Arlene grew up near Ottawa, Ontario. She began playing guitar at age 4 and went on to become the Ottawa Valley’s Queen of Country Music. She has shared the stage with icons like Loretta Lynn, Kenny Rogers, Terri Clark and Lorrie Morgan.
Through the ups and downs of life, music has always been Arlene’s therapy. She loves to use her music to help other people find happiness, inspiration and hope.
Arlene’s music has been played in over 40 countries. In 2016, “Nowhere To Go But Up” was #1 on Music Road Radio for 12 weeks and earned her Top Artist from the Chris Top Program in Nashville. In 2017, “Life is Good” won Top Song at Nashville’s Country Music Week and Arlene was featured in the Canadian Women Songwriters’ Showcase in Nashville.
“Hearing stories about how people have found strength from my music is the best compliment I could ever receive. I have met so many amazing fans, artists, songwriters and industry people from around the world who continue to inspire me to be the best I can be. They believe in me when I may not believe in myself. Never, in a million years could I have ever imagined how far my music would take me!”
Her latest single, “Jackpot”, is a toe-tapping song about rolling the dice on love and striking it rich. It’s a song to blare on the radio and dance to in a honkytonk. You just might feel like you’ve hit the jackpot too!
