iamhill has recently released a new single entitled “Mine” which is off of her newly released EP, Give It a Rest.

When asked about the new single, iamhill responds,

“‘Mine’ is a beat that my boy Freddy B made as an experimental jam back in 2007. I dug it out of his archives and toplined it. The song is about running from a possessive relationship. I’m always bothered by people calling their lover “mine”. I will never belong to another person, nor will anyone ever belong to mine. True love can and should feel like total freedom.”

Take a moment to listen to the track below, and find out more about this talented Canadian artist.


Care to introduce yourself to our readers?

Hey, I am hill. I’m a Canadian music writer, producer, and musician. I’ve been making music my whole life. I play four instruments and produce in ProTools.

Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.

I make experimental pop/r&b/alternative whatever you’d like to call it. I’d emphasize the “experimental” part but I’ve also finally reached a point where I am very direct in the creation of my own music. But the one sentence I say more than any other in the studio is “it needs to be weirder”.

Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?

I’ll be playing some stripped down solo showcases on my vintage Wurlitzer for Red Gorilla fest this year – March 15,16 and 17 in Austin Texas. My full band setup feels more like a rock show but manages to stay true to my recordings. Performing live is my favourite thing to do. I’ve spent more time on stage in my life than I’ve spent sleeping.

If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?

Right now I’d say, “Give it a Rest”, the title track from my album.

Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?

Okay, I love Justin Bieber. But to be real, I’m a big fan of Scenic Route to Alaska and Dani LeRose.
