New Album: The Old Silo

"Brilliant. Hill's most mature album to date... a career highlight." - Country Jukebox

James' album The Old Silo is now available!  Click here to listen to the whole thing. The Old Silo is also on iTunes and at the Borealis Records website.
The Old Silo invites you into a world of new beginnings, old regrets, might-have-beens, burning questions, beautiful women, horny geezers and gold diggers.  Produced by indie rock hero Joel Plaskett and recorded at New Scotland Yard in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, The Old Silo cuts a deep, winding path through Folk, Roots Rock and Americana.

Hill has made a career as one of Canada's "premiere roots musicians" (The Scene), an award-winning ukulele player who "gives the ukulele its dignity back without ever taking himself too seriously" (Songlines).  However, "if you thought James Hill was simply the ukulele wunderkind, his latest album will convince you that he is also a great songwriter" (Penguin Eggs). The Old Silo sees him charting a course into deeper, rockier waters with Plaskett at the helm.  The album has an edginess and swagger unlike anything Hill has ever recorded: the thundering baritone ukulele riff in She's Still Got It wouldn't be out of place on a Black Keys album and the grinding slide ukulele in Tie One On would make Jack White proud.
