Hill took about 15 years and a few busted romances to create the songs that make up her band Starling Glow's self-titled debut album, a blend of modern pop musical styles that range from pop/rock to dance and indie. Starting with a club floor single, "We Are Infinite," a Dave Aude remix that recalls similar anthems like Gloria Gaynor's disco smash "We Will Survive" or Lady Gaga's "Just Dance," Hill takes flight like the birds she often references in her songs. The remix reached the top 20 on the Billboard Dance Club Chart in just a short time after it premiered.
A multi-instrumentalist, Hill grew up in Orange County surrounded by music—her mom played piano, her dad guitar and older sister piano, pipe organ and drums, while they all sang. "They told me early on, if I don't pick up an instrument, they would kick me out of the family," she laughs. "I was handed a bass at 10 years old and told, 'It's easy to play and you're not very coordinated.'"
