Jann Arden - Jann ArdenCanada’s queen of unvarnished emotion, Arden generally writes sad, weighty songs—in sharp contrast to her wry, offstage wit. While there’s still plenty of melancholy on her latest album, Arden and collaborator Russell Broom have mostly aimed for a lighter, more upbeat approach. “Where No One Knows Me” is an escapist road song, while “Rock This Girl” is a sexy invitation for lover to give her “everything I desire.” Bonus track: a stunning live duet with Sarah McLachlan on Arden’s “I Would Die for You.”
