Live music this Friday, August 26 at Rez Art! Come see Emma Hill and Bryan Daste peform at 6pm. Should be an awesome show! Here is a short bio:

Emma Hill is celebrating ten years of playing live this fall. She and longtime musical partner, Bryan Daste, are releasing a special album of stories and songs written in each year between 2005 and 2015. The album, “Ten Years,” was recorded live at The Magic Closet in Portland, OR to capture the intimate sound that Hill and Daste create at their shows. The duo, who have been compared multiple times to Gillian Welch and David Rawlings, admit that the production of “Ten Years” was inspired by Welch’s “The Harrow & The Harvest.”

ill met Daste and they began their collaboration. Five widely well-reviewed albums, and thousands of tour miles later, the duo are going strong, bringing remarkably intimate lyrics to life with their poignant harmonies, lonesome pedal steel, and Hill’s honeyed voice and confident delivery. Critics have described their sound as ranging from folksy Americana to catchy alt-country.

Hill moved back to Alaska in the fall of 2011, combining performing for her fan base in the state with travel south for regional and national tours. She stays busy year round performing solo as well as with Daste both in Alaska and the states. The pair plays various venues but their signature performance experience is the house concert. The intimate setting of a house show lends itself perfectly to their style and will continue to be a staple of their 2016 tours in the US and Europe.

Hope to see you there!
