We secretly wish we could belt it out with the best of them, so when we get the chance to meet a local cutie whose bragging chops run the gamut from musical all-star (vocals and instruments) to Gap model, suffice to say we’re green with envy.
After nabbing country crooner Nicki Bluhm of Nicki Bluhm and The Gramblers
for our Bay Area band roundup
, we knew this dark-haired beaut was one to watch. And, boy we were right. In the last few years, Bluhm has managed to craft soul-shaking singles, grace international billboards, stage-hop with Hall & Oates, and still find time to chill out in her Outer Sunset casa. We caught up with the singer before she jetted off to Marfa on tour to talk style, music, and much more — of course, while previewing some of her favorite ensembles along the way. Major inspiration ahead!
