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 […]

Although the album has only been out a few days, I’ve gotten a few nice reviews already: “What is evident […]
You Are Invited To The Debut of Music From Day & Night
Q&A with Lisa Hilton on NOCTURNAL out January 22

I also saw a comedian in Los Angeles, make us laugh when he noted that soon we’d all be the […]

He really is incredibly talented and was a pleasure to work with. Everyone knows that […]
Happy Holidays To YOU!
Hopefully you are making it through the Holiday Season well so far and I hope that you soon will have some time to relax with your loved ones. I’m sharing this photo of my little 14 year old Italian greyhound Ricky from last year – I’m thankful for every year he’s still with me – he seems to get sweeter as he ages! I’ve been the elf around here after my piano time. It’s been so busy that this year […]
Hi There! Fall is really here, isn’t it? I’m excited to tour on the east coast and see some real fall foliage. Here in SoCal, the only foliage colors are brown from our drought.
