Jenn Nucum


Jenn Nucum (she/her/hers) is an emerging Filipinx 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.

She takes listeners on a reflective and evaluative journey of reconciling identity with reality.

Jenn’s songs encompass her experiences as a queer Filipina woman: assimilating to achieve validation, feeling alienated amongst her peers, and the anxieties of editing or censoring herself to blend in.

By confronting these personal struggles through music, she seeks to empower those who feel dismissed or invisible–to bravely take up space in society by first performing the inner work of self-compassion and self-acceptance.

In September 2020, Jenn was a participant in MusicOntario’s Canadian Songwriter Challenge, where she had the opportunity to write and produce demos of three original songs, under the mentorship of renowned JUNO and GRAMMY-nominated musicians Terra Lightfoot, Adrian X (Drake, The Weeknd), and Moe Berg (TransCanada Highwaymen, The Pursuit Of Happiness).
