While many kids take up swimming lessons or join the Scouts or Girl Guides, Scotty Hills was embarking on the journey to become a professional musician.
At age two, Hills was trying his best to sing like Aretha Franklin or Diana Ross on the radio. By age four, Hills was working in the studio along side his mother, a session singer, recording radio commercials.
For 10 years, Scotty toured the world as a blues drummer, singer and writer for Juno nominated blues band The Perpetrators. He has released a couple of albums, including 2012’s Year of Septembers, which was signed to the largest independent publisher in the world.
Hills will release his highly anticipated follow up Great Regression in the near future, which has been graced by some legendary “soul train-era” Motown singers.
Scotty has toured, co-written, supported and recorded with such artists as Taj Mahal, Shaun Verreault, The Perpetrators, Rianna, Los Lobos, Hubert Sumlin, Teagan and Sarah and Jordan (Reignwolf) Cook.
Hills will play at Legacy Guitar and Coffee House Aug. 15 at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at legacyguitarhouse.com.
