From the urgent, heart-pounding opening chords of her new single Into Me, to the first time that famous voice surges like a king tide hitting a breakwater, the message is clear: Kreviazuk is back. After seven years, three kids and collaborations with superstars like Drake, Pitbull, Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood, Kendrick Lamar and Pink, the Canadian singer-songwriter’s latest just-for-herself album, Hard Sail, is a moment in time. Kreviazuk has lived a lifetime in the past seven years and the collection of songs acknowledges that.

“What is awesome about this is it’s an opportunity to take a picture of where I am,” Kreviazuk said. “If you get out of bed and put one foot forward, you’re changing. Every day, I’m someone new.”

She hunkered with husband and Our Lady Peace frontman, Raine Maida, in Los Angeles to have three boys – Rowan, Lucca and Salvador. She’s acted in films. She’s dedicated herself to War Child and several other charities. She started painting, appeared on Saturday Night Live, and in 2014, with Maida, was made a member of the Order of Canada.

“I feel like this is one of our most outstanding show offering’s ever,” Lake Country’s cultural development coordinator Ryan Donn said. “Chantal Kreviazuk’s musical talents are one of her greatest gifts. She is a devoted wife and mother and has a big heart for the important things – family and philanthropy. She is an advocate for mental health in Canada and a voice for people who don’t have one. Bringing a performer of her calibre to Lake Country to share her talent with an intimate audience of 50 people is a big scoop for the Okanagan.”

The two Oct. 23 shows are at 6:30 and 8:45 p.m. Each show will be 70 minutes long with no intermission.

As with other shows during the Covid-19 pandemic, the seating layout at Creekside Theatre will adhere to physical-distancing protocols with tickets sold only in pairs or groups of four. Hand sanitation supplies will be readily available at the theatre and contact information will be collected from ticket buyers to accommodate the potential need for contact tracing through the Interior Health Authority.

Tickets were $65 plus fees and charges, through www.creeksidetheatre.com.
