Tim Bluhm’s beautiful tribute to Jay Bennett

by oz on January 11, 2010

You probably noticed the updated video on our homepage for tomorrow’s (fantastic) HearYa Live Session with The Mother Hips. I’ve been a fan of this underrated band for years and their lead singer, Tim Bluhm, also has an amazing body of work as a solo artist.‚  Give this guy a guitar and some sand beneath his bare feet at low tide and magic will happen. For instance, I’ve never heard a song that captures the spirit of Northern California quite like this one:

Tim Bluhm – California Way

If you don’t own the album California Way yet, just trust me on this. Buy it blindly and you’ll live a richer life.

Anyway, if you were a reader back when Jay Bennett died, you may remember how I didn’t want to hear his autopsy results. Last night I was perusing Tim’s YouTube Channel and found him performing this beautiful song as a tribute to Jay. Thought I’d share. I got goosebumps hearing “And I hope that they have music where you are.”

If you dig it, throw a comment on YouTube or below.
