About Arty Hill

 

From Baltimore, MD to Central Texas, Arty Hill packs the bars and dance floors with his unique brand of modern Honky Tonk. He sings with an "'everyman' quality…reminiscent of Johnny Cash." (Vintage Guitar Magazine). His songs - marrying the soul of classic country with the wry storytelling of Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt - have been recorded by the Grammy-nominated Kenny and Amanda Smith Band, Alt-Country pioneers Jason & the Scorchers, Rockabilly Queen Bee Marti Brom, and Austin’s Texas Sapphires, among others. His recordings have topped the FAR (Freeform American Roots) chart, and his songs have appeared in two seasons of "Gun it with Bennie Spies" on the Sportsman Channel and in the 2017 movie "I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore" starring Elijah Wood. Arty is also co-founder of the Hank Williams Songwriting Workshop in Montgomery, AL, and was a 2018 instructor at the Augusta Heritage Center's Classic Country Week in Elkins, WVa. His latest recording, "Live: Church on Saturday Night," is a shack-shaking live recording of Arty and his top notch band, the Long Gone Daddys (Dave Chappell - guitar, Lynn Kasdorf - pedal steel, Ira Gitlin - upright bass, Ed Hough - drums).
