Mixing hints of roots-driven rock and roll with flavors of classic, Muscle Shoals-style soul has proven to be a winning combination for this multifaceted LA talent.

Grammy winning singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Judith Hill has the kind of voice you won't soon forget. You might get some hints of Aretha Franklin from her latest single "Baby, I’m Hollywood!" - but Hill's amazing personal history is enough to put her in a class all her own, and that's before you take into account her soul-stirring, intoxicating vocal performance.

Having made her career in Los Angeles, Hill is an accomplished independent artist who has worked closely with legendary talents Michael Jackson, Spike Lee, and George Benson, as well as having toured with Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Ringo Starr, John Legend, and Josh Groban. She’s also had the supreme privilege of being one of the last musicians to be mentored by Prince — he co-produced her debut album "Back In Time."

"Baby, I’m Hollywood!" is the title track from Hill's upcoming full-length release. This soul-drenched groove delivers an enticing preview of what is sure to be an outstanding follow-up to her 2018 burner "Golden Child." Mixing hints of roots-driven rock and roll with flavors of classic, Muscle Shoals-style soul has proven to be a winning combination for this multifaceted LA talent.

Judith Hill has toured across the globe and most recently performed at the Georgia Comes Alive festival in partnership with Headcount to help get out the vote in Georgia. Recently, her vocals were featured on Gerard Way’s “Here Comes The End,” as heard in the trailer of the Netflix series “The Umbrella Academy.”
