LOS ANGELES, CA – November 12, 2015 – GRAMMY winner Judith Hill will appear on “CBS This Morning” tomorrow, November 13. The acclaimed singer-songwriter will be interviewed by Gayle King. Hill just released her debut album, Back In Time (NPG Records), which she co-produced with multi-platinum icon Prince at Paisley Park Studios in Minneapolis.
Earlier this week, Hill performed at “Earth in Concert: Protecting the Planet Through Music” at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. The event, which also featured performances by Ziggy Marley and Dwight Yoakam, benefited the Global Wildlife Conservation and the GRAMMY Museum. Hill and her new band, which made its debut that evening, brought the house down. The overwhelming reaction has fueled plans for a national tour in early 2016 – and fans may even be treated to a few surprise shows before year’s end. The band is made up of stellar musicians, including her mother, keyboardist Michiko Hill, who has played with Wayne Shorter, Rufus and Sly Stone, and her father, bassist Pee-Wee Hill, who has backed such artists as Billy Preston, Jimmy Smith and Sly Stone, guitarist Tony Maiden, and Saxophonist Marcus Anderson, who has played with NPG Hornz/Prince, Anthony Hamilton.
“‘Back in Time’…firmly establishes Ms. Hill’s own nostalgic vision of R&B,” said The New York Times. Rolling Stone noted, “Back In Time has a vintage-soul feel, with jazz shadings and a powerful dose of post-Ferguson social commentary” while NPR said, “Back In Time represents the struggle of aspiring to heights unknown, with nothing to break your fall but a steadfast trust in a higher power.”
“If her performance of ‘Cry, Cry, Cry’ on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert is anything to go by, Hill has written an album not only filled with emotion and soul, but perfect for live performances,” said Billboard.You can view her performance of “Cry, Cry, Cry,” the first single from Back In Time, HERE. The single is streaming HERE on TIDAL and can be purchased HERE.
Hill won a GRAMMY® earlier this year when the Morgan Neville-directed documentary 20 Feet From Stardom was honored as Best Music Film. The film, which also won an Oscar, shines the spotlight on the untold true story of singers like Hill and co-stars Darlene Love, Merry Clayton and Lisa Fischer, who have backed some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Judith has supported such artists as the late Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, John Legend and Josh Groban. She was a contestant on season four of “The Voice.”
