Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers were founded in San Francisco in 2008 by Nicki, her husband Tim Bluhm (the Mother Hips), and childhood friend Deren Ney. They were soon joined by bassist Steve Adams (ALO), Dave Mulligan on rhythm guitar and drummer Mike Curry and released their debut album Toby's Song and follow up, Driftwood. The band has been winning fans and critics the old fashioned way: with hard work, great songs and relentless touring. The Sacramento Press cheers 'It's Americana pop rock, with a little country and a lot of California soul... I wanna listen to this album with the windows rolled down, driving along a two-lane country highway to anywhere.'
