One of Steve's earliest compositions, originally written in 1973 on an acoustic guitar - here it is in a new arrangement recorded in January 2017:
Steve continues to have the honour to collaborate with Sally Oldfield in making new youtube videos for her, here is the fifth one which is for her bitter sweet song “Morning of my Life”:
''I am honoured to have the opportunity to collaborate with Steve Hillman and receive the benefit of his skill and sensitivity in
creating beautiful (Youtube) videos for my music. I find his music deeply inspiring with its vast array of influences from ancient mysticism to modern film music.
He is an intrepid explorer of inner worlds and has the talent and technical skill to bring his visions into reality through his alchemy of music and imagery over many decades.
A personal thank you Steve for bringing out the hidden colours of my songs!
Blessings to you from Sally Oldfield'
