, didn’t say no names,
Didn’t wanna play no games
But didn’t know their fate
The day they discovered their destinies
To be sworn enemies
Oh how they learned to hate

Cuz they be enemies to the highest of degrees
Each has met their match and neither one’ll catch
The other, or a partner, or a lover, They’ll be alone

Scarlet Scribbles

Written By: Anita Eccleston

Scarlet Scribbles on an overdrawn page,
Leave me to wrap myself in shame.
Rip these thoughts outta my head,
Take these dreams, he can have them instead.
Riotous ramblings from an overgrown boy,
Nothing matters now only his new toy.
Scarlet Scribbles on an overdrawn page,
Leave me to wrap myself in shame.

Let me remember how alone it all feels,
Let me forget the same.
Give me filthy credit on a piece of plastic sin,
Roll me in security that's only found within.
Draw a circle around the wasted passion of my soul,
And find me lying down to my boots, never take control.
Let me remember how alone it all feels,
Let me forget the same.

Scarlet Scribbles on an overdrawn page,
Leave me to wrap myself in shame.
Rip these thoughts outta my head,
Take these dreams, he can have them instead.
Riotous ramblings from an overgrown boy,
Nothing matters now only his new toy.
Scarlet Scribbles on an overdrawn page,
Leave me to wrap myself in shame.


Lovesick

Written By: Anita Eccleston

You threw a party for your girl last night
And she didn’t even bother to show.
You gave her all your love with all your might
And she left you feeling sad and low.

Can’t get hung up even though your heart breaks
On the one that got away.
Tear your pain out let go of regrets,
I guess she wasn’t meant to stay.

But you can’t let her go now, you love her still.
You never know just how Love Sick you are until…

You planned a special night by candlelight
And she didn’t even wanna come by.
The last thing that you wanted to do was fight
But she couldn’t look you in the eye.

What’s she up to? Can you even trust her?
Why play games that can’t be won?
Gather courage, all that you can muster,
Time to tell her that you’re done.

Such a betrayal hits too hard, too many lies.
She left you scarred and Love Sick, severed all ties.

Now she’s gone and I am right beside you,
But you never noticed me.
Let her go and open up your eyes
So that you can finally see.

Can’t get hung up even though your heart breaks
On the one that got away.
Let her go and open up your eyes
So that you can finally see.

Fumbling Forward

Written By: Anita Eccleston

My baby quit me on New Year’s Eve
Left me speechless without a reprieve, Oh, Yeah
He was my sickness he was my disease
Yet he meant everything to me, Oh, Yeah

Locked in a prison of my own design
Seeking meaning I could not define
Stumbling onward through another round
Fumbling Forward though my hands were bound, Oh, Yeah

There was only one way out
Was time to wake up, no time for a bout, Oh, Yeah
I’ll always love him, I won’t regret
He gave me something I’ll never forget

Midnight's kiss to say goodbye
Dancing and singing as the corks fly
Moments forever seared in my mind
Very thankful that he was so kind

Locked in a prison of my own design
Seeking meaning I could not define
Stumbling onward through another round
Fumbling Forward though my hands were bound, Oh, Yeah

Call Me Up

Written By: Anita Eccleston

Call Me Up when you are down, I’ll be there for you
Tell me that you’ll be around, The whole day through
I’ll be there when you’re not well, I’ll take care of you
Even when you go through hell, I’ll try to help you through

Pick me up when I’m on the ground, When I’m in pain
Stick up for me when they put me down,
I’ll pick you up when you’re on the ground, When you’re in pain
Stick up for you when they put you down…

You give me more than I could say, In such a short song
You make me happy every day, You make me so strong
I hope you love me the same way, To you I belong
You know I would never stray, I would be so wrong

There are days I feel alone, Though I’m with you
I feel that facing the unknown, Is more than I can do
But last night you held me near, It felt so true
You took all my reasons to fear, And I wanna thank you

Pick me up when I’m on the ground, When I’m in pain
Stick up for me when they put me down, Ohh…
I’ll pick you up when you’re on the ground, When you’re in pain
Stick up for you when they put you down…

Island Lament

Written By: Anita Eccleston

Ooooo, Oooooo
Oh, where do I go? Oh, what do I do?
To go on without you,
Oh where do I stay? Oh what do I say?
To get me through this day
Ooooo, to get me through this day
Oooooo

Woke up the next day
Still hurt the same way
Can’t go on without you
Those things that you said put thought in my head
And filled my heart with dread
Ooooo, you filled my heart with dread
Oooooo

How could we fail so fast, we just started?
Love so good has to last we can’t be parted
How could we scream and shout igniting a fight?
How could we ever doubt we need that night?

Ooooo, Oooooo
Oh, where do I go? Oh, what do I do?
To go on without you,
Oh where do I stay? Oh what do I say?
To get me through this day
Ooooo, to get me through this day
Oooooo

The Good Life

Written By: Anita Eccleston

I love you but I gotta go
I’m so sorry to tell you so, Oh oh
I love you and you love me
I wish that we were meant to be, Oh oh
If I told you you’d just ask why
I didn’t want that to be our goodbye

When I saw you like a golden sun
I knew for sure that you were the one
Knew how to help me with my strife
You made me want to live the Good Life

I had always intended to stay
Now I see it can’t be that way, Oh oh
Oh I hope you don’t hurt too much
Oh how I’m gonna miss you touch, Oh oh
If you asked me I’d have to lie
How could I tell you I had to die

When I saw you like a golden sun
I knew for sure that you were the one
Knew how to help me with my strife
You made me want to live the Good Life

I love you but I gotta go
I’m so sorry to tell you so, Oh oh
I love you and you love me
I wish that we were meant to be, Oh oh
If I told you you’d just ask why
I didn’t want that to be our goodbye
