Tanis Rideout’s first appearance was in a
foreign story line (Unclear Origins, issue #8),
which took her through Tai Chi Ch’uan poetry
training around the globe. Never a master of
secret identity, she took refuge from the world
to master control of language and rhythm (see
The Lost Years, issue #4). During that time she
learned to wield words with ninja-like
precision. She emerged from seclusion to join
the Justice League of Poets (Northern Stories,
issues #63-on). Current plotlines leave our hero
seeking to balance her search for poetic justice
with daily existence (The Continuing Adventures
of Po’ It Girl).
What do hippie parents and too many Zeppelin
albums make? Snoovy — Toronto’s veteran grrl
rocker gives you the flower child experience in
a blend of her own jumpy rock hits and moody
ballads. Her sweet and sultry vocals and
heavy-handed acoustic rhythm guitar will make
you go groovy all over, baby. She’s the Montreal
Fringe Fest’s battle-of-the-bands winner, the
Toronto pride stage chick rocker, University of
Manitoba’s flute choir diva, and California’s
speed metal folkie. A true tour baby at heart,
Snoovy joins the Roadshow to spread more peace,
love, and rock and roll.
