about

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.

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, it 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.

Track Name: Through It All
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
Track Name: Just an Hour
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
Track Name: Flicker of My Eye
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
Track Name: Claim On You
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
Track Name: Red Shoes
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
Track Name: Scarlet Scribbles
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.
Track Name: Lovesick
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.
Track Name: Fumbling Forward
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
Track Name: Call Me Up
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…
Track Name: Island Lament
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
Track Name: 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

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
