Happy Independence Day!
I just wanted to wish you a Happy Holiday weekend! I’ll be hanging out with friends and family, baking my “famous” berry pie, and hopefully enjoying some sunshine. SoCal has had unusual weather lately, (though not quite as wacky as some locales), with light rain this morning – very unusual for July, but not enough to help our drought.
I wanted to thank the hundreds of radio stations who have played, and continue to play our latest CD, “HORIZONS”. We were happy to see #20 on the JazzWeek chart for a while and #9 on the ZMR chart. That support is very important to us – thank you! Thank you too to those who have bought the album on iTunes:https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/h-o-r-i-z-o-n-s/id952507209, Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Horizons-Lisa-Hilton/dp/B00QHC680G or my website: http://lisahiltonmusic.com/product/horizons/
Congrats to the new Apple Music service! Wishing you luck – happy to know our music is up there too. For those who enjoy listening to playlists on their computer, we have added quite a few different kinds on Youtube now that you might enjoy relaxing or working to: https://www.youtube.com/user/LisaHiltonMusic/playlists
New reviews: JazzWeek… “Poise and passion”… http://jazztimes.com/articles/162924-horizons-lisa-hilton
From Riveting Riffs in Canada: “Another masterpiece by an artist who continues to compose breathtakingly beautiful songs.” http://www.rivetingriffs.com/lisa_hilton_interprets_the_sky_a.html
I’ve been spending most of my days composing lately – working on longer pieces, that I am really enjoying so far. There is a relief that you begin to feel after 17 albums and 200+ tracks – I feel I can explore and experiment more now than before. It’s been fun!
Take care and have a great weekend!
