Upon hearing the unique and refreshing sound of Nicki Bluhm, it becomes

immediately clear why she is in the midst of a breakout year. Nicki has

filled a void in music with her brand of vintage-tinged rocking country

soul -- music that's like an enchanting friend you've known for a short

while but feels like you've known forever.

Nicki's story began at a New Year's Eve party when she sang an impromptu

blues song that caught the attention of musician/producer Tim Bluhm

(The Mother Hips). With Tim's encouragement Nicki began to write songs

and perform in public, and soon was earning fans of her own. They went

on to record Nicki's debut album, Toby's Song (2008), which appeared on

Jambase's top ten albums of the year. Nicki and Tim were married shortly

after and formed her band with childhood friend and guitar player,

Deren Ney. The band continued to grow with the addition of Steve Adams

on bass (ALO), Dave Mulligan on rhythm guitar and drummer Mike Curry.

Nicki has since shared the stage with Chris Robinson, Susan Tedeschi and

Derek Trucks, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Steve Kimock, Jackie Greene, Pegi

Young, Josh Ritter, and many others.

Her sophomore album,

Driftwood (2011), shows an impressive expansion of Nicki's natural

talent and is well into its second pressing. The sounds range from the

AM magic of Linda Ronstadt to the charming duets of Johnny and June Cash

to smokey Memphis soul. Since Driftwood's release, Nicki has become the

"It Girl" of the San Francisco music scene -- performing with her band,

"The Gramblers"; as a duo with her husband Tim; and as a guest artist

with an array of revered performers. Her warm, strong voice and striking

presence have undeniable appeal, confirmed by her sensational

performances and rousing reception from music lovers at every show.

Sounds like: Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Dusty Springfield
