Judith Hill - Baby, I'm Hollywood!
“a soulful, introspective, funky, toe-tapping and head-bobbing journey through Hill’s life and times. Looking at everything from interpersonal strife to the legacy of Black and Asian culture in America, the record is a brilliant encapsulation of Hill, her talents and all of the iconic musicians who helped shape her.” – American Songwriter
“She echoes Prince and other funk classics, but is also entirely herself. She deserves stardom itself, and this next record just might get her there.” – Atwood Magazine
Judith Hill has performed and/or worked with Michael Jackson, Prince, George Benson, John Legend, Spike Lee and more! Hill sang on the official soundtrack to major motion pictures Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax and Happy Feet Two and was featured in the Grammy winning film 20 Feet from Stardom (Morgan Freeman).
On her latest LP Baby, I’m Hollywood, Judith Hill unveils an ambitious, kaleidoscopic document detailing her journey of self-discovery. The 13-track record is a vibrant, defiant personal statement, a thorough excursion into the annals of Black music: past, present and future. Rich in throwback soul, stunning piano balladry, and swaggering psychedelic funk, the self-produced Baby, I’m Hollywood finds Hill liberated, focused and reborn. Bolstered by a spirited live band and her new attitude, she ruminates on pleasure, pain, celebration, and consequences, all of which inform this collection of finely-crafted stories-in-song.
“I wanted to personify Hollywood as a woman who’s a survivor. In my career, I’ve been through so many peaks and valleys, and the show must go on. The message is being persistent, bringing all of your pain and your story to the stage”, notes Hill. (continue reading full bio in downloads folder)
