"Lisa Hilton has been compared to some of the best pianists in history, such as Bill Evans and Brad Mehldau..." Cicily Janus

Lisa Hilton is driven to compose. While she plays at the highest level, the driving force of her art is inside her superbly dynamic compositions. They surge with ideas, and emotion. Hilton refers to her instrument, the piano, as her true “voice” – the way she speaks and connects. “When I play, I’m communicating our world through the notes,” Hilton muses.
