There’s nothing in the world like a band that plays to sold out crowds every single night. Hillsburn’s tour schedule is impressive: booked solid almost every night for the month of April. You can tell right away when a band is about to fly high.
Coming to see Hillsburn play live in such an intimate setting as cozy Casa Del Popolo is like going to see Nirvana play songs off their Bleach album at Foufounes before they got HUGE!
So without further ado, here are:
Four Really Good Reasons Why You’re Gonna Love To See Hillsburn Play Live:
High Profile Gig
First off, they’ve graced the stage at high profile festivals, you know, the ones where CTV, and La PRESSE show up with their minivans and cams:
Canadian Music Week
East Coast Music Association Week
Canadian Folk Music Awards
The crowd is gonna be stellar at Casa for the show, and who knows what well known faces you might recognize. If you want to impress your date, this is the Go To show this week.
Second, their sound is hard to describe. And these days, this is almost impossible. Yet they sound fresh and contemporary. They’ve been described in the media as anthemic and timeless.
If you’re on the hunt for new music that doesn’t sound recycled and derivative, come see this band.
Egos Left at the Door
Third, there are no rock stars here. Everyone collaborates towards the UNIT, and that’s what comes across in the music, a nice cohesive sound that’s about the songs.
If you are about the music and would rather avoid the divas and drama queens of the music industry, this is YOUR NIGHT
Independent Like You’d Never Believe
Fourth, Hillsburn proves that the human spirit is still alive. Fiercely independent, the quintet decided to bypass the confines of the traditional studio environment. Instead, they choose to write, compose, collaborate and record their second album in a Halifax apartment.
When a up and coming band band buries an award-winning debut album and chooses to go the independent route for their second album, people sit up and take notice.
Birds of a feather flock together. If you value being independent and not selling out, this is a band you want to associate yourself with.
Their track Everywhere is produced by Classified.
They’ve captured the interest of FACTOR (government program that offers financial support to talent-rich artists).
