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 they have been referred to as a “three piece quintet”…
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.
”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.”
