"Idol trio of rhythmic words"

“Jenn Pidgeon has created a genre and utilized it with her unique flair. This recent recording artist is a breath of fresh air in the indie community, transforming one stage at a time with her classic writing style on songs like “Eyes Cream”, this no–bullshit, cut–to–the–chase savant will be hosting a show somewhere you ought to be.” ~C. Humphries, Echo Weekly, April 23, 2009.

Jenn Pidgeon is a poet, emcee, and rhythmic word artist from Waterloo, who has been described as a “subversive rhythmic walking lexicon”. Her joy is to assemble enthusiastic musicians and create a niche for the vocals, making the most of live, collaborative soundscapes. Jenn began picking up the mic in ’97, with any variety of gracious musicians who welcomed her words, and has shared stages with Scott Wicken, Adrian Jones, Cease Scuff Collective, Shannon Lyon, and Ace Kinkaid.
Jenn has been performing vocally for 12 years, from 2000-05 with the Hillside Festival of Guelph as the Spoken Word Programmer. Over time, her poetics have morphed into melodic pieces, to tell of life, in all its harsh and beautiful ways. In '05 Jenn was invited to speak as the in house poet, with Dale Marcell and the Fletcher Valve Drummers, soaking the in rhythm and mutual respect of the players. This is where listening on stage became more important than speaking, to get a word in, lead-wise. Every subtle, or not so subtle experience contributing to what these Rhythmic Words are becoming. Recently Jenn has been performing and hosting events with I.R.I.S. Indie Showcases and the Exhibit Café, and will be Emceeing the Sun Stage and performing with the Cease Scuff Collective at Hillside Festival 2009. Jenn has just released her first collection of vocal~lyrical~musical recordings, “Rhythmic Word”, produced by Jonny Riddim, of Kitchener-Waterloo based Riddim Productions.
