Keller Williams has surprised fans everywhere with the release of a brand new EP! Titled Bluhm, Williams has shared new music in hopes of raising money for his dear friend Tim Bluhm. Bluhm has been recovering from a paragliding accident, and his medical bills continue to pile up. Thus, Williams decided to take matters into his own hands, and recruited a number of talented musicians in the process, including Jackie Greene, Reed Mathis, Jason Crosby, Larry Keel and Kenny Keel.
You can find the album here, and read Keller Williams’ statement below.
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. Last year, while paragliding his speed wing, upon landing, he snapped his leg in half at the ankle. But he didn’t die. Oh no. Through the pain and the surgeries and the traction, he still pushes on, recording music and playing shows. Obviously, the medical bills are massive. I look at it as a perfect excuse to record five of my favorite Tim Bluhm songs for download, with all the proceeds going to help him get back on his foot. I’m joined by Jackie Greene, Reed Mathis, Jason Crosby as well as Larry Keel and Jenny Keel. Like most covers I play, I take great liberties with this music. 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. Kw
Get well soon Tim!
