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! And yes, I do feel a wee bit overworked, but euphoric too. It is my passion, and I always feel extremely grateful when a new one is released – it really does feel a bit like a new child that you hope goes out into the world and makes a difference in […]
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 […]
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
Happy New Year! I hope you had some good times over this holiday season. It’s been busy but fun for me in SoCal.

Hi there, Well I’d like to keep those “Happy Spring” wishes going, but the weather doesn’t seem to be co-operating does it?

No matter what the weather, if you’re looking for and easy relaxed night in NYC Sunday please come by my last show of the season at ROCKWOOD MUSIC HALL/Stage 3 at 8:30 pm – there are even […]
Reviews for NOCTURNAL
NOCTURNAL REVIEWS: Lisa Hilton/piano, Terell Stafford/trumpet, JD Allen/sax, Gregg August/bass, Antonio Sanchez/drums “No one plays, writes of puts together a band better than Hilton. Another in a growing list of deep excellent works from Hilton.” Russ Davis/Voice of America/Jazz America with 134,000,000 listeners Hilton has, “Melodic gifts and song-form clarity as both a composer and player. Beauty of all sorts is abundant here.” Jeff Simon/Buffalo News “The album allows Hilton to demonstrate her mastery of the keyboard. While her compositions […]
Hello and Happy Spring! I realize that not everyone is getting spring time weather yet – I do wish everyone luck through any “spring” storms. It’s been wetter in the west than the last 5 years, so that’s a good thing for us. The meteorologists are still hoping for a “Miracle in March” – meaning MORE rain, but the west has made a lot of forward progress on drought recovery. Yeah! My news? NOCTURNAL continues to do well at radio […]
Thank you, thank you….
Hello! I wanted to thank EVERYONE: family/friends/neighbors/fans/Pepperdine staff/students and ULTRA fans who flew in from out of town, to the performance Friday night at Pepperdine University/Smothers Theatre. It was a lot of fun for me to be back in Malibu with my “home court advantage” – Pepperdine was one of the first major theatres I played 16 years ago. I loved hearing remarks afterwards – this was my favorite: “I felt like I just had a brain massage!” That puts […]

I really like the music a lot, and I hope everyone else will too. Here are the dates and times again – PLEASE pass the information to any […]
