Dillbilly
Dillbilly
Dillbilly (pronouns: they/them) is a genre-queer alt-country singer-songwriter based out of Oakland, CA. Raised in a trailer park in the rural midwest near the Ohio River, Dill grew up surrounded by cornfields and grain silos going jug fishing and playing classical piano. Born to a touring singer/guitarist father, Dill was introduced to the music world at a young age. At 18, they won a piano scholarship that sent them to Berklee College of Music. Feeling uprooted and homesick as a transplant in Boston, Dillbilly dropped out and went back to the Midwest to start a band with their high school friends. Over the past 20 years, they have been performing and touring across the U.S. and Canada releasing 9 full length albums as well as contributions to soundtracks for movies and TV under their birth name, Denise Dill. Most of those releases were self recorded and released. Since moving to the Bay Area in 2015, they renamed their musical self and chose a name that more accurately embodies where they come from, where they draw inspiration, who they collaborate with, and how they identify as a genderqueer person. Now, in the 2018, they are performing as a band and have teamed up with renowned musician and producer Julie Wolf to create their 10th full length record which will be released next year.

Whether the vehicle of the song is guitar, uke, banjo, sax, or piano, Dill’s songwriting is “[…] so strong you can taste it. It is sweet, spicy, savory, organic, homegrown, lots of twists, sometimes complex, sometimes so simple, and oh so very delicious! Their albums makes you want to sit in a rocking chair on a front porch in the fall while eating peach salsa, or wander out deep in the woods without knowing were you’ll end up,” says artist and friend Margaret Belton of San Franscisco, CA.
