The Hill and Wood



Biography

Hailing from Charlottesville, indie-rock sentries The Hill and Wood have been one of Virginia's most critically adored new-fangled band for over two years. Led by Boston native Sam Bush and Asheville native Juliana Daugherty, the band has shifted from their folk-pop roots and integrated themselves into a multifaceted and stratified sound. The music's firm foundation rests on good songwriting, strong melodies and soaring harmonies. After launching their first full-length album in November of 2011 The Hill and Wood has been touring the country for the past year and half, playing SXSW, CMJ, and several other festivals as well as recording a Daytrotter session. Having taken their time to do it right, their sound has grown professional without losing its sincerity, and they bear out a promising sign for what’s to come as they work on recording a second album this year.
