Nicki Bluhm has just released her 2nd solo album Avondale Drive on Compass Records.  Originally from Lafayette California, now living in East Nashville Tennessee, Bluhm (of Nicki Bluhm and the Gramblers) is a little bit country, a little pop, and a little bit rock and roll, and Avondale Drive perfectly showcases her voice and songwriting chops.

Of the new record Bluhm says: “This album is a lot about building trust back in myself. Finding my own inner compass and aligning it to my authentic self. When you go through a lot of trauma, divorce, estrangement… you learn that you don’t have to repeat the patterns of the past or continue to identify with the old story.”

Contributors to Avondale Drive include Oliver Wood, James Pennebaker, Jay Bellerose, Jen Condos, Erik Slick, Erin Rae, Karl Denson, and A.J. Croce.
