Celebrated multi-platinum, award winning artist Jann Arden is coming to the North Okanagan this spring.

Her Almost Everything tour arrives at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre March 19 at 7:30 p.m.

“We are very excited to bring an artist of this calibre to an intimate theatre setting, right across the province of B.C.” said F.J. Hurtak, president of the Kootenay Concert Connection. “It will be one very special night for the entire audience because Jann Arden is a Canadian original and a brilliant multi-dimensional talent.”

The Calgary-born  singer-songwriter, broadcaster and author 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 her sophomore album, Living Under June, Arden had a career breakout hit with Insensitive, which solidified her position in the music world.

Arden has released 12 albums with 19 top 10 singles to her credit. 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 Arden’s finest work yet.

Recently, she released a much anticipated Christmas album, just in time for the holiday season.

In her career to date, Arden has received eight Juno awards, including Female Artist of the Year and Songwriter of the Year. She is also the recipient of 10 SOCAN awards, four Western Canada Music Awards, a Much Music Video Award, three Prairie Music Awards and an Alberta Recording Industry Association Award.

Arden 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, and 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.

In addition to being a singer/songwriter, Arden has written three books: If I Knew, Don’t You Think I’d Tell You; I’ll Tell You One Damn Thing, That’s All I Know, and her bestselling memoir, Falling Backwards

Arden is also a much in-demand speaker, peppering her words of wisdom with her signature humour.

In 2010, she took on broadcast duties as the host of Being Jann, an hour-long talk show on CBC Radio, and in 2011 she sat in the judge’s chair for Canada Sings on Global TV. She has also made several appearances on TV sitcoms  and talk shows including Corner Gas, Ellen, and The Rick Mercer Report.

Arden’s philanthropic work has included World Vision and she has performed at Live 8 and MAC Cosmetics Fashion Cares AIDS benefit.

Tickets for Arden’s concert in Vernon go on sale Friday, Nov. 13 at the Ticket Seller box office in the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. Call 250-549-7469 or order online at www.ticketseller.ca. All seats are priced at $82.50.
