Dan Bern
Dan Bern has released some two dozen studio albums, EPs, and live recordings since his first CD on Sony/Work in 1997. Either fronting various bands or as a solo performer, he is convincing, funny and timely, with an unassuming tip of the hat to the spirits of the past greats, all while sounding fresh and original. Dan’s songs pack a punch, and are engaging and often cinematic.

Bern’s singular songwriting has led to work on such projects as the Judd Apatow features Walk Hard—the Dewey Cox Story and Get Him to the Greek. His songs have appeared in countless TV shows and independent films, been covered by The Who’s Roger Daltrey, and lately, comprise all the songs for Amazon Prime’s The Stinky and Dirty Show, a cartoon for youngsters, now in its second season.

In addition to the music, Dan Bern is a prolific painter, with works hanging in The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and The Bobby Feller Museum. He has published several books, the latest being a collection of poems, “encounters,” which recount his real-life encounters with, among others, Wilt Chamberlain, Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Carter and Hunter S. Thompson.

Exciting new projects in the works include new recordings with his much beloved band, “The International Jewish Banking Conspiracy” (IJBC).

On the heels of 2014's "Song Machine" which garnered solid Triple A radio airplay on 88.5 WXPN and Sirius XM's "The Loft" as well as critical praise from Goldmine magazine, songwriter Cliff Hillis is releasing his latest single, "Love Not War."

"Love Not War" gives a nod to the sound and sentiment of 1970's era FM radio while sounding fresh and new, courtesy of the lush musical backing of Patrick Berkery on drums (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Pernice Brothers, Wesley Stace), Jason Loughlin on guitar (Amos Lee, Rachel Yamagata), Greg Maragos on bass and keyboards, Shelley Weiss on violin and David Kershner on trumpet.

Sharing the same title as his upcoming 2016 EP, "Love Not War", the song will be available digitally worldwide on Friday November 13th.

In support of the song's release Hillis will be performing a number of East Coast shows and pursuing a targeted Triple A radio campaign.

Hillis' work has recently garnered praise from notable songwriters:

"Cliff is taking some chances while also delivering some solid pop production, the stuff you'd expect from a big fan of big pop. it's a blast to listen to." - Mike Viola, acclaimed recording artist, producer, and composer

"You know who's really good? Cliff Hillis." - Rhett Miller, singer/songwriter, Old '97s
