In a uniquely satisfying musical synthesis, singer/composer Timothy Hill weaves a natural purity of voice with threads of otherworldly abstract sound, blending seamlessly into a style that defies description. Having performed with such diverse artists as Pete Seeger, Jeff Buckley and Bill Frisell, it is no wonder that Hill's musical explorations span the genres of folk, jazz, world music, contemporary classical and improvisation. As a member of David Hykes and the Harmonic Choir, he has been a pioneer in the art of harmonic singing, prompting The New York Times critic Robert Palmer to praise Hill as "a virtuoso of the Tibetan chanting technique."
Mr. Hill has released three recordings of original songs - This Bright World, The Human Place, and Spirit's Body - and contributed to the new spoken-word-with-music collection Pete Seeger: The Storm King, as well as recordings by artists such as alternative rock chanteuse Katell Keineg, klezmer clarinetist Giora Feidman, composer/cellist Robert Een and Irish traditional singer and flautist Cathal McConnell. Hill performed on eight recordings by David Hykes and the Harmonic Choir, including their seminal work, Hearing Solar Winds.
