Edmonton native, Ann Vriend is heading back to Venue 505!
Her new EP, ‘Anybody’s Different’ is a storyteller’s album. with Ann’s unmistakable, catching and powerful voice backed with heavy grooves.

Holy wow! What a voice, what a performance. (Ann) had a commanding stage presence and a control of dynamics that actually made my jaw drop making me grin like an idiot. if you have not heard of her, get on that, because she was absolutely phenomenal! – The AU Review (Australia)

Her previous album ‘For The People In The Mean Time’ was nominated for Album of the Year at the Toronto Independent Music Awards, garnering 4/5 Stars in Beat Magazine (Australia), as well as 4/5 Stars in the Star Phoenix (Saskatoon, Canada). Ann showcased her songs at ‘Big Sound’, and was the top pick of the festival!

A vocal range from vulnerable delicacy to blasts of soulful power. – Halifax Chronicle

Ann is a powerful live performer and despite being an independent artist has sold a ‘gold record’ worth of albums at her shows.

A delightful stage presence, she has an engaging, down-to-earth manner, and the audience loved her. Do yourself a favour, go and see her. – Scenestr Magazine (Australia).
