A father, a son and a family friend who started writing and performing their music together just for fun, have become the band the Boston Examiner says has “reinvented acoustic”.
Hailing from Southern Maine, HILTON PARK is known in the Northeastern U.S. for earthy, emotionally expressive and superbly crafted Americana, Folk & Blues. Every song tells a story, and there’s a story behind every song. The HILTON PARK sound is authentic and endearingly classic, with enough modern grit to captivate today’s audience.
Award winning Acoustic Roots trio HILTON PARK share their unique blend of timeless tales and soulful Blood Harmony with audiences young and old. Hilton Park is finding that in an industry where individual talent often goes unnoticed, family unity and harmony can prevail. A point driven home by their 2015 New England Music Award for “Best In State: Maine”, and two “Roots Act of the Year” nominations. With the new CD, “Moments…” along with their varied instrumentation (guitars, piano, mandolin, dulcimer, cello, flute, bouzouki), stylish and confident 3-part vocal harmonies fill the repertoire, combining the ‘blood harmony’ only heard in family acts (from the Everly Brothers to the Avett Brothers) with a melodic skill often compared to Crosby, Stills and Nash.
This quote from a live review echoes what folks all over are saying about Hilton Park; "They are the folks next door who just happen to be virtuoso musicians, styling traditional folk/country instruments with fresh and original tunes. But the biggest treat may be the vocal harmonies. Our audience was enthralled. Edge of our seats, truly.”
