About Jess Hill
Jess Hill is a singer-songwriter risen from the countless talented denizens of East Vancouver. She is a storyteller whose delicately constructed lyrical worlds are held firmly in place by her captivating compositions. Her music will smash your heart, pinch you in your sweetest nerves, give pause to the present and sing you to sleep all in one gently fierce moment. Since releasing her debut album “Road” in 2006, Jess has been featured on CBC radio, performed at The Vancouver Folk festival, Vancouver International jazz festival, Artswells and numerous other festivals in BC, as well as becoming a much loved staple in the vastly numbered arenas of the Vancouver music scene. A phenomenal stage performer in every way, Jess Hill invites her audience to join her in her own realm. Once there, her voice, storytelling capabilities and exceptionally crafted guitar compositions can lull a room of strangers right into her palm where it crushes them with brevity and releases them reborn into the night.
Her upcoming album “Orchard,” recorded and produced by the multi-talented Aaron Joyce, pushes away from the dock of her folk roots, and onto the frontiers of new creative fires, and captivating arrangements. “Orchard” will be released in the fall of 2010.
"Immediately personable, she softly spoke into the mike as if she were whispering to her closest friend and she sang as if she were playing to an open field of dying flowers at twilight."
"Jess Hill's voice was spot on, barely trembling in all the right places."
