There are few artists who have the full range of musical gifts possessed by singer and songwriter Anne Hills, and fewer still who have worked so hard and so successfully to hone those gifts.

Anne displayed these gifts in her sparkling performance which charmed our audience. We look forward to her return this December on a program with Priscilla Herdman and Cindy Mangsten.

The Kerrville Music Foundation recognized her skills by naming her their 1997 Outstanding Female Vocalist of the Year, and her duet children's recording, Never Grow Up, released in 1998 with Cindy Mangsen on Flying Fish Records was chosen for the coveted 1998 Parents Choice Award.

The regular appearance of her solo recordings on "best of" lists around the country and the demand for her at festivals, concerts and seminars on songwriting prove Anne's star is shining more brightly than ever.

  • "Anne Hills is such an exquisite singer that it's understandable that people might be swept up in the pure beauty of her voice and thereby overlook her writing. That would be a mistake. For me, Anne's writing, in songs like 'Follow That Road' and many others, is as direct, melodic and deep as any work being done today. She is quite simply one of my absolute favorite songwriters."
      Tom Paxton

  • One of the most glorious voices in all of contemporary folk music.
      Chicago Tribune

  • Hills has carved a distinct niche by performing contemporary folk songs in a stunning voice ... Experimenting with country, blues and jazz techniques, she brings a fresh vision to many of the finest folk songs being written today.
      Michigan Daily

  • A singer of superb vocal purity ... she gives songs a life of their own. Anne Hills could sing the week's cable listings and make them sound marvelous.
