Nicki Bluhm about to hit the road for upcoming album

Nicki Bluhm's new solo album, "To Rise You Gotta Fall," is due out June 1 via Compass Records. The video to the title track was directed by Grammy winning songwriter Scot Sax.


After six years with her Americana band the Gramblers and recent high-profile collaborations (Phil Lesh, Ryan Adams), Bluhm wrote the new songs over a two-year period, during which she got divorced and moved to Nashville.

The album is a chronicle of her state of mind following these deep and fundamental life changes. Bluhm's divorce, along with the need to challenge herself, inspired the West Coast native to make her spur-of- the moment, cross-country move to Tennessee in 2017.

"Nashville was inspiring because of all the songwriting going on here," Bluhm says. "When I would come to Nashville on writing trips it was just was intoxicating. So I very hastily, in a matter of days, decided to move. I just had this gut feeling."
