James Hill

A seasoned performer with a fan base in North America, Asia and Europe, James Hill has garnered wide acclaim for his ground-breaking approach to a chronically-underestimated instrument. Over the course of his first three genre-defying albums – Playing it like it isn’t... (2002), On the Other Hand (2003) and A Flying Leap (2006) – he re-wrote every rule that had previously kept the ukulele in the realm of novelty and obscurity.

Man With a Love Song (2011), reached a new plateau yet again. “An album for troubled times," wrote TRAD magazine, "joie de vivre, tenderness and musical perfection." “Stellar," proclaimed Exlaim!

A singer, songwriter, educator and virtuoso instrumentalist, James Hill is a man on a musical mission.
