• Carol Cleveland Sings On the Hill Session

    We super-duper love Gretchen and Thomas. From the moment we met them three-ish years ago, we were sure they were two very special people. Carol Cleveland Sings showcases Thomas’s songwriting in a comfortably-quirky, yet understatedly classy…

Haunt the House On the Hill Session

I saw these fellas play together, and 32 seconds in to the first track, I was already thinking about how I can word a request for them to play a session: I was feeling it. I…

Irene Molloy 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…
