In this month's issue of Outside magazine, they profile Tim Bluhm, and the lead sentence will be of interest to Hobopoet fans: "Tim Bluhm lives in a 1995 Chevy Sportvan, but don't let that throw you: the lead singer of the San Fransisco band the Mother Hips has still managed to release nine albums, play more than 2,000 concerts, and build a cultish fan base -- all the while stringing together a life of wilderness rambles that are as much Jack London as Jack Johnson."
I've never heard Bluhm's music, but Hobopoets may be interested in supporting a fellow vagabond whose work Outside describes as "a sun-soaked sound that blends Merle Haggard with the Beach Boys," as well as "along the lines of Gram Parsons and Townes Van Zandt."
I like seeing car-dwelling folks being productive like this -- creating music and adventure. His website is here. Keep it up, Tim!
