Jason “Blackbird” Selman

A graduate of Concordia University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (specialization in Jazz Studies) Jason Selman has been performing on the local arts scene as both spoken word artist and musician for the last eight years. For the last two years Mr. Selman has also served as a facilitator for the Black Theatre Workshop’s Youth Works youth theatre program. When not being brought to the verge of tears by the excellent work of the Youth Works theatre troupe, Mr. Selman continues to fulfill himself both musically and poetically as part of the Kalmunity Vibe Collective (www.kalmunity.com). In October of 2003 he released his first solo self-published book of poetry, Psychological. He is currently working on the follow up to Psychological, a collection of jazz poems scheduled for an April 2005 release entitled The Freedom I Stole.
