The Mother Hips

Today, Greg Loiacono and Jamie Drake share their duet "Bound To Fall" (listen/share) across all streaming platforms via Blue Rose. Inspired by classic heartbreak songs of a bygone era, the evocative single calls to mind venerable 1950s pop artists like Del Shannon, Ricky Nelson and Patti Page, while offering a handful of lyrical twists that clearly establish it as something modern.

Legendary Northern California-based rock 'n' roll outfit, The Mother Hips, are celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2021. In recognition of this career milestone, the band's record label Blue Rose is reissuing each of their ten studios albums on vinyl. The series will work its way chronologically through The Mother Hips' discography with one LP released each month, while all proceeds from sales will benefit The Blue Rose Foundation, which provides grants for preschool scholarships to financially disadvantaged children.

Today, Mother Hips frontman, Tim Bluhm releases a new single "The Only Solution," recorded in Northern California with producer  Dave Schools  (Widespread Panic's founding member/bassist). Earlier this year, Tim released a Top 50 Americana album entitled  Sorta Surviving where he embraces a second chance and a new appreciation for life after a dangerous speed flying (a more intense version of paragliding) accident.

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.

Longtime Mother Hips guitar slinger, vocalist, and songwriter Greg Loiacono, in partnership with Blue Rose Music, is excited to announce the release of his new single, “Close Your Eyes (We’ll Be There Soon)”—the second in a series of releases for 2019.

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.
