Chantal Kreviazuk will perform in concert Nov. 6 at Kelowna Community Theatre.

Chantal Kreviazuk will bring her Hard Sail Tour to Kelowna on Nov. 6 for a concert at Kelowna Community Theatre, 1375 Water St.

The tour is showcasing her new album, Hard Sail, her sixth studio release and first new album in six years.

Kreviazuk never considered a career in music until suffering a serious motorcycle crash in 1994.

During her recovery, the multiple Juno Award winner began writing what would become her platinum-selling debut album Under These Rocks and Stones (1997).

She has since become one of Canada’s most successful female vocalists, with a string of distinguished albums and singles, including God Made Me , Surrounded, Leaving On A Jet Plane, Feels Like Home,  Before You, Invincible,  All I Can Do  and In This Life.

Driven to expand her artistry, Kreviazuk has also branched out to write songs for others artists, among them Pink, Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwoodv and Drake.

Throughout her career, she  has been nominated for six Juno Awards, winning Best Female Artist (2000) and Best Pop/Adult Album (2000).

With all her success in music, Kreviazuk remains grounded to being a mom to her three sons with her  husband, Raine Maida, frontman for Our Lady Peace.

Chantal and Raine are dedicated supporters of War Child Canada, demonstrating an outstanding commitment to human rights causes. In recognition of this, they received the Allan Slaight Humanitarian Spirit Award in 2014. In addition, in December 2014 the Governor General jointly appointed Raine Maida and Chantal Kreviazuk to the Order of Canada.
