JON & DEENA
INDIE / FOLK / POP
Jon Fried & Deena Shoshkes began performing in the streets in Paris and Rome in the early 80's. They started a rock band called The Cucumbers and found a home in the Indie Pop scene in Hoboken, NJ. After many years of playing music together in varied incarnations, their duo performances draw upon a deep songbook and effortless communication.
Their songwriting has been called "direct and artful," by the New York Times, Deena's voice "...incredible: kidstuff and wisdom merged," by the Village Voice. Their songs have been recorded by Jackson Browne, Dar Williams, Marshall Crenshaw and featured in films and on network TV.
