Your AMM host’s first introduction to Hilary York, self-described “’70s singer/songwriter stuck in the present,” was with York’s 2006 romantic full-length debut The Moon, in particular the intimate sway of “Out of Sight” and the awe and wonderment in “Any Sweeter” (“…Something like that day / It’s the same light today”). Originally from Houston, York spent time overseas with her musical family as a child, but it was her move to Austin when she first picked up the guitar. She’s been playing shows in the Live Music Capital and points beyond, including NYC and Spain, since 2000.
Today’s featured AMM track “Over the Line” is from the 2021 full-length release 3, produced by The Greyhounds and featuring contributions by a huge local all-star artist list, from Gian Ortiz (Je’Texas) and Mike St. Clair (Pocket Sounds), to Lauren Gurgiolo and Nick Yaklin. And this month, York has a Monday night residency at The 13th Floor, 711 Red River. Catch the show tonight, Monday Feb. 20, starting at 9 p.m.
