It's been a season of immense change for one of our favorites, Nicki Bluhm. Her marraige to Mother Hips founder Tim Bluhm fell apart, she picked up and left her home here in the Bay Area and moved to Nashville, leaving behind her beloved band the Gramblers, and basically started fresh with songs pulled from the heartache. "To Rise You Gotta Fall" is a literal definition of the new release. "It was cathartic for me to write this record", she says ,"it was neccessary for me to write it."
Recorded at the legendary Sam Phillips Studio in Memphis by producer Matt Ross-Spang, Nicki collaborated with songwriters like Steve Poltz and Ryan Adams to craft the best breakup album of 2018.
