Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers
WITH DAWN MITSCHELE
Saturday, March 30
Upon hearing the unique and refreshing sound of Nicki Bluhm, it becomes immediately clear why she is in the midst of a breakout year. Nicki has filled a void in music with her brand of vintage-tinged rocking country soul -- music that's like an enchanting friend you've known for a short while but feels like you've known forever. Known widely for her "Van Sessions" cover songs performed with her band and featured on YouTube, many know Nicki BLuhm & The Gramblers already and appreciate her wholesome and less-is-more approach to music. Nicki Bluhm's sound is much like a blending of Bonnie Raitt, Linda Ronstadt, Dusty Springfield. Nicki has shared the stage with Chris Robinson, Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Steve Kimock, Jackie Greene, Pegi Young, Josh Ritter, and many others.
Supporting act for Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers
Dawn is no stranger to Sugarloaf. Though she hails from San Diego, she was born and raised in New Jersey. Dawn made quite the impression last season when she opened for Donavon Frankenreiter as a solo performer. We just had to have her back.
Dawn Mitschele (pronounced MITCH-eh-LEE) taught herself how to play guitar in high school in New Jersey and then carried it along with her to college in New York City and Spain. Dawn relocated to San Diego in the mid-2000s to begin her new-found career. Soon after writing her first few songs, she became a part of that burgeoning scene in San Diego that produced Jewel and Jason Mraz, the latter becoming a good friend who encouraged her to keep writing and performing.
Her new five-song Love Remains EP (April 2012 release) continues to receive airplay on Santa Monica’s KCRW as well as hometown stations KPRI and 91X. Two tracks, “Once And Again Friend” and “The Queen”, will be heard this fall in “Elementary” on CBS and ABC’s “666 Park Avenue” respectively. Dawn followed up her most recent tour of the East Coast this past spring with a repeat of last summer’s European tour, a mix of festivals, clubs and house shows. This fall finds her back touring the West Coast. She is also one of 12 semi-finalists in the Mountain Stage NewSong Competition and will perform in the finals at Lincoln Center in New York City on October 20, 2012.
