Hilton Park

A father, a son and a family friend who started writing and performing their music together just for fun, have become the band the Boston Examiner says has “reinvented acoustic”.

Hailing from Southern Maine, HILTON PARK is a 3 piece folk/Americana group made up of father/son team Bruce and Conor Hilton, and Gregg Pannier. Every song tells a story, and there’s a story behind every song. The HILTON PARK sound is authentic and endearingly classic, with enough modern grit to captivate today’s audience. Their 3 part vocal harmonies (often compared to Crosby, Stills & Nash) and their careful choice of sparse instrumentation create a soundscape so full that it's easy to forget there are only 3 people creating it.

Hilton Park is finding that in an industry where individual talent often goes unnoticed, family unity and harmony can prevail. A point driven home by their 2015 New England Music Award for “Best In State: Maine”, two “Roots Act of the Year” nominations, and a nomination for 2017 “Album of the Year”, and a June 2017 “Best Song” award from the Akademia Music Awards.

This quote from a live review echoes what folks all over are saying about Hilton Park; ”They are the folks next door who just happen to be virtuoso musicians, styling traditional folk/country instruments with fresh and original tunes. But the biggest treat may be the vocal harmonies. Our audience was enthralled. Edge of our seats, truly.”

“Hilton Park is about as New England as clam chowder and flour biscuits… rootsy folk that imparts an old time feel in brand new songs. A listener would undoubtedly imagine themself comfortably on an old front porch, right next to this dynamic trio”.

“Hilton Park is creating a whole new genre for current music. They have reinvented acoustic”
Amy Nachbar, Boston Examiner

“Hilton Park has that one-in-a-million voice you never encounter in person, and the compositional skill to make good on the gift; … a stylish salve for modern music”.
Akademia Music Awards

“Hilton Park’s new album ‘Strings’ tells its story with a warm, family tenderness that everything is going to be okay so long as you listen closely… like a sweet flowing fabric that catches warm breezes as it dries on the line out back of your summer home. From rowdy saloon bustling ballads, to soft, candied flowering story, there is something for everyone in this album.”
Megan Gazzo, The Equal Ground

“Hilton Park has made quite a name for itself in the circles of acoustic music. Their originals ring out in every note with pop brightness, harmonic finesse, and within the framework of good song craft….Hilton Park just might be the beginning of a huge music scene trend gaining more mainstream appeal.”
