Loved Wild LostNicki Bluhm and The Gramblers' much-anticipated sophomore album is titled Loved Wild Lost. The band teamed with producer Brian Deck (Iron & Wine, Modest Mouse, Josh Ritter) on Loved Wild Lost and it's their first time working with an outside collaborator. The result is their most compelling collection of songs to date. The richly layered sound forms the ideal foundation for Bluhm's soaring vocals and increasingly powerful songcraft. Further color comes from San Francisco's Magik*Magik Orchestra (Death Cab for Cutie, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The Walkmen), whose complex arrangements serve to amplify the indelibly universal themes of Loved Wild Lost.
"Loved Wild Lost is a sincere and sophisticated collection of songs steeped in tradition, but of its own time," says Nicki Bluhm. "After three solid years of playing as a band across the country, we have had time to learn, reflect and grow. This album displays a departure into the deeper and more contemplative themes of people in transition and the struggle to retain the energy and optimism of youth as life becomes more complex."
"The longer something moves away from its inception point, the more it takes on a life and a narrative of its own," adds Nicki's husband and the band's musical director, Tim Bluhm. "In these songs, I think you can clearly hear that happening; idealism and optimism losing control to the forces of inertia and a life of constant traveling. Happiness becomes an intention and love becomes a long-term study of oneself and of one another."1. Only Always

Nicki Bluhm And The GramblersNicki Bluhm and the Gramblers is a luminous, heartfelt patchwork of California folk-rock, brisk Americana and show-stopping soul, punctuated with fresh four-part harmonies, crisp rock guitar and Nicki's soaring, nuanced vocals that some critics say remind them of Linda Ronstadt.
Their self titled album is the first record from the full band - it is a family album, featuring 11 new songs penned by the band members. It was arranged and produced by Nicki's husband and the band's musical director, Tim Bluhm, and recorded at the Bluhm's Mission Bells studio in San

Brokedown In Bakersfield - Live!Brokedown in Bakersfield is a collective of acclaimed West Coast musicians joining forces in a spirited tribute to the Bakersfield sound: California
country music made raw and rocking, spiked with twang and sweetened with heartfelt harmonies.
The group features Lebo of ALO on pedal steel, Scott Law on Telecaster, singer Nicki Bluhm of Gramblers fame, Tim Bluhm of The Mother Hips on
vocals and acoustic guitar, and ALO rhythm section partners Steve Adams and Dave Brogan.
Drawing from the powerful songbooks of Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Gram Parsons and more, Brokedown in Bakersfield showcases the striking
songwriting and instrumentation of guitar-slinging country sounds that added oil to the Dust Bowl life of '60s-era Southern California - on the road, in the
truck, out the back, and at the honky tonk.
This LP release chronicles the band's live performances of Bakerfield classics.1. Workin' Man Blues
