The acclaimed singer-songwriter celebrates his 25th year as a recording artist with this release. Three years in the making, the album is, without a doubt, definitely a step up for the artist, both in terms of maturity and execution, and his best production to date.
Known over the last ten years as a one-man band, on Dear Illusion, the multi-instrumentalist shares the spotlight with a horn section, The Devil Horns, as well as 7-time UK Blues Awards Drummer of the Year Mr. Wayne Proctor (A.A. Williams, Oli Brown, King King, Ben Poole). Mr Proctor also mixed and mastered the upcoming record.
About the album, Mr. Hill said: "I had a version finished right before the pandemic started. It was slated for release in April 2020. There was no point in releasing it then so I decided to wait. The sad context of the pandemic resulted in additional time for me to offer my fans the album I’m sure will meet their expectations for my 25th anniversary as a recording artist. I am very proud of the work, and ultimately the final results we were collectively able to achieve with the album, which ended up reflecting both maturity and introspection. Overall I feel like the album as a whole is telling that no matter what happens, you should give it everything you got and move on, be the best person you can be, and no matter what, the sun will rise again. Don’t dwell on suffering, and don’t forget about it, either. Even treat misfortune as a friend, slap it on the back and say “Thanks for teaching me”.
