Jann Arden - These are the Days Tour
Jann Arden, one of Canada's best loved musicians, returns to Cowichan for an evening of music and stories to celebrate her latest album release These are the Days.
A singer, songwriter, broadcaster, actor, author and social media star, this celebrated multi-platinum, award-winning artist catapulted onto the music scene in 1993 with her debut album, Time for Mercy, featuring the hit single I Would Die for You. A year later she had her international break-out hit Insensitive.
One of the most celebrated and renowned musicians in Canada, she boasts 19 Top-10 singles, released 12 albums to date and has received eight Juno Awards, including “Female Artist of the Year” and “Songwriter of the Year.” She has also been recognized with 10 SOCAN Awards; four Western Canadian Music Awards; a Much Music Video Award; three Prairie Music Awards; and an Alberta Recording Industry Association Award. She has also been honoured with a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, 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 Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal and the following year, she was inducted into the Western Canadian Music Alliance Hall of Fame.
But it doesn't end there. She is also a best-selling author having written four books; the most recent being the Canadian bestseller Feeding My Mother- Comfort and Laughter in the Kitchen as My Mom Lives with Memory Loss. She is also much in demand as a public speaker, and is a fan-favourite, frequent guest on CBC's Rick Mercer Report and a guest host on CTV's The Social.
Jann Arden’s wisdom and wit shine in everything she does. She can bring a concert full of people to tears through song, only to have them, moments later, rolling in the aisles from her off-the-cuff comedy. Her most recent album These Are the Days, released in March, was produced by multiple Grammy Award winning producer Bob Rock and is arguably Jann’s most personal and poignant offering to date.
