EDITORS’ NOTES

Candour is Jann Arden’s stock in trade, whether she’s crooning heartbreak ballads or cracking jokes onstage. Even so, the emotional frankness on her third album is a revelation. Living Under June is a sweet-sounding but gently devastating exploration of vulnerability and grace. Arden sounds gutted as she puzzles over a callous lover’s behaviour on “Insensitive,” while her tribute to her parents, “Good Mother,” is heartrending in its sincerity. Combined with her direct vocals, that guilelessness makes for a powerful listen.

Pure Genious!

Jann Arden is by far the most under-rated Canadian artist! Her songs on Living Under June brilliantly capture a specific emotion but yet remain open for the listener's personal interpretation... the signature of a great artist!

Jann Rocks...

I think that Jann Arden is one of the best female vocalist that I have heard in my lifetime. Her music is pure and soulful. I love the song Good Mother, it makes me think about my life with my own parents. I saw her at a concert in Ottawa when she was the opening act for the Dixie Chicks and I loved her sense of humour.

Fan for Jann

It's not easy to come by natural talent lately these days, but Jann encapsules what a star should be! Honestly her sound is amazing and is easily recognizable! We need more artists like Jann so that we can get some good music finally!
