19 Jan New York Times Bestselling Author Jenna Blum on Her Dual Career as a Writer and Vocal Student
In the world of literature, Jenna Blum is a household name. The New York Times bestselling author of historical fiction novels such as “Those Who Save Us” and “The Lost Family,” Blum has captivated readers with her masterful storytelling and emotional depth. But what many may not know is that Blum is also an accomplished vocalist, and recently sat down with her voice teacher, Arabella, to discuss her journey as a student and an author.
When asked what brought her to voice lessons, Blum revealed that she’s just started taking lessons with Arabella and has wanted to do this for years. “I’m finally doing it because of research for my historical novel, whose heroine is a performer,” said Blum. This is not the first time Blum has used her craft as an author to delve into the world of music, as in her latest work “The Key of Love” the protagonist is a singer.
Blum’s passion for her vocal journey is evident, as she cites her favorite aspect of the process as “learning about the voice as an instrument and the tools like breathing and theory.” The benefits of her vocal training have also extended beyond just her singing, as Blum notes that “learning voice reminds me how much I love learning in general, and I love that there are tools I can use to make my voice stronger.”
But Blum’s career and interests extend far beyond just music making. As a successful author, Blum’s writing career has been as diverse as it is successful, including three novels, two of them historical, and one memoir.
Currently, Blum is focusing on building her range, breathing, style, and theory in her lessons with Arabella. As a student, Blum’s dedication to her craft and her willingness to continue learning and growing as a vocalist is a testament to the hard work and determination that has made her a bestselling author.
It’s always fascinating to see how successful people in one field apply the same work ethic and passion to other areas of their lives. With her vocal journey, Jenna Blum is once again proving to be a multi-talented individual and an inspiration to many.
