Jann Arden is a Canadian-born singer, songwriter, broadcaster and author. The much-celebrated multi-platinum, award-winning artist 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 break out hit, “Insensitive” that would solidify her position in the music world.
Arden has released 14 albums with 19 top ten singles. Her most recent record, These Are The Days was released in March of 2018. With Grammy Award-winning producer Bob Rock behind the console, the 11-track album is considered to be amongst Jann’s finest work: progressive, yet retaining the magic that is distinctly Jann. In her career to date, she has received 8 Juno Awards including Female Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year and she also hosted the Juno Awards ceremony in 1997 and 2016. Arden is also the recipient of 10 SOCAN Awards, four Western Canadian Music Awards, a Much Music Video Award, three Prairie Music Awards and an Alberta Recording Industry Association 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.
Never one to settle into one discipline, Jann has made appearances in television sitcoms (“Working Moms” – 2017, “Hell on Wheels” – 2014, “Ellen” – 1997, “Corner Gas” – 2005) and has made several guest appearances on the CBC’s “Rick Mercer Report”. In 2000, she took part in The Vagina Monologues when it toured Canada. She has also co-hosted CTV’s highly-rated The Social on many occasions and had her own TV Special on CTV this past April. Jann is also an accomplished author, having written five books. The most recent, Feeding My Mother, has topped the Canadian bestsellers list since its release in November 2017.
Arden’s philanthropic work has included World Vision, she performed in Live 8 and MAC Cosmetics Fashion Cares AIDS benefit. In recent years Jann has also supported Gilda’s Club in Toronto.
Whether she is captivating audiences with her heartfelt music, entertaining them with her quick wit or sharing her written word in a boldly honest voice, Jann Arden is a Canadian original – a brilliant multi-dimensional talent.
