Nicki

Bluhm wasn’t always Nicki Bluhm.

It all began one New Year’s Eve party. Impressed with the

talents of Nicki’s performance when asked to play an impromptu

blues song, musician/producer Tim Bluhm (The Mother Hips) introduced

himself to the artist, encouraging her to dedicate herself to singing

and song writing. It wasn’t long before Nicki had begun cultivating

a fan base through live performance, one that craved an LP to take

home and listen to.

Nicki obliged, and sat down with Tim

to record what would become Toby’s Song, the artist’s debut LP released in 2008.

It wasn’t long before the two were married, and

Bluhm’s band was ready to come

together. The duo grew into a trio, as Nicki recruited Deren

Ney, a long time friend, to play guitar. Steve Adams (ALO) would

soon hop on board taking care of bass duties, and the group finally

felt complete with the additions of Dave Mulligan on rhythm guitar

and Mike Curry playing drums.

The full band headed back to the studio

in 2011 and released Driftwood, a natural extension of the foundation

Bluhm set on Toby’s Song.

A bit country, a bit folk, a bit rock, and a bit soul, Driftwood

carves a unique niche into the San Francisco music scene, the city

Nicki now calls home. A majority of the tracks on Driftwood have

the lo-fi feel of times past, an homage to the greats of rock and

country who blazed their paths on AM radio airways and jukeboxes.

While there’s still plenty of the Nicki fans fell in love with

on Toby’s Song to be found on Driftwood, Bluhm and her backing

band, The Gramblers, delve much deeper into the artist’s country

and blues roots on the album.

While on tour, to keep busy in the

van and provide fans additional content, the band created their

self- dubbed “Van Sessions” videos

by recording live van performances (while driving) during tours using

a simple iPhone. The series popularity spread organically on the

Internet and peaked when their honest, stripped down take of Hall&Oates’ “I

Can’t Go For That” went viral reaching almost 2 million

views on YouTube. The video turned on new fans around the country

(and other parts of the world) to the band’s original music,

spiking album and ticket sales to a new level. Subsequently, the

band moved into headlining shows around the country, selling out

clubs in multiple major markets, and leaving an indelible mark on

new fans and promoters with their energetic stage show.

Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers have

just released a digital single featuring two new tracks, “Little Too Late” and “Ravenous,” are

prepping a new LP, and are on an extensive US tour through April

2013.
