Jann Arden

Jann Arden is a singer, songwriter, broadcaster, actor, author, podcaster, and social media star. The celebrated multi-platinum, award-winning artist catapulted onto the music scene in 1993 with her debut album, Time for Mercy, featuring the hit single "I Would Die for You". A year later, she had her international break-out hit with "Insensitive".

Arden stars as a fictionalized version of herself in the new CTV original comedy series JANN–a comedy with heart that bridges fame and family.She has also written four books, the most recent being the Canadian bestsellerFeeding My Mother: Comfort and Laughter in the Kitchen as My Mom Lives with Memory Loss.

Arden is much in demand as a public speaker, and a favourite frequent guest host on CTV's THE SOCIAL. Jann’s most recent recording – “These Are the Days” released in March of 2018 – is available now. Once again, Grammy Award-winning producer Bob Rock was behind the console of what could arguably be Arden’s most personal and poignant musical offering to date.

At the Banff Media Festival, we met with Netflix and took a ride up Sulphur Mountain on the gondola. That’s where we made the pitch.
