Tim Bluhm is frontman of acclaimed San Francisco rock outfit The Mother Hips, a solo artist, an accomplished rock climber, and an avid paraglider. In late 2015, Tim was speed-flying near California’s 10,000 ft. Mt. San Jacinto when he lost control and crashed – an accident that he and doctors considered near fatal. He shattered his pelvis and his foot was nearly separated from his leg, connected by an artery. Though doctors said he would never walk again, Tim has made almost a complete recovery. Over the course of a dozen surgeries and heavy rehabilitation, Tim wrote the songs on his appropriately-named new album, Sorta Surviving.
