Album Notes
"Soul Unravelling" is the debut CD from Ann Vriend. A prolific writer and tremendous music fan, Ann has been putting words to music since her childhood days spent noodling on the piano in her parents' basement. "The Weather", "The Only Living Girl in New York", and the local hit, "Waterfront" will likely be popular requests for the rest of her life.

Meticulous and thought provoking, infectious and imaginative, Ann Vriend is serious about the craft of writing pop music. She approaches it with the flair of an artist and the love of a fan. Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon, Leonard Cohen, and Nikka Costa are a few of the major influences on this songwriter whose work seems much older than she.

Here is a test for you all. Play an Ann Vriend song for some friends. Note how often a new listener will start to sing along before the song is over. There is a timelessness to Ann's music that creates a familiarity. In a short time it seems as though you have known these songs for years.

Some remarkable mile stones have already been marked for an artist with such a fresh career: performances at prestigious venues such as the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, New York City's Bitter End, Fez and Arlene Grocery, demos recorded at Sony NY, command performances for major labels, and a first place winner of a songwriting contest, which took Ann to Nashville.

Great CD!!!!
I'm so glad I browsed the internet for the name 'Vriend' and found Ann's site. It's a great CD and it seems some of the lyrics have been written especially for me!


Ann is one of the greatest musicians to come out of Edmonton, Alberta. Soul Unravelling is a wonderful album that showcases Ann's amazing voice, delicate piano tinklings, and infectious melodies. Reverberation has to be my favorite track on the album! Ann is so pure and raw in her song writing - it really is different from a lot that is out there these day. She truly is an extremely talented Canadian musician whom everyone will be dying to hear more from in the future!


Great Work!
Although this type of music isn't always to my taste, I really enjoyed the CD. It's great to see Canadian talent making music like this. The solo and accompaniment pieces were excellent. Looking forward to the next album.


Excellent CD
this cd is simply amazing. it hasn't left my cd player since I received it in the mail.
