Tosha Hill, one the most promising new artists from the Muscle Shoals area, is unquestionably one of the more unique and untouched talents. Stemming from humble beginnings at an early age, she began her musical journey from performing at local churches and state fairs, to honing her skills in the studios of her hometown.
She exhibits an exceptional presence onstage that leaves the audiences wanting more. Where her father instilled the work ethic and support, she used those tools and ambition to cultivate a sound that is pleasing just as much as it is original.
After passing her first and only audition at Nashville’s renowned venue, “The Bluebird Cafe”, at eighteen she landed her own show shortly thereafter and became one of the venue's regular hosts. She shared that same stage with John Oates (Hall & Oates) and Victoria Shaw in the world’s largest songwriter’s festival, Tin Pan South. Hill and Oates performed their original Philly-ballad entitled, “You Let Me Get Away”.
Tosha is ecstatic about her debut EP release of Forty Miles, a collection of five songs co-written with her father, Billy. Forty Miles was recorded in Gallatin, TN and produced by Arab, Alabama native, Dylan Evers. Forty Miles will be available on streaming platforms April 2, 2021.
All other performances and collaborations include: John Oates (Hall & Oates), John Paul White (Civil Wars), Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, SXSW, Randy Owen (Alabama), Brenda Lee, Spooner Oldham, Donna Jean Godchaux (The Grateful Dead), Shenandoah, Even Stevens, Lynn Langham, Mark Narmore, Byron Hill, John Ford-Coley, Jim Parker, Gordon Kennedy, Jerry Vandiver, Lonestar, and was featured at The Women of Muscle Shoals Music celebrating Spooner Oldham in 2017.
“Tosha's beautiful voice and moving songs transcend musical genres. Call it country, call it folk, call it what you like, it is essentially beautiful music sung with conviction and passion. She is a real one-off.” - Graham Boynton, Graham Boynton Associates
