“Some of Us Are Free, Some of Us Are Lost is a relatable, optimistic folk album; and I daresay anyone who doesn’t like this album is a curmudgeon.”
“Bob Hillman is taking his rightful position as one of America’s great songwriters.”
“Hillman’s lyrics are the terrible things I think, but do not say.”
“The audience was also thrilled with…opening act Bob Hillman, a performer 1/3 Bruce Springsteen, 1/3 Bob Dylan, and 1/3 Conan O’Brien.”
“I’ve never heard of this Mr. Bob Hillman but that song about War & Peace is enough to make you want to pick up War & Peace and start reading it.”
“Opening act Bob Hillman was a bit like a male Suzanne Vega with a wackier sense of humor, a less-tentative Elliott Smith or perhaps a folkie Tenacious D His set was good enough to suggest he may be one indie movie soundtrack away from bigger things.”
“No frills, no soft soap, no funny business – this is all meat-and-potatoes, straight from the gut and done with skill.”
“You can tell from the first note of the aptly names “I Think I’ve Taken Enough S*** From You This Year” that this isn’t going to be your normal folk-rock Bob Hillman record.”
“Lyrics don’t get much smarter and funnier than those in the songs by singer-songwriter…Bob Hillman.”
The animated video for the R&B-flavored version of I’m In Love With You has become my most popular video ever, with 2,000+ views in just over one week. And, I animated my wife without telling her! Ask for forgiveness not permission…
