ABOUT THE SHOW
Cliff Hillis will release a new 6 song EP "Many Happy Returns" through San Francisco’s TallBoy Records on Friday June 9th. The title lightheartedly refers to Hillis revisiting his pop roots, most evident on the kickoff track of the same name, which meshes sunny harmonies with a memorable sing-along chorus.
Hillis's lyrics hits more serious notes on the guitar jangle-rocker “Time An Evangelist”, a reflection on today's fractured political landscape, and the sneakily smooth 70's sounding breakup song "Superfluous".
The 6 songs feature Hillis's singing and playing at the forefront, but he gets by with a little help from his musical friends including Ben Arnold, Greg Maragos (The Everthere), Pat Berkery (War On Drugs, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), David Kershner, Fred Berman (Amos Lee), Corin Ashley, Amy Fairchild among others. Co-writes include noted songwriters Dan Bern and Bill DeMain.
Although each track has it’s own distinct sound, there’s no mistaking Cliff Hillis’ voice ringing through clear as a bell, backed by lush instrumentation, driving guitars and floating synth sounds. Hillis's songs are sure to find you making many happy returns to this EP.

Dave Marsh said, “If there still was a recording industry, this would come out on a major label and would be such a big hit you’d be sick of her by now. Not many people make records this good.”
