An emerging artist in folk, alt-country music, singer-songwriter Emma Hill of Portland, Oregon recorded her first album "Just Me" in August, 2007 when she was 19. She had moved to Portland from Alaska, migrating with many other Anchorage musicians who came to try and make a go of it in Portland's burgeoning music scene. With early critical success and a growing fan base, Hill began touring extensively to promote her first CD release. In 2009 Hill released her second album, "Clumsy Seduction", with a fuller sound due to the addition of a backing band, The Gentlemen Callers.

With more instrumentation, including lead guitar, drums, bass, banjo, piano, pedal steel, accordion and viola, "Clumsy Seduction" represented a new and more mature sound for Hill. Hill began touring to promote "Clumsy Seduction" in the summer of 2009. Hill was raised in an Alaskan village of 98 people, Sleetmute, Alaska, but moved to Palmer, Alaska for high school. Hill played with a successful Anchorage band "Blackbird Productions" and in a duo with Sara Gordon called Pennies and Patches. She went to UAA briefly on a musical scholarship where she was discovered by grammy award winning jazz singer Dee Dee Bridgewater who encouraged her to study music in Boston at the Berklee College of Music.

Hill struggled with the decision, but chose to pursue writing and performing her own music and moving to Portland. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
