Hello friends!

My name is Hilary Parkin and I am a Los Angeles native releasing my first solo album with the help of a stellar group of musicians and an outstanding production team. I play with several bands in the LA area, including Summer Lovebirds and The Uke Orchestra of the Western Hemisphere. I promise I'm not half as evil as I come across in our silly little video.

 Dean Vivirito and I have written dozens of songs and we are choosing between 10-12 of our favorites to include on the record. We have collaborated with engineer extraordinaire, Jeremy Carberry, and gathered an incredibly talented roster of musicians to play on the album. We cannot wait to get our tunes recorded and heard. Help be a part of this exciting and wonderful new project.

Any pledges of $10 or more will receive a CD and thanks in the liner notes.

Here is a full length video of "Salt Wind", featured in our silly Kickstarter video:
