"Fern Lindzon is an engaging pianist and singer who brings an unassuming authority, an inquiring spirit and a natural grace to contemporary jazz." - Mark Miller, jazz writer

JUNO Award nominee Fern Lindzon is a multi-faceted pianist/vocalist/composer with a technique that The WholeNote calls "intricate, yet commanding," and her latest CD Two Kites, "breathtakingly beautiful."

Fern's second CD, Two Kites (2011), with saxophonist Mike Murley, bassist George Koller and drummer Nick Fraser, 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. fernlindzon.com
