The collection is a uniquely compelling production with American Roots, Latin, & European influences, laced with dulcet harmonies & eclectic textures; featuring WoW's distinctive & dynamic Jazz vocals that soar from musical eras passed while sounding fresh and relevant for today's listening audiences.
Dynamic Artist, Thoughtful Advocate
Waltzing on Waves is the solo act of Twin Cities-based Performing and Recording Artist/Neurodiversity Advocate, Jen Bluhm. Jen carries a special appreciation for the bittersweet places, the preciously awkward paces, and the esoteric spaces that music can identify & elevate in the hearts and minds of humans. She masters her voice well, accessing techniques and devices from many different styles of music from Opera to American Roots. She is a prolific songwriter and composer, a recipient of the American Composers Forum's 2018 Minnesota Emerging Composer Award (MECA - supported by Jerome Foundation), an Award-nominated film composer, freelance vocalist, and a gifted multi-instrumentalist.
Jen's connection with the Neurodiversity Movement began with the discovery and acceptance of her own neurodivergent mind and the minds & ways of her neurodivergent children. She celebrates and embraces daily the beauty and depth that Neurominorities contribute to our world while acknowledging the limitations and adversity the disabled, the disordered, and the "different" navigate every day.
