ABOUT JANN ARDEN:
An acclaimed singer, songwriter, actress, broadcaster, podcast host, and author, Jann Arden has taken the world by storm for almost three decades. Born and raised in Alberta, Arden catapulted onto the Canadian music scene in 1993 with her debut album, Time For Mercy, featuring the hit single, “I Would Die For You”. A year later, with the follow-up album Living Under June, she would have her career breakout hit “Insensitive,” which solidified her position in the music scene across Canada and beyond. With accolades that include nineteen top 10 singles, eight JUNO Awards and ten SOCAN Awards, Arden is a beloved Canadian musical artist and personality. In 2020, she was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame joining the ranks of Canadian music icons like Alanis Morissette, Bryan Adams, Barenaked Ladies, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Joni Mitchell, k.d. lang, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, RUSH, The Guess Who, The Tragically Hip, Sarah McLachlan, Shania Twain, and many more.
In January 2022, the multi-platinum award-winning singer-songwriter unveiled her 15th studio album, Descendant, which arrived as a 15-song collection representing the last 18 months of Arden’s life and headspace. A bold, beautiful, and empowering sound of Jann Arden, Descendant signifies a return to form for the multifaceted artist, reflecting on where she came from and where she is headed. On the record, Arden stated, “We all come from a long line of incredibly strong people. Women, in particular, my ancestors, I am in debt to. I don’t know how they survived being pioneers, constantly forging onward through impossible situations. It’s all very heartbreaking. These songs are about who I am and what I’m made of. A new beginning to an old story.” For the first time, fans will be able to hear Descendant live as she embarks on her most extensive tour in over eight years – 32 dates across North America.
