    Irene Molloy On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

    Irene is a pretty special talent: she writes and sings the heck out of some of the catchiest tunes you’ll hear; she acts—like, really acts; she’s wicked smaht…and she’s positively one of the sweetest, most down-to-earth…

    Art on the Hill, Featuring Todd Marrone

      We are profoundly saddened at the passing of one of the most inspirational humans with whom we’ve ever had the good fortune to cross paths. Todd Marrone was—and will continue to be—a gracious star: one…

Anna Vogelzang On The Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

  Anna introduced herself to us several months ago in a “hey, how ya doin’?” kind of email. She had some really nice things to say, which which we appreciated (of course), and she shared a…

The Bright Smoke  003

The Bright Smoke On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

  The Bright Smoke has got vibe. Twenty-years-ago-me would make fun of now-me for saying so, but that’s only because I wouldn’t have gotten it back then. I hope I get it now! Mia and Quincy…

Jim Trainer On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

Jim was our very first On the Hill performer; in fact, he’s mostly responsible for the title of our lovely blog! Jim is a huge personality with a giant voice and many, many words with which…

Modern Inventors  005reverse

Modern Inventors On The Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

Modern Inventors’ name immediately made me think of a quote from someone in the US Patent Office, circa 1900: “Everything that can be invented has been invented.” …to which—of course—there isn’t much truth; however, in the…

Pine Barons  012

Pine Barons On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

We immediately liked these fellas: their songs are totally good, wicked catchy, and really interestingly arranged. Also, they’re each about a sweet as you can imagine a 20-ish-year-old guy to be…perhaps even sweeter. We had an…

Blair Bodine On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

Mirah  010

Mirah On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

Mirah is a joy to listen to, and a joy to share space with. Her songs are sophisticated and innovative in their lyrics and arrangements, but completely accessible and easy to enjoy. I really can’t say…

Kelley McRae  005

Kelley McRae On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

Kelley came to us via a mutual friend with excellent taste. Unsurprisingly, she’s wonderful. This session represents one of those all-too-rare situations wherein time and place align in just the right way: Kelley and Matt were…

Christopher Davis-Shannon On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

  I feel a little bit lucky to have met CDS (I can only guess that no one calls him this, but it’s how I think of him…): he is a beacon of positivity! Christopher (or…

Psalmships  004

Psalmships On the Hill Session at Kettle Pot Tracks

  Josh probably doesn’t realize this, but…wait…no—let’s begin again: I’m sure Josh is aware of this, but I think that I could draw a fairly straight path between our meeting seven or eight years ago, and…
