After nearly a decade spent with the Gramblers, and recent high-profile collaborations (Phil Lesh,

Infamous String Dusters, Ryan Adams), and a split from her husband and musical mentor, vocalist

and songwriter Nicki Bluhm is stepping out on her own with her new album, TO RISE YOU GOTTA


The songs were written over a two-year period in Bluhm’s life and chronicle her fundamental life

changes, which found the West Coast native living in Nashville, TN. “These songs are the

conversations I never got to have, the words I never had the chance to say, and the catharsis I

wouldn’t have survived without,” she says.

Recorded in Memphis, TN at legendary Sam Phillips Recording, Bluhm brought in producer Matt

Ross-Spang (Margo Price, Jason Isbell), for these live band, analog sessions. The studio band includes

Will Sexton (guitar), Ross-Spang (guitars), Ken Coomer (drums and percussion), Al Gamble

(Hammond B3), Rick Steff (piano), Dave Smith (bass), with Sam Shoup (string arrangements) and

various special guests.


TO RISE YOU GOTTA FALL tells the story of a woman searching for light among darkness and reveals

her emergence as a powerful songwriter and vocalist of great depth and immediacy.
