Tim Hill x EP

It’s a curious thing. All the shades of green. Plants. Water. The absolute necessities of life. Music, too, is an absolute necessity. To capture both color and sound in a bottle to put atop a piano like a houseplant. A clock. A fern. Synesthesia. These songs are meant for that. To close your eyes and see green. To drown in the color of piano. Drawing influence from the psyche of Bill Evans’ Rhodes and Koji Kondo’s synthesizers, Shades of Green is a melancholic covey that pulls hard on the heart strings musically and lyrically, brushed over with a plethora of improvisation in smooth watercolors.

Tim Hill's Shades Of Green EP is out now in partnership with Calico Discos.


Tim Hill x Shades of Green

"Shades of Green started off as a simple acoustic tune that was experimented into something more with synths and string arrangements to create a painting of emotion. It’s a song of how loss can change the lives around us, and, despite past failures and shortcomings, be transformative in becoming a stronger person for the ones we love." - Tim Hill

The song "Shades of Green" shares the name with Tim Hill's upcoming EP available on October 20th, 2023.

Tim Hill x Giant

Tim Hill releases his new album Giant on Innovative Leisure / Calico Discos, a collection of cowboy tunes and Americana ballads that feel forged out of the embers of a desert campfire and steeped in affection for artists like Randy Newman, Warren Zevon, and Neil Young.

On “Candlestick,” Tim takes his graceful chords and melody and applies them to a poem written by his friend, the artist Ry Welch who also directed the video.

Tim Hill x The Irish Sea

"...the Southwestern cowboy, who hums songs of simpler times. A storyteller at heart, the Americana multi-instrumentalist’s music hits you right in the feels" - Buzzbands

"...latest dusty ballad “The Clock’s Never Wrong” is perfectly apt for a song that feels wrong to listen to outside of the wide-open spaces of rural America" - Flood

"Mournful pedal steel pairs with Tim Hill's perfectly exhausted delivery... I’m a sucker for an album that’s pushing aside serenity in favor of simply finding solace and “Calico” hints that Giant is just that kind of record" - Raven Sings the Blues

"Hill's adoration of the likes of Neil Young (as well as classic Americana and singer-songwriter country) is as clar as day, just smoothed out by the California sun and good doses of campfire-friendly placidity.  Giant is well written and expertly played...." Shindig

Tim Hill releases the single "The Irish Sea" from the forthcoming LP Giant (due out February 10th).  According to Hill, the single "was written in proximity to the sea in a pub in Ireland on a napkin. The music came sometime later."

Tim Hill x Clock's Never Wrong
Listening to Tim Hill’s new album, Giant—a rugged, tasteful batch of cowboy tunes and Americana ballads that feel forged out of the embers of a desert campfire—you might assume that he’s been working on a ranch his whole life. You’d be half right: Hill is indeed a rancher, working in the Orange County, California, area of Silverado, but he’s actually a relative novice when it comes to tasks like tending to horses and driving a tractor. He only just got the job since the pandemic started, inspired on something of a whim: “I always kind of thought I could work on a ranch,” Hill says. “So I just looked around for some jobs and they had an opening.”
Hill shares a new video for third album single "The Clock's Never Wrong" directed by Matthew Correia (Allah-las). Tim explains, "We thought it would be fitting to shoot a ‘day in the life’ kinda thing. The ranch has been instrumental in getting back to a simpler and more rewarding way of navigating my place in the world. Scenes of horseshoes clanking on an anvil and dumping manure are the kinds of things I like to see and do nowadays. It wasn’t our intention at the beginning, but the shots through LA give a sense of a man not particularly fitting into his surroundings."
Video director Correia adds, “Tim and I tend to pick it up right where we last left it. A catch phrase from some old western, a line from some broken ballad. We know each other by these familiar monologues so when when the cameras come out we both know what to do without saying much.”
