“If you thought James Hill was simply the ukulele wunderkind," writes Penguin Eggs magazine, "his latest album will convince you that he is also a great songwriter.” Produced by Joel Plaskett in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, The Old Silo invites you into a world of new beginnings, old regrets, beautiful women, horny geezers and gold diggers. Nominated for both JUNO and ECMA awards, the album cuts a winding path through Folk, Roots and Americana, “reflecting the musical maturity of Hill and Plaskett and delivering in every aspect of music-making.” (The Manitoban)
An award-winning songwriter who “gives the ukulele its dignity back without ever taking himself too seriously” (Songlines), James Hill “proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that in the right hands the uke can be a formidable axe” (Ann Arbor News).
