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.
Marked by the Songwriters Hall of Fame as an artist to watch, Singer-Songwriter Annie Fitzgerald will release her second album You & Me & the Sun on June 1st, 2018. Produced by Danny O’Brien (The Farewell Circuit, Dem Yuut), the album finds Fitzgerald joining gifted musicians and shaping a textured pop sound mixed with the raw vitality of rock-and-roll. Since her first release In Good Time, Fitzgerald spent time a part of the NYC Indie scene, started a family, and welcomed a move back to her home state of MN and a newfound sense of space to create. You & Me & the Sun explores connection, vulnerability, love, and sparks in the span of time navigating the balance between motherhood & her life as a songwriter.
Annie Enneking is lover and a fighter. She writes songs about having a body at a particular place in time. She fronts and founded the searing, mischievous rock band Annie and the Bang Bang, and, as a more mellow, acoustic-based singer-songwriter, gets to the heart of the matter on albums like what i want now i will want later and Lyndale & 24th, where everything is spare and true and hurts just right.
