If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home


I probably got tipped off to Bob Hillman from the great online cd store Miles Of Music. Bob’s new record, his third, If You’d Lived Here, You’d Be Home must have just come out. Bob’s been the opener for a bunch of major acts including Bruce Springsteen, Suzzane Vega and Dave Alvin.

I like everything about these two songs but I guess it all starts with his voice which reminds me mainly of Chris Stamey. Musically this new record fit’s perfectly in the AAA format and is good enough to be played on the XRT’s XPN’s and KBCO’s of the world. Hopefully it will be.

Buy it here.

    I’m from the Denver area, and it always amazes me when people from other parts of the country have heard of KBCO. I guess they’ve had more of an influence than just this local market. Unfortunately, their quality has slipped ever since they were bought by Clear Channel (probably eight years ago), but they’re still better than 90% of the radio stations out there, which I really notice when I travel.

    I do a lot of listening to KCUV now, which sounds a lot like KBCO used to and plays a lot of the kind of music you cover. They’ve got an online feed, although I have yet to figure out how to listen in iTunes.

    No, I don’t work for them. And KBCO still has a place in my heart.

    Opened for Springsteen you say? I’ve never known Bruce to employ opening acts. I’m just sayin’.

    If you’re hip to Miles of Music, then you must have notice the chart-topping status of Matthew Grimm & The Red Smear (#1 for the entire month of May, still Top Ten). So why no love? The guys’s first-rate!

    zNice to see Bob Hillman get some notice. There is no one on the music scene who interests me more than this guy. His latest effort, “If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home” is a great record. Brilliant lyrics, and a fabulous backing band. He should be a friggin star! And his last record, “Welcome To My Century”, is the best thing I’ve heard in years. Hillman is THAT good!
