Jann Arden bringing Everything Almost to town
The much-celebrated multi-platinum, award winning artist Jann Arden will be performing at Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre on March 23 (2016).
Jann Arden is a Canadian born, singer songwriter, broadcaster and author who catapulted onto the Canadian music scene in 1993 with the release of her debut album ‘Time for Mercy,’ featuring the hit single, ‘I Would Die For You.’ A year later with ‘Living Under June,’ she would have her career breakout hit, ‘Insensitive,’ that would solidify her position in the music world.
Arden has released 12 albums with 19 top 10 singles to her credit. Her most recent recording, ‘Everything Almost’ was released in 2014. With Grammy Award winning producer Bob Rock behind the console, the 11-track disc is considered to be Jann’s finest work-progressive, yet retaining the magic that is distinctly Jann. Recently she just released a much-anticipated Christmas album, just in time for the holiday season.
In her career to date she has received eight Juno Awards, including Female Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year. She has also been the recipient of 10 SOCAN Awards, four Western Canada Music Awards, a Much Music Video Award, three Prairie Music Awards and an Alberta Recording Industry Association Award.
Arden is the proud recipient of a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame; she has been inducted into the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame, and has been given the Vantage Women of Originality Award. In 2012 she was awarded the Queens Diamond Jubilee medal and in 2013 was inducted into the Western Canadian Music Alliance Hall of Fame.
In addition to being a singer/songwriter, Arden is an author of note. She has written three books: If I Knew, Don’t You Think I’d Tell You One Damn Thing; That’s All I Know; and her best selling self-penned memoir, Falling Backwards. Arden is also a much in demand speaker, peppering her words of wisdom with her signature humour.
In 2010, Jann took on broadcast duties as the host of ‘Being Jann,’ an hour long talk show on CBC Radio, and in 2011 she sat in the judge’s chair for Canada Sings on Global TV. She has also made several appearances on television sitcoms including Corner Gas, Ellen, and CBC’s Rick Mercer Report.
Arden’s philanthropic work has included World Vision and she has performed in Live 8 and MAC Cosmetics Fashions Cares AIDS Benefits.
“We are very excited to bring an artist of this calibre to an intimate theatre setting, right across the province of B.C.,” said F.J. Hurtak, President of the Kootenay Concert Connection. “It will be one very special night for the entire audience because Jann Arden is a Canadian original and a brilliant multi-dimensional talent.”
Tickets for the Kootenay shows go on sale Oct. 29.
Jann Arden’s Everything Almost tour is a presentation of the Kootenay Concert Connection in association with the Key City Theatre.
