About the performer:

Jen Mulhern aka Jenuine Cello, South Padre Island, TX

Native Texan Jenuine Cello, aka Jen Mulhern, is a captivating model of a modern one-woman band who is constantly embracing her journey from symphony musician to solo performer and songwriter. After earning a degree in Music Performance from Texas State University, she started her odyssey into the world of contemporary music with an array of collaborations, performing live with bands and artists from the Austin music scene during the early 2000's. It was during these years that she began experimenting with instrumental songwriting using a looper.

In 2014, the solo project called 'Jenuine Cello' was born. The early shows at Cafe Creme in East Austin were a testament to the ideology that the audience should be allowed to eavesdrop on the creative process as each song is built from scratch. Mulhern dedicated her compositions to improvised form and content rather than rehearsed replication. Her live recordings and performances take listeners on a road trip free from genre, saturated with an array of influences. With undercurrents of Bach, Blondie, the Beatles, Bjork and everything in between, Mulhern's music combines classically-infused inspiration with raw textures to create a unique sound of layered soulful puzzle pieces. Equipped with a cello and a mic, a looping pedal, a 6-string electric cello and knack for glitchy self-made beats using cajon and beat-boxing, Jen Mulhern creates a symphony of spontaneous sound painting that tugs at the soul and awakens an ancient desire to howl at the moon...

After nearly 20 years in Austin/Central Texas as a freelance cellist and private cello instructor, Ms. Mulhern moved to South Padre Island in 2017 to pursue Jenuine Cello as a full time solo career. She is currently preparing for her upcoming LP release in 2023 and resides in both SPI, TX and Buffalo, NY.
