Waltzing on Waves
Waltzing on Waves is the solo act of Jen Bluhm, a Twin Cities-based genre-fluid artist who carries a special appreciation for the bittersweet places, the preciously awkward paces, and the borderline absurd spaces that music can identify and elevate in the hearts and minds of humans. She knows her voice well, accessing techniques and devices from many different styles of music. She is a veteran songwriter of 25 years, a film composer, and a multi-instrumentalist. In addition to writing and performing her own music, Jen is now available as a freelance vocalist for session work and events. A great passion of Jen's is Neurodiversity/Mental Health Advocacy, as she highly values the beauty and depth that humans who are wired differently contribute to our world. Waltzing On Waves is currently at Side Town Studios recording her self-titled debut album to be released this year.
Rebecca Hass is not your average Minnesotan pianist and composer - with an addiction to Brazilian rhythms and bringing joy to others through music, her compositions span a variety of topics, from samba grooves to crime-fighting manatees. She also supports other musicians and artists in their creative habits through wellness and mindset, and blogs about the creative process at rebeccahass.com. She regularly appears locally with Brazilian percussion group Batucada do Norte, and Modern Spark Trio, a piano trio with diverse repertoire, and co-hosts a regular networking night for women-identified musicians. Keep an eye out for her Kickstarter, launching May 29, for her upcoming album of original Brazilian arrangements and compositions!
Lynn O'Brien is an award-winning performing songwriter and improviser, as well as a board-certified music therapist. Her powerful voice, witty stage presence and original songs (folk, R&B) captivate audiences of all sizes. She thinks WaltzingonWaves has a heart and a voice of gold, and can't wait to share the evening.
