In this episode of IPR Studio One's "Java Blend," host Ben Kieffer catches up with singer-songwriter Bob Hillman after his decade-long break from music.
Listen to the podcast below to hear tracks from Hillman's new album, "Lost Soul," as well as several of his old hits.
San Francisco singer/songwriter Bob Hillman is back with a new album after more than ten years away from the business. After over a decade away from the stage and studio, Bob Hillman returns with the full-length album Lost Soul. The album’s title is ironic in the sense that, with his longtime musical mentor ex-Plimsoul Peter Case at the helm, the San Francisco-based singer/songwriter has found his way out of the creative wilderness. He taps back into literate, tuneful songwriting that defined earlier works like Playing God(1999), Welcome To My Century (2001), and If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home(2006). This time, however, he moves beyond the Americana-leaning folk-rock of his past to embrace a fresh, contemporary sonic landscape; the result is a less crafted, more visceral album.
