Lisa Hilton

Passionate pianist, prolific composer and hardworking producer, Lisa Hilton grew up in Southern California in a very musical family. Her father was a college professor and her mother did tax preparation and bookkeeping, but it was her great uncle who was a well regarded Dutch pianist. As a young girl, she taught herself to play the piano with a colored keyboard guide and soon began composing her first simple songs. She began the study of classical and modern piano literature at eight years old, and as a teen she began playing Standards and writing blues riffs. Now, Lisa Hilton's beautiful melodies, catchy beats and expressive piano style have captured the attention of music lovers everywhere. Her timeless instrumental music appeals to listeners of all ages, is currently being played on radio around the world and continues to earn awards, honors, and outstanding reviews.
