THE MOTHER HIPS SINGER-SONGWRITER
RELEASES NEW SOLO ALBUM, TOUR WITH JACKIE GREENE
The new studio album, House of Bluhm, by Tim Bluhm (The Mother Hips) and co-produced by Jackie Greene, was released April 1st on Bluhm's own Little Sur Recordings. The album features 11 new songs and was mostly recorded at Bluhm and Greene's Mission Bells Studio in San Francisco in the winter of 2007 and 2008. Musicians that play on the record include Jackie Greene, Mike Curry, John Hofer (Mother Hips), Nicki Bluhm and ALO's Steve Adams and Dan Lebowitz.
Bluhm hit the road a few days ago supporting Greene on his tour for his newly released solo album, Giving Up The Ghost (429 Records), also released April 1st. The new recording includes performances from Tim Bluhm, pedal steel great Greg Leisz, Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello) and Los Lobos' David Hidalgo and Steve Berlin.
If audiences are lucky perhaps the pair will do a few Skinny Singers numbers while on the road together. This Greene/Bluhm side project is super sweet, as we noted in our review last September.
