Bio in Brief

ANN MORTIFEE is a luminous, multi-faceted performing artist.

Ann Mortifee - Performer, Singer

Ann loves waking early in the morning as it inspires her songwriting and creative flow. This beautiful photo was taken at False Creek in Vancouver early on a late spring morning.

A singer with a remarkable four-octave range, Ms. Mortifee is a Member of the Order of Canada, the highest honour bestowed on civilians by the Government of Canada.

Her albums, concerts, musicals, scores (for ballet, opera, film and TV), and book, In Love with the Mystery, have generated numerous national and international distinctions and several awards. She is a compelling storyteller and keynote speaker at major conferences. Ann facilitates workshops on arts and consciousness, and has co-founded two foundations – one for social innovation and one for forestry conservation.

She resides in British Columbia and is the wife of the late jazz flutist and ‘father of new age music’, Paul Horn.
