Rock.It Boy Entertainment is about to proudly present one of the most iconic Canadians in the History of Singing and Songwriting. With 3 shows at 3 venues starting on the 12th of March in the Greater Vancouver Area. To get ready for these music filled evenings, I thought I’d give you a little history on the legend herself with bits of her past, what she is up to these days and her plans for the future. Be sure to check out the information on her shows coming this week and get your tickets today!
Jann was born on March 27, 1962 as Jann Arden Anne Richards in Calgary, Alberta and later became with middle child of two brothers, Pat and Duray. The family later moved to Springbank, Alberta where she and her siblings attended a High School with the same name.
Calgary Manager Neil MacGonigill, began working with her from 1985 to 1998 during her earlier albums. The two parted ways soon after.
The following is from Jann Arden’s Bio on her website which shares her past and current musical endeavours .
“Arden has released 12 albums with 19 top ten singles. 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 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 in 1997 she hosted the Awards ceremony. Arden is also the recipient of 10 SOCAN Awards, 4 Western Canadian Music Awards, a Much Music Video Award, 3 Prairie Music Awards and an Alberta Recording Industry Association Award.
Jann 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, 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.”
Currently Jann is in Vancouver performing 3 shows presented by Rock.It Boy Entertainment
