Hilary Grist

Art-pop-torch-folk songstress, Hilary Grist, is on a musical roll. Her third and most recent album, Imaginings, sees her commanding alto travel seamlessly from captivating wonder to driving indie pop to carefree dixieland romp. Released to a sold out crowd at Vancouver’s Cultch Theatre last September, the past year has found Hilary enchanting audiences on tour across Canada, making appearances at festivals such as NXNE in Toronto, Edge of the World in Haida Gwaii and Pop Okanagan and sharing the stage with artists like Danny Michel, C.R. Avery and The Odds.

Hilary's poignant, free spirited songs have been adored on campus radio from coast to coast and have been featured on many CBC Radio programs like DNTO, North By Northwest, as well as Lana Gay's ehList on CBC Radio3. Her music has also found eager new listeners south of the border through the iTunes Singer-Songwriter Spotlight in the U.S. Hilary has garnered many TV placements for her songs including shows like Degrassi (MuchMusic), Endgame (CTV) and Go To Gal (CHEK TV).
