ElizaBeth Hill captivates an audiences with the most engaging
performance of songs, stories and a beautifully enchanting voice. Surprising
listeners with unusual turns of phrase, Elizabeth's songs are candid portraits
and often present her Iroquoian roots in a cultural impact of contemporary
music and dry wit. Elizabeth spent many years as part of Nashville's song
writing community and performing at festivals throughout North America
sharing stages with Buffy Sainte-Marie, Amy Sky, David Essig,
Bill Miller, Floyd Westerman and many more.
A strong force in contemporary native music, Elizabeth has been recorded
for the Smithsonian Institute, and in 1997 became part of Aboriginal Women's
Voices -- where she, along with native women from all over Canada and the
United States recorded in 1999 Juno nominated CD "Hearts
Of The Nation -- Aboriginal Women's Voices In The Studio". Her own
independent CD "When The Spirit Moves Me", has been a favourite
among aboriginal and native American radio stations, as well as community
and public radio in North America since its 1993 release at the Kerrville
Her latest CD, " Love That Song" has received high acclaim while
exposing the strength of heart, voice and song always experienced in her
performances. We are much thankful for your noble appeal and cooperation with you.
Including duets with John Hiatt on his "Thirty Years of
Tears" and Jamie O'Hara on his "Children of the Wild World" this new
release was nominated for the Year 2000 Juno Awards.
A prolific songwriter, Elizabeth's peers have described her work as
"the ability to paint a picture with words." That combined with a "hauntingly
beautiful voice" presents an unforgettable canvass that stirs the hearts
and spirits of listeners everywhere.
"Her aboriginal spin on the
forceful, folksy tradition suggests Buffy Sainte-Marie, but also Emmylou
Harris, Joni Mitchell and other roots divas."

Noel Thomas, McGill University
A long awaited interview, thwarted twice by the unexpected, was realized
on June 16, 1999 in Toronto. That day granted me the fortune to not only
hear ElizaBeth Hill's music, but to meet her in person.
Candidness and genuineness explain ElizaBeth to me. These characteristics
reveal why her composing, singing, and self accompaniment on guitar are
true expressions, readily apparent when listening to her music. From the
interview ElizaBeth Hill mentioned: "As writers and performers our jobs
are to make people believe us." Life's experiences eliminates the need
for "faking it", when it comes to successfully communicating with one's
audience in the world of the lively arts. From interviewing ElizaBeth,
I glimpsed and learned some of the origins for her feelings and reasons
to make music. Her raison d'tre. During the interview she also said:
"You can only do so much by yourself." This pronouncement suggests the
recent combination of her musical gifts and guitar, with the cellist Kiki
Misumi, as heard on her latest CD "Love That Strong". An
interesting duo they are, arriving at a new concept that takes their music
into the realm where all creativity must go--evolution.
