She enjoys singing a wide range of music, from Pat Benatar to Patsy Cline covers, and she’s performed all kinds of music with various bands all over the United States and in China, Russia, Poland, Mexico, Bermuda and Puerto Rico.
Alm has been honored with multiple Minnesota Music Awards, including best female vocalist and artist of the year. She was inducted into the Mid-America Music Hall of Fame in 2007. She also has an Emmy Award for her work with the Music Workshop for Kids.
Her latest CD, “Me and the Wild Blue,” is a culmination of her career to date.

Alm teaches music theory and vocal techniques at the Institute of Production and Recording in downtown Minneapolis.
