Justin Hillman is a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and recording engineer from the Berkshire Hills of Western, Massachusetts. Born and raised around campfire song circles, his sound is rooted in folk music with an inclination toward the Avante Garde. Justinʼs unique, textural acoustic guitar work is reminiscent of Nick Drake. His smokey voice and contemplative lyrics, full of spirit and love, tell tales and teach lessons in a new and refreshing way. He has earned comparisons to Ray Lamontagne and Andrew Bird.
Justin has been writing and recording music with unwavering dedication for nearly a decade. He has been earning credits as a recording engineer and session musician since the age of 16, and at 18 he released his debut album “As The Sun Meets The Moon” (2008).
Today, Justin continues to perform his evocative solo work throughout the Northeast, currently promoting his sophomore album, “Momentous Change” (2012). Sought after on stage and in the studio for his critical ear and aesthetic sensibility, Justin performs and records with artists across many genres, from folk to new age and kirtan music.
