Tim Bluhm Releases Merle Haggard Tribute Record ‘Hag Heaven’ Out Now

2020-11-20T22:19:45+00:00October 6th, 2020|

Tim Bluhm has released Hag Heaven,  a seamlessly performed 11-track tribute to Outlaw Country legend, Merle Haggard. Bluhm co-produced the album with Mark Adams and rallied session players: Dave Zirbel, Megan Lynch Chowning, Aidan Collins, and Daryl VanDruff.

Recorded at Tim Bluhm’s home studio with a dizzying array of vintage instruments, world-class microphones, and collectible gear, Hag Heaven is a carefully crafted and seamlessly performed collection of 11 of Merle Haggard’s greatest compositions.

“I was probably about 22 when I first really heard Merle Haggard sing. I had already been in a rock band for about 3 years. I was so attracted to his lyrics and the way he delivered them. He sang with such effortlessness and honesty, and he was good at humor too.”

Hag Heaven is available digitally as well as on limited edition vinyl.

New Single From Greg Loiacono “Animal Clouds”

2020-03-06T23:19:27+00:00January 28th, 2020|

Greg Loiacono has shared a new track called “Animal Clouds” from the full-length album ‘Mystic Traces’ coming in May on digital, vinyl and CD. Stay tuned for that, but for now, check out this great new track!

Loiacono tapped Scott Hirsch of Hiss Golden Messenger to produce the album which was recorded and mixed in Ojai, California. “Animal Clouds” features Little Wings’ Kyle Field on electric twelve-string guitar, Wilco’s Mikael Jorgensen on synthesizers, Erin Sydney on drums and Brendan Willing on bass.

“This was one of the first tracks that Scott and I laid down at the beginning of this project. And the last to be finished,” Loiacono said in a statement. “It was also one of the first songs that I wrote when starting the process for a new record a couple years back. It resonates with me more now then it did back then.”

New Release: The Mother Hips Live At The Great American Music Hall Out Now

2020-03-06T23:28:02+00:00January 27th, 2020|

The Mother Hips ‘Live At The Great American Music Hall’ is out now on digital and limited double-CD. “This album consists of recordings of concerts performed on December 15th and 16th, 2017 at San Francisco’s famed Great American Music Hall. We feel this album represents well the band as it was at that time, and that it also represents well the community that has grown around the music contained herein. In that sense these are not recordings of a band playing to a live audience so much as they are recordings of a community coming together and making the sounds of joy, of appreciation, of friendships new and old, and even some sadness. There are lots of others sounds on these recordings too but you’ll have to just listen for yourself. You might even hear your own voice in there. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.” – The Mother Hips

Reserve your CD from the Mother Hips store or the Blue Rose store.
