The Hillary Reynolds Band

The Hillary Reynolds Band, fronted by award-winning songwriter Hillary Reynolds, is a pinnacle of innovation in today’s pop music. The powerhouse band makes its trademark sound by fusing tight vocal harmonies, the polish of cutting-edge production technique, and traditional acoustic instruments for a diversity of sound unachievable in other realms. The entire band makes for proud alumni of Berklee College of Music. Together since 2009, they have released two albums, First Loves and Since September. Their singles, “Leave No Trace” and “Good As New” made it to the front page of reddit.com. They have toured the nation turning heads in famous venues and halls like Chicago’s Elbo Room, NYC’s The Bitter End, Sullivan Hall, Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2, Boston’s the Middle East, Berklee Performance Center, Cafe 939, the Northeast Pennsylvania Bluegrass Festival, the Blue Plate Special on WDVX Knoxville, the EAA AirVenture air show in Oshkosh, Green Bay’s Meyer Theatre, and Fox 11 morning show Good Day Wisconsin. With the recent loss of Reynolds's mother, Trina, to a long battle with breast cancer, HRB has no reservations for promoting and playing for charities. This includes the Trina Fund – a travel fund in the name of Trina Reynolds available to those with breast cancer to go seek second opinions on their diagnoses, and therefore hope.

Growing up in a lively family of seven, the young Hannah Christianson learned to perceive the world and art in her own unique way. Christianson is currently a music therapy and notable songwriting major at the world-renowned Berklee College of Music. She was selected as a winner in Berklee’s prestigious Performer/Songwriter Contest and annual Songwriting Competition. She has also performed in the Best of Berklee’s Songwriters Showcase. Her song “Let’s Be Frisbees” won the Perfect Pitch contest in Fall 2010. “A good mix of sweetness and pop sensibility, with an engaging voice that sounds like fine wine,” Peter Swenson, director of social media, CD Baby. In summer 2013, she will tour with the Arrow and the Bow in Ireland and Scotland.

From Minneapolis, Sarah Walk now lives in Boston and attends Berklee College of Music where she is a songwriting major and touring artist. With a distinct voice, her music is aggressive and complex both rhythmically and lyrically. Walk's music leaves listeners believing they have “just seen one of those rare moments of witnessing a breathtaking new talent about to blossom." She has been performing professionally for over six years in many different cities including Minneapolis, Eugene, Boston, and New York City.
