Primary Instrument: Piano

Born: December 10    

JUNO Award nominee Fern Lindzon is a muti-faceted pianist/vocalist/composer with a technique Whole Note Magazine called “intricate, yet commanding”, and her latest CD Two Kites, “breathtakingly beautiful.” Montreal critic Irwin Block writes that Fern is a “rare and fascinating talent”, and the Los Angeles Jazz Scene’s Scott Yanow describes her as having “a warm and haunting voice along with excellent technique on the piano and an adverturous spirit.” Fern's highly original arrangements fly gracefully on the winds of contemporary jazz.

Fern’s second CD, Two Kites (2011), was nominated for a 2012 JUNO Award as Vocal Jazz Album of the Year. It has also drawn admiring comments from the New York pianist Fred Hersch and the British singer Norma Winstone, as well as from reviewers for The WholeNote, Los Angeles Jazz Scene and several other publications. Its launch was supported by a juried Special Projects award from Toronto Downtown Jazz. Fern’s first CD, Moments Like These (2008), was also critically well received and led to a feature article in The Globe and Mail and a concert recorded for broadcast in 2009 on CBC Radio’s Canada Live. Fern has been heard at leading jazz clubs in Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Vancouver and Victoria, at jazz festivals in Ontario. Fern will be releasing her third CD, Like a Circle in a Spiral on Thursday, May 8 at the Jazz Bistro in Toronto. ...
