Hillside Inside 2018
February 10 - 11
Jann Arden can bring a hall full of people to tears through song, only to have them, moments later, rolling in the aisles from her off-the-cuff comedy. Whether she’s performing her music, hosting an event, or telling her deeply personal and affecting stories, Arden’s wisdom and wit shine in everything she does.
Arden catapulted onto the Canadian music scene in 1993, with the release of her debut album, Time For Mercy. To date, she has released 13 albums, boasts 19 top-10 singles, 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. And the list goes on: she has been honoured with a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, and inducted into the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
Arden is the author of five books, including If I Knew, Don’t You Think I’d Tell You?; I’ll Tell You One Damn Thing and That’s All I Know; Falling Backwards; and her newest memoir, Feeding My Mother, a piercingly honest account of her experience with her mother, who is in the grip of Alzheimer’s.
