Hillary Hand & The Roseliers / Press

“Take the style of Feist, throw in the soul of Norah Jones and maybe a dash of Zooey Deschanel’s quirkiness and you might find Hillary Hand. “Paper Doll” blends musical textures seamlessly that provide an aural landscape that is exhilarating to be a part of.”

“The demanding life of Hillary Hand is one that supplies her writing with plenty of inspiration. She’s a traveler, a family woman and through it all manages to contribute alluring music. Oddly enough, the artist never wrote a song before 2011. While she had been playing the piano since the age of 6, it took years to actually convey her emotions in the structure of song. Since, she has been writing and recording with very little breathing room between the two. Hand is what one comes to expect from a singer / songwriter. The whole genre usually emphasizes more on the tone and story of the vocals than the accompanying melodies. The narrative becomes more vivid and emotional with the approach, grappling at heartstrings with a soft ferocity. Her newest EP “Paper Doll,” was released this past summer on Unboxed Records, and is a delicate work of subtle harmonies with stark contrasts in instrumentation. It’s a soulful listen that lies in the cohesive boundaries of the singer / song”
