Jann Arden Information Continued
Arden spent most of the 1980s playing her music in bars and busking, struggling to get noticed. Her breakthrough came with her critically acclaimed 1992 debut album Time for Mercy. Her success grew with 1994's Living Under June, which featured her biggest hit, "Insensitive," one of her only songs played widely outside of Canada. Other albums have been 1997's Happy?, 2000's Blood Red Cherry, and 2003's Love Is the Only Soldier. She also released a greatest hits album Greatest Hurts in 2001, and a live album Live with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra in 2002.
In 2005, she released a new album titled simply Jann Arden. The album has been promoted as featuring more upbeat songs than her usual trademark ballads. Her concerts are usually sold out, and it is argued that they must be attended to know her at all.
Arden has received an impressive 19 Juno Award nominations. She has won 8 of them, including Songwriter of the Year in 1995 and 2002, and Female Artist of the Year in 1995 and 2001.
She is also known for her charity work in Africa and for AIDS relief. She also sang "O Canada" at the 2006 NBA All-Star Game. In March of 2006, it was announced that she would receive a star on Canada's Walk of Fame.
