Ryan Hillier hasn’t normally been one to plant his feet in one spot for long. With roots in Nova Scotia, upbringing in PEI, and a pilgrimage to the West and back, he’s seen – and been – many things. Now based in Moncton, New Brunswick, Hiller crafts honest songs that take turns through folk, country & western, and psychedelia. While in residence at Plan b Lounge (Music New Brunswick Venue of The Year 2011/2012) he shared the stage with countless acts from across Canada of all genres and levels (Dustin Bentall, Devin Cuddy, Al Tuck and Jay Smith, to name a few) and solidified a reputation as a diehard supporter of artistic expression. Having remained just under the surface for the majority of his songwriting career, Hillier is now stepping out to bring his unique and thought-provoking songs to a wider audience.
