The Hills and the Rivers are a Pittsburgh-based street folk family band centered around the Hill siblings and a fluid yet stable collective of musicians. They blend the gritty sounds of the street with sophisticated lyrics and delicate harmonies while finding a balance between indie, folk, punk and pop.

The Hills and the Rivers’ sophomore album, Apocalyptic Dreams, was released in November of 2016. A meditation on how to find hope in a chaotic and apocalyptic world, it featured core members Isaac Hill on octave mandolin and vocals, Heidi Hill on vocals and tambourine, Ian Hill on mandolin and vocals, James Bristol on upright bass, Chris Fazio on violin, Joey Schuller on banjo and Faith Hersey on djembe as well as various musicians recruited from 4th River Music Collective pool. Currently they are in the studio working on their 3rd album, The Fool & The Magician, and will embark on their 3th Annual Winter Tour in January 2018.
