Chris Hillman - The Other Side

Chris Hillman - The Other Side

Fusing folk, alt country, rock and bluegrass, Chris Hillman's long-awaited new album "The Other Side" is set for release June 21st by Sovereign Artists.

Featuring fourteen new recordings including new interpretations of "Eight Miles High," "It Doesn't Matter," "True Love" and "Missing You," "The Other Side" is a stunning collection with true musicianship that emanates from the heart.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991 and bestowed with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Americana Music Association last year, Chris Hillman has long been at the forefront of contemporary folk-rock and country music--from his founding years as a member of The Byrds to The Flying Burrito Brothers to Manassas to Souther, Hillman, Furay to The Desert Rose Band.

On "The Other Side" Hillman merges his folk, country, bluegrass and rock roots and is backed by a stellar group of sidemen (and women!): longtime friend, collaborator "Other Side" producer Herb Pedersen on guitar, banjo and vocals, Sally Van Meter on dobro, Bill Bryson on stand-up bass, Gabe Witcher on fiddle, Skip Edwards on accordion and guest vocalist Jennifer Warnes ("The Water Is Wide").

The release of "The Other Side" will be accompanied by tour dates both domestically and internationally. A complete track listing is as follows:
