SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT—and Hill House Artist & Alum News

We’re pumped to announce something that has been in the works for a while, thanks to Sean Twomey, who runs the site About 45 Degrees and works with Real People Media. Sean has been interviewing current residents and alumni from the Hill House, talking to them about their work, life, and experience at the residency. And today, you all get to hear the result!

Now streaming: Artists of Hill House podcast.

The Artists of Hill House Podcast will release two new episodes every two weeks. Soon you’ll be able to find the podcast on iTunes and other streaming sites, but for now check out Sean's site to get your fix. The first two episodes feature

  1. Charming Disaster’s Ellia Bisker and Jeff Morris

  2. Photographer, musician, and writer Kay Ballardinelli

This is your chance to take a sneak peek into what happens at the Hill House and what type of people come through those doors. (Hint: awesome. The type of who people come through those doors are awesome.)



Finishing up the current season of Hill House Artists are Alison Powell, a writer, and Marco Wilkinson, another writer! We made sure the printer ink was stocked and we’re hoping that the spring weather gives life to new ideas at the Hill House.

Next up is the brand new season of the residency. Watch your inbox for an email introducing you to all the artists we’re expecting to visit the Hill House over the next 6 months. For now, we say welcome to the first artist—Savannah Carlin, a visual artist.  



Two announcements of albums dropping from Hill House alum.

The first: Calgary-based musician Jennifer Crighton releases her album Hermitess today! This album was written primarily during Jennifer’s two-week stay at the Hill House. Even the album cover features a photo (below) taken during her stay at the Hill House. We may be biased, but we’re totally smitten with this music. See the video for the track “Blood Moon,” sample a couple songs, and buy the album!


The second: Heather Lockie, who is ¼ of three-thirds (maybe you saw them at our Hill House Showcase last month? If so: lucky you.), just released a solo album called “Marshweed in the Garden.” Read more about it here. Take a listen and purchase the album on bandcamp. Awesome work, Heather!
