Jann Arden rocks badlands
Canadian singer-songwriter Jann Arden brought her hits and wits to the Badlands Amphitheatre.
On Saturday night, August 10, Arden played to an appreciative and sold-out crowd. In her trademark form, she mixed new and old songs with stories, anecdotes, and warmth.
The Calgary artist rose to fame with her debut album Time for Mercy, with the single I Would Die for You. She followed it up with Living under June that produced some of her best-loved songs including Good Mother, Insensitive, and Could I Be Your Girl, which was the second song she performed to the audience.
Today she has had a resurgence with her frank memoirs, a podcast and her television show called Jann. Its second season was recently announced.
Opening for Arden was Luela Charles of Edmonton. She was nominated for the Juno for Adult Contemporary Album of the year, in 2018 and 2019. Interestingly in 2019, she was nominated along with Arden, as well as Michael Buble and Molly Johnson. She also won three awards this year at the Edmonton Music Awards.
The Badlands Amphitheater will be following up Arden’s performance on August 24 with Walk off the Earth.
Arden was in great form Saturday night performing for a sold-out audience at the Badlands Amphitheatre. Opening for Arden was Juno nominated Edmonton artist Luela Charles.
