Harold is so down to earth it amazes me how clearly he
sees the stars, knowing they're within the realm of his grasp, without ever losing sight
of what's right at hand, what came before and what will be. Harold is a dreamer, but one
who knows that dreams become reality through hard work, perseverance and most of all love.
His love of life, family and friends is as natural to him as the air he breathes. At the
same time, his innate sense of humor brings him to the forefront demonstrating a sharp wit
and an unshakable zest for happiness; to himself and all who come to know him.
Harold is simply Harold. I doubt he'd know how to be
anything other than true to himself or those around him. He has a strong sense of purpose,
integrity, and faithfulness that makes him a man who will never forget where he came from,
who he is, and least of all those who stood beside him on his journey through life.
This is the making of a man such as Harold and the
essence of his music reflects all that he is. This is also the making of a brand new
album, self titled, "Harold Hill", filled with his passion for life, family,
friends and memories.
"Harold Hill", the album, has been a long
time comin' but well worth the wait. Hill's songwriting skills are equaled by his vocal
talent... both are distinctive and honest to goodness, "true" country.
Every song on "Harold Hill" is well written.
All but 3 of the 11 songs were written or co-written by Harold. The musicians were well
chosen, the perfect compliment to the album and to Harold's style.. or I should say
"styles" as a sensitive ear can denote changes in his delivery according to how
the song affects him as he sings, showing that his voice delivers what is truly felt in
his heart. With great musicians, Hill's vocals and the producion of the album (also done
by Hill himself), "Harold Hill" is a perfect combination of country music; from
western swing to honky tonkin' to heartbreakin' ballads, making it one of the finest
releases of the year.
Speaking of "heart" songs,
"Perfume" has to be my all time favorite from this collection along with
"Little Cowgirl Goodnight", which Harold wrote for his darling little girl,
This album has been a long time comin' but I expected
nothing less from Hill and actually got more than I bargained for. Harold Hill, the album
and the man, are proof positive that hard work, determination and talent cannot be
stifled! "Harold Hill" is a perfect example of "My Kind Of Country".
With that said, let me introduce you to the music of
