Jann Arden Anne Richards grew up in Springbank, Alberta. She grew up experiencing a turbulent relationship with her family. In a way, her love for music became a form of escape. She began composing songs at 13, heavily inspired by artists like John Denver and Karen Carpenter. When she graduated from high school, she moved out of their household and went to Vancouver. She joined multiple bands and worked in many venues like bars and resorts. During this time, she mostly did covers of songs from Led Zeppelin and Tina Turner. She was also doing her best to pursue a solo career but was hindered by her alcoholism. At 17, she released "Never Love a Sailor," but it never took off. She never stepped back into the studio for a decade after that.
Defying the odds, Jann tried again during the 90s. She released her first "Time for Mercy" album in 1993. The stars finally aligned for her during this time. The album spawned top-charting songs. Among the most notable is her top 10 single, "Will You Remember Me," which brought her the coveted Juno Award for Best New Solo Artist. When she released her sophomore album "Living Under June" in 1994, the then-rising artist's spot among the stars was secured. Her song "Insensitive" from the album became the most successful song released in her career. Overall, she released 13 albums. Most of them reached outstanding success.
In celebration of a great artist, "Jann Arden: My Story" will be showcased at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium on Tuesday, June 20. Jann will tell her story to inspire. Get tickets now!
