Robert Hill Band “makes us want to slam down some moonshine and start a ballroom blitz” GUITAR PLAYER MAG

Robert Hill grew up North Little Rock, Arkansas, and possesses a unique gumbo of musical styles: urban and deep Delta blues, bluegrass, oldtime country, zydeco, ragtime, cowpunk, gospel, even a polka or two in spots. When you mix it all together, they just call it Rock and Roll. Johnny Cash was born there – what else needs to be said?
