Jenn Nucum (she/her/hers) is an emerging Filipina-Canadian singer-songwriter based in Toronto.
Navigating life as a diasporic queer woman of colour, Jenn Nucum's music deconstructs the complex fabric of identity with dreamy and ambient Alt Rock melodies, honest lyrics, and emotive vocals. Her music takes listeners on a reflective and evaluative journey of reconciling identity with reality.
She does so by revealing a bit about her personal life as a queer Filipina woman; addressing the uncomfortable trials of assimilating in order to feel validated, alienation amongst her heterosexual peers, and the anxiety of editing or censoring herself to gain acceptance. Her music aims to empower anyone who has ever felt dismissed or devalued, and lets them know they are seen
– starting in Canada, where diversity is touted but conformity is expected.
