The Mother Hips
Blue Rose Music is proud to announce that The McCrary Sisters and The Mother Hips (Tim Bluhm & Greg Loiacono) have been added to the lineup for the 6th annual Blue Rose Benefit. Taking place on June 8th at San Francisco’s legendary venue, The Fillmore, the Blue Rose Benefit will once again raise money for the Blue Rose Foundation with 100% of ticket sales going towards funding pre-school scholarships for financially disadvantaged children in the Bay Area.
Today, Tim Bluhm releases his new full-length solo album Sorta Surviving via Blue Rose Music. Known as the frontman for praised rock outfit The Mother Hips, Sorta Surviving is a testament to Bluhm’s versatility as an artist and honed skill as a songwriter. Recorded while coping with a recent divorce and during recovery from a nearly-fatal paragliding crash, the album finds Bluhm at a unique place – grateful, appreciative for his life, and more determined than ever.
Singer-songwriter Tim Bluhm himself affirms below in this new interview with Grateful Web: “I never come up short when it comes to songs.” And It’d be really hard to discredit the man. The California-bred musician has been touring professionally for the better part of thirty years, many of those as the frontman for the legendary Mother Hips, but also during that time as a prolific individual artist, putting his unique mark on modern country.
Tim Bluhm is set to release his new full-length solo album, Sorta Surviving, on March 29, 2019. A gentle departure from his usual California-Soul sound of the Mother Hips, Sorta Surviving finds Bluhm living out his classic country musical dreams. Produced by Widespread Panic’s Dave Schools and anchored by all-star band members Jesse Aycock (guitar, vocals) and Jason Crosby (piano, violin, organ), and Nashville session legends Gene Chrisman (drums) and David Roe (bass), Bluhm’s new album was recorded at Cash Cabin Studios in He
Several Bay Area musicians who were already friends on and off the stage appeared together at The Fillmore in San Francisco on June 9 to spotlight Blue Rose Music’s stable of artists, and of more importance to raise money and awareness for the Blue Rose Foundation, which commits itself to preschool scholarships for impoverished children.
It’s been five years since beloved California-based rock band The Mother Hips released new music - and they certainly didn’t disappoint with latest single, “It’s Alright.”
The video for the song, released in late March, showcases the band’s notoriously close relationship with fans (who were encouraged to send clips of themselves for inclusion in the video) and offers a generous helping of adventure - something the band is known for.
Healed up and ready to propel their unique rock ‘n’ jamming “California Soul” sound into the future, The Mother Hips launched a two-night stand at Harlow’s in Sacramento in high fashion on December 29. With some new band personnel added to the mix, founding members Tim Bluhm, Greg Loiacono, and long-time drummer John Hofer fired on all cylinders over 20 songs to the appreciation of the enthusiastic 400-plus folks in the sold-out club, many of them self-professed loyal, long-time Mother Hips fans.
