Singer, songwriter, guitarist, engineer, producer, teacher, radio DJ. Seattle native David Hillman is all these things and more. It seems he is always in the middle of a different music project every time you turn around. David currently plays in a improvisational recording project, is a member of Black Sabbath tribute band Bastard Of Reality, is a past officer of the Bushwick Book Club, and is one third of the semi-secret recording project Twelve Times A Year. Perfectly at home in the studio, a solo gig, or a date with a full band, Hillman fills up the room with a heated dedication to a mixture of traditional styles, with his eye on completely entertaining an audience. His live performances breathe with personality, verve and old-school showmanship, bringing to mind artists like Bobby Bare Jr., Tom Waits, John Spencer, and Jack White.
"Americana Hour" is David Hillman's debut solo album, which was released May 1st 2007. It was recorded in 8 days at Studio Litho in Seattle by Floyd Reitsma and delivers a solid twelve tracks of rock, alt-country, blues, and roots music that should excite any fan that can appreciate artists who convincingly meddle with different genres. David would like to thank the following musicians for all their great contributions both live and in the studio: Mark Rachuna, Ed Portnow, Pete Bush, Olivia Hamilton, Tony Ramos Michael Reisman, Mike Esparza, Lou Alexander, Charlie Holton, Jeff Geisinger, Jimmi Davies, Brian Kinsela, Kaia Chessen, Britney Williams, Chris Mysin, Bobby Taylor, Mitchell Weinberger, and Chris Black.
