After nearly a decade spent with the Gramblers, and recent high-profile collaborations (Phil Lesh, Infamous StringDusters, Ryan Adams), and a split from her husband and musical mentor, vocalist and songwriter NickiBluhm is stepping out on her own with her new album, TO RISE YOU GOTTA FALL. The songs were written over a two-year period in Bluhm’s life and chronicle her fundamental life changes, which found the West Coast native living in Nashville, TN. “These songs are the conversations I never got to have, the words I never had the chance to say, and the catharsis I wouldn’t have survived without,” she says. Recorded in Memphis, TN at legendary Sam Phillips Recording, Bluhm brought in producer Matt Ross-Spang (Margo Price, Jason Isbell), for these live band, analog sessions. The studio band includes Will Sexton (guitar), Ross-Spang (guitars), Ken Coomer (drums and percussion), Al Gamble (Hammond B3), Rick Steff (piano), Dave Smith (bass), with Sam Shoup (string arrangements) and various special guests. TO RISE YOU GOTTA FALL tells the story of a woman searching for light among darkness and reveals her emergence as a powerful songwriter and vocalist of great depth and immediacy.
For a meat and potatoes opening to his bio, Gill Landry is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Louisiana. But he's also a photographer, a traveler, a painter, a storyteller, a mechanic, etc… It would take a novel to tell his tale. From hustling the streets of Paris to hitchhiking America on day labor and daydreams, he's slept beneath bridges with his brothers and in the beds of lordy estates. He began his music career busking on the streets of New Orleans, cutting his teeth through the ranks, interpreting life from the curb up. He released his first solo album "The Ballad of Lawless Soirez" in 2007 on the Nettwerk label and has been performing as a member of the band Old Crow Medicine Show since 2005. He's opened legitimately and as a stowaway for a number of tours for such act's as Mumford and Sons, Brandi Carlile, Ben Howard, The Felice Brothers, and many more.
His latest body of work, the self-titled album "Gill Landry", will be released by ATO Records in early March 2015. The album features a brilliantly diverse, yet cohesive, body of songs and a diverse cast of characters as well. From the haunting duet with Laura Marling in "Take This Body" to the Tex-Mex country guitar sounds of Robert Ellis in "Fennario", the songs are timeless, yet modern. His keen sense for lyricism is highlighted beautifully by the tonality and melody of the compositions.
