Isaac Alexander Salamander Hill
Isaac has been writing songs since he was 12, and looks at it as a craft, a passion, and a spiritual practice. His songs are lyrically dense with the darting, inventive melodies of a wood thrush. His musical lineage embraces classic country, British Isles traditionals, bluegrass, and singer songwriters such as Leonard Cohen, Sufjan Stevens and Bruce Springsteen. He fronts the Pittsburgh based band The Hills and the Rivers, a large acoustic ensemble that has shared bills with the likes of Billy Strings, Rusted Root and Rising Appalachia, but has recently relocated to a small farm in central NY to start a permaculture homestead with his sweetie.
