New Album: The Old Silo

The Old Silo invites you into a world of new beginnings, old regrets, might-have-beens, burning questions, beautiful women, horny geezers and gold diggers.  Produced by indie rock hero Joel Plaskett and recorded at New Scotland Yard in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, The Old Silo cuts a deep, winding path through Folk, Roots Rock and Americana.

Hill has made a career as an award-winning ukulele player and songwriter, an uncompromising artist who "gives the ukulele its dignity back without ever taking himself too seriously" (Songlines).  The Old Silo sees him charting a course into deeper, rockier waters with Plaskett at the helm.  The album has an edginess and swagger unlike anything Hill has ever recorded: the thundering baritone ukulele riff in She's Still Got It wouldn't be out of place on a Black Keys album and the grinding slide ukulele in Tie One On would make Jack White proud. 

ALBUM RELEASE DATE: SEPTEMBER 16, 2014
