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. ...
