About Lisa Hilton

A lyrical and harmonically engaging pianist, Lisa Hilton is known for her enveloping original pieces and cover tunes that touch upon acoustic post-bop, blues, classical, and contemporary jazz. Along with music, the West Coast native is a trained fine artist and often draws inspiration from painting, sculpture, and nature for her compositions. Following her initial emergence in the late '90s, Hilton built a strong following, moving between atmospheric solo piano albums like 2007's After Dark and ambitious small-group dates such as 2017's Escapism. She has continued to expand her approach, working with a bevy of top-tier players including Larry Grenadier, Christian McBride, Jeremy Pelt, J.D. Allen, and others. Hilton has also showcased her trio with Luques Curtis and Rudy Royston on albums like 2020's More Than Just Another Day and 2021's Transparent Sky, before expanding to a quartet for 2022's Paradise Cove.
