Artist Portrait

Willie Hill


R&B/Soul

Willie Hill led a sort of wandering life until his father settled in Albany, GA in the 50s. He followed his dad’s musical talent, singing in local churches and in talent shows from a very early age. An encounter with Sam Cooke cemented his desire to be an entertainer, and by the mid-60s was touring with a band called the Sounds Of Soul. Although no recordings were issued either with the group or as a solo act, he did attend sessions in Macon and Memphis with Stax musicians and vocalists, after a long time in Europe with the US armed forces. In fact it wasn’t till Hill hooked up with Anthony Fontaine that he got his name onto vinyl for the first time with two singles on the tiny Molly-Jo concern from his home town of Albany.
