Award Winning Composer

Edie Hill

Composing is a life-long love. Writing music is always an opportunity to research, learn, muse, reach down deep, and allow inspiration to come from the stuff of life. Edie Hill’s music is fueled by her passions and curiosities.

She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota where she free-lances and runs Hummingbird Press through which all of her works are available for perusal and sale.

“…bold…radiant, deftly crafted…” “…ear-ravishing music…” – Clive Paget, Musical America
