The Mother Hips are back with a new album, When We Disappear, a compelling new studio album set for release January 27, 2023 on Blue Rose. Based in Northern California, the Hips headed to New Mexico, spending time at Ghost Ranch before settling in at Jono Manson's Kitchen Sink studio in Sante Fe in late 2021 for the sessions. Self-produced, When We Disappear features nine new tracks co-written by co-founders Tim Bluhm and Greg Loiacono — a collection of lit-psych rock songs Inspired by psychology and literature — as well as a raw, garagey cover of Buffy St. Marie’s 1964 addiction song “Codine.”

Hailed by the San Francisco Chronicle as “one of the Bay Area’s most beloved live outfits,” The Mother Hips' headline and festival performances have became the stuff of legend, finding them sharing stages with everyone from Johnny Cash and Wilco to Lucinda Williams and The Black Crowes. Rolling Stone called the band “divinely inspired,” while Pitchfork praised their “rootsy mix of 70’s rock and power pop,” and The New Yorker lauded their ability to “sing it sweet and play it dirty.”


Mark Adams is a musician, farmer and winemaker from California’s Central Coast. He helms Ledge Vineyards, an acclaimed winery in Paso Robles where his folk/rock/ Americana band is based. His music has aired on SiriusXM, network television and an array of terrestrial radio stations. His recordings enjoy regular airplay on Central California’s NPR station, KCBX out of San Luis Obispo.

Adams was previously based in Los Angeles where he worked at Sony Pictures as a sound editor (Arrested Development) and fronted the country rock band Rancho Deluxe, whose recordings included collaborations with Jaydee Maness (Beck, The Byrds) and Don Heffington (Bob Dylan, Lucinda Williams) among others. Shortly thereafter Adams planted a vineyard in his home town, the now burgeoning wine region of Paso Robles. This Central California location is a hotbed for live music, and his band performs at a wide variety of venues throughout the year.

Prior to California Bound, Adams and producer Tim Bluhm released “Loaded with Lefty: A Tribute to Lefty Frizzell“ and in turn Adams Produced Bluhm’s “Hag Heaven: A Tribute to Merle Haggard” on the Blue Rose Music label.
