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
