2015 sees the 30th Anniversary of the release of “Evocations” & “Ashtar”. In celebration of that and in remembrance of Linda, this is the first of several planned videos beginning with “Ancient Dawn” from Linda & Steve’s “Ashtar” album, comprising photographs taken in 1984 when the music was recorded. Linda Hillman: Improvised flute. Steve Hillman: Synth tambura & live recording of bird song. All artwork, photographs & music by Steve & Linda Hillman.
After a nine year hiatus finally a new album by Steve has been released!
Following on from 2006's “The World Over” this new material once again draws its inspiration from the classic period of John Barry’s early Bond scores. Now with the added dimension of lyrics from Dave Rees on several tracks the album also features the highly rare "Sunny Girl" version of John Barry’s 1967 classic “The Girl With The Sun In Her Hair” which was only ever released as a rare mono flexi disc.
Please go to the "Live for Today" page for info and insights into its creation.

It is with great sadness to report that Linda passed away recently. She had always been there on so many levels right from the very beginning in the 70’s to the current day to encourage and finance me to pursue music and without her I could not have achieved what I have.
