Hello My Lovely  Sky Heroes,

It has indeed been a while but we are more alive and thriving than ever.  I have spent the last year touring with the amazing Serena Ryder, a profound artist whom I am lucky to call my best friend.  It has been a year and more of growing and filling the well and I am happy to say that I am gearing up towards writing the next body of work for the second chapter of the Sky Heroes saga.  I hope to get some new material up to share with you very soon.  Until then, keep checking back and perhaps I’ll see you out on the road this summer!  I will be joining Serena in my keyboard/guitar post for some exciting summer festival dates (see www.serenaryder.com for a complete list of shows)!

In Love and Light,

Hill

Sky Heroes Play Closer To The Heart VI Benefit

On April 12th, Hill & The Sky Heroes were asked to come out of hiding to take part in the Closer To The Heart VI Benefit. Closer to the Heart VI is a benefit concert to raise money and awareness for the Regent Park School of Music, a non-profit music school that offers heavily subsidized music classes to at-risk Toronto kids. www.rpmusic.org

The event was hosted by the inimitable Tyler Stewart (Barenaked Ladies) and this year’s CTTH performers also included: Holly Woods (Toronto), Larry Evoy (Edward Bear) and his son Cooper Evoy, Glenn Milchem (Blue Rodeo), Lorraine Segato (Parachute Club), Kevin Kane (Grapes of Wrath), Holly McNarland, Bryan Potvin (Northern Pikes) and Thompson Egbo (graduate of RPSM, now a professional jazz pianist).

We unfortunately could not be there in person but we did provide two videos of our chosen Canadian written songs to be included to show our support for this wonderful program. A Drake song and a song by our dear friend and fellow Sky Hero, Sass Jordan. Below you will find our version of Drake’s “Hold On We’re Going Home”. We hope you enjoy it!

TIFF INVASION!

Sky Heroes! We are coming out of hiding after our Drake Residency for a Toronto International Film Festival Invasion!

We’ll be rocking two shows:

Throw on your best glad rags and come out to the joint for some giggle water, hoofing and whoopie. We promise it’ll be the cat’s pyjamas. Tell your friends. Spread the word!

In Love and Light,
Hill
