From his website:
Northampton, MA, based singer-songwriter, Justin Hillman, comes home to his Americana roots with the release of his 3rd album, Have I Not Found You Yet? (2015). The Western Mass native has adventured around the world and back, residing in New York City, travelling across India, teaching in Israel, and performing and recording his lush solo work all the while. Have I Not Found You Yet? is filled with beautifully emotive, sometimes obscure songwriting, laden with pedal steel twang and the pulse of a rootsy, acoustic rhythm section. Hillman’s guitar work never fails to impress, and he keeps his audience hanging on every word with witty humor and passionate performances.
Have I Not Found You Yet? (2015)
Justin is currently touring in support of this Americana focused production.
Momentous Change (2012)
This ambitious self-produced album is filled with string arrangements, massive vocal choruses, and beautiful, atmospheric production.
As the Sun Meets the Moon (2008)
An impressive first effort by the young, developing artist, written & recorded by Hillman between the ages of 16 – 18.
