Biography

Chicago-based singer/songwriter Cory Hill has taken his craft to new heights with his self-titled album, Cory Hill. The new record, which was produced by Hill and Chris Lieber and mastered by Doug Van Sloun (who mastered albums for Bright Eyes, M. Ward, and She and Him ), is a mix of Americana, indie rock, and alt-country. With this record, Cory creates his own identity in the genres of artists like Ryan Adams, Mason Jennings, and Wilco. Hill’s debut release, Funny White Room, was a local and regional favorite and one of only two independent albums voted in the All Access, East Central Indiana Art & Entertainment Publication, top 10 albums of 2007. Indianapolis Nuvo Magazine said “Though only 21, Hill sings with a voice beyond his years…”. The new record brings more electric guitars and rock elements to Hill’s always direct and intimate voice. The production compliments masterful songwriting and infectious hooks.
As a local favorite when he was starting out in his hometown of Muncie, IN, Hill was given the opportunity to open for bigger acts that came to town. That early success gave him opportunities to open for Dispatch singer Pete Francis and outlaw country icon David Allen Coe. 2012 found Cory touring the Midwest and East Coast. He played shows in Indianapolis, had unforgettable stops in Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, and Philly, and shared a bill at the Living Room on New York City’s Lower East Side with Grammy nominated artist Luke Reynolds (Guster, Brett Dennen, Blue Merle).
The new record is being promoted nationally by college, satellite, and Triple-A radio campaign at the start of 2013 so call or request it online at your favorite station. Cory will also be touring the Midwest, and in particular the Chicago and Indianapolis areas. Radio and television performances are being planned as well.
