Keller Williams has announced the release of a new EP, Bluhm, which will raise money for the medical expenses of his friend Tim Bluhm, who was badly injured in a paragliding accident last year. The album contains five covers of Bluhm’s songs.
In a note announcing the release, Williams lauded Bluhm’s music, writing, “Tim Bluhm, to me, is the epitome of a west coast songwriter. His solo records, and those with The Mother Hips, just reek of California. As a Virginian, I always would dream of the promised land of Pacific time. Tim’s songs have always conjured images of that beautiful section of the country and have fed my longing to be there.”
Williams goes on to note that the EP includes help from Jackie Greene, Reed Mathis, Jason Crosby and Larry and Jenny Keel. “Like most covers I play, I take great liberties with this music,” Williams writes. “Due to my love for these songs, this project was incredibly easy and came together in just a few weeks. Please enjoy while we help to get Tim stompin’ again.”
Bluhm can be purchased here. 100 percent of the net proceeds will benefit the Tim Bluhm Medical Fund.
