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.
STRICTLY EMBARGOED UNTIL: FRIDAY, 7 TH DECEMBER AT 10AM
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.
