Jennifer Noxon

Whether transporting us into the paintings of artist David Hockney or onto the page of a 62-year old who has just learned to read and write, into a corner coffee shop or the lives of Irish immigrant settlers, Jennifer introduces you to an eclectic array of characters similar to those you might come across while thumbing through your morning newspaper. The infectious melodies and rhythms, tinged with jazz, blues, old time and even hip-hop, are as eclectic as her subjects.

Jennifer’s song "Next in Line" won the Ontario Council of Folk Festival’s Songs from the Heart Competition in 1997. Since then she has captured audiences at festivals, coffee houses and house concerts in Ontario, Alberta and BC, she has toured with Lynn Miles and Ian Tamblyn and has shared stages with Dar Williams, Garnet Rogers, Stephen Fearing and Eliza Gilkyson. “Sweet” was the long-awaited follow-up recording to her acclaimed 1998 debut "Watch As You Walk." Both albums have received generous airplay on CBC radio and community stations across Canada. In 2004, Jennifer joined forces with performing songwriters Chris MacLean and Alise Marlane as "Frida’s Brow" - see www.myspace.com/fridasbrow. The trio released a self-titled album in 2006 which was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award. Jennifer Noxon is also an exhibiting painter - www.jennifernoxon.com.
