Today, we take 'em with Tyler Hilton. No, he is not related to those Hiltons. But he is just as cool. Make that way cooler. Indian Summer is his latest release [iTunes link]
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
Americana singer-songwriter from SoCal who just released 4th record, folkiest one yet, based on growing up in a bluegrass playing family. PHEW.
If you were not doing music, you would be...
Playing fun and weird parts on film and TV.
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
I'm GREAT at juggling, pretty good at ping pong, and a fair free-throw shooter.
Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
Teddy Geiger, an artist I've known since we both started out years ago, and I were on tour together and had a day off in L.A. He lives in NYC so he was staying at my place. We were sitting right in that moment between getting your shit together and doing laundry and other things you really should do on a day off on the road and a full blown, two-man afternoon party. The afternoon party won out and eventually gave way to a nice living room jam about what kind of night we were most likely gonna try and drum up on our night off. We wrote and demoed 'That Kind of Night' that afternoon. By the time the night actually came around, though, we were torched and passing out. Go figure.
Finish this sentence: Tyler Hilton is the artist that...
...pondered this question for so long he almost lost his entire Saturday to wondering what the fuck he's doing with his life if he doesn't know how to answer such a potentially simple question and then realized that Tyler Hilton is the artist that still can't believe he's able to do this for a living cause making up songs and recording them is the greatest job in the whole world.
Who loves Tyler Hilton as much as we do?
