Happy Holidays, (or HOLIDAZE as the case may be), Just in time for the Holidays my CD Escapism releases DECEMBER 1st! Yeah! My 20th release in 20 years!

Q & A with composer/pianist Lisa Hilton on her upcoming release, “Escapism”
Q: Escapism, what kind of title is that? LH: It’s been an incredible year on our planet, hasn’t it? You can’t turn around without another crazy thing happening. I record an album every year and I have never seen so much turmoil as I have in the last eleven months. You can either get stressed and dragged down when you come face to face with the intense struggles happening. Climate, culture, and politics all seem to be in states of […]
Wonderful Reviews for “Day & Night” CD!
REVIEWS FOR DAY & NIGHT “Closer scrutiny reveals nuanced choices and numerous unforeseen turns. Hilton, brings an emotionalism to the simplest of ideas; layers of depth appear when you least expect them.” Jeff Tamarkin/Jazz times “Fantastic new CD from Lisa Hilton. We love her version of Begin The Beguine.” Toppy Jazz the #1 Jazz Station in Europe “Solo piano jazz…Lisa Hilton owns this art brilliantly: soft touch, subtle but very significant swing, a deep connection with the jazz tradition – […]
It’s definitely Spring Time! In fourth grade I went on a field trip to collect wildflowers and just fell in love with them! So spring time is wildflower time for me: today I headed 2 hours north of Los Angeles to the Antelope Valley Poppy Preserve, which I’ve never visited before. What a great spot and a refreshing day. Really fun! You can see more photos on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lisahiltonmusic/ Thank you to everyone who came out to see the performances […]
What kind words…..
Hi there, What kind words have been coming in from all around the world for the new album DAY & NIGHT. Wow! Thank you all! It’s quite touching to a musician to see their art connect with music lovers from New Hampshire to Argentina to Russia. As an independent artist I really appreciate these connections. Thank you for listening. There is still time to buy tickets for my show in San Francisco, but it looks like they might sell out […]
THANK YOU RADIO EVERYWHERE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
I just wanted to SHOUT a very grateful THANK YOU RADIO for your incredible support for DAY & NIGHT. I was composing for this last spring right after I broke my shoulder (all recovered now), and so there is an extra sense of thankfulness that this album is connecting so well with listeners in this tumultuous year we’re having so far. I do think it’s very healing music. Let me know if I’ve missed anyone, ok? Thank you for your […]
Hope you might be able to come to one of these….
Hi there! Carnegie Hall was SO much fun. The piano was in excellent shape, the acoustics in Mrs. Carnegie’s former “salon” are perfect, and there was a really warm and enthusiastic audience to the new music from DAY & NIGHT. So many people braved the chilly 20 degrees to come out – many of them friends – and we had a really great time. There are a few more performance dates – if you missed the Carnegie show, (or […]
