ISLAND Announces Second Round of 2010/ 2011 Hill House Residency

Emerging Musicians & Writers: Applications Due September 15

Since it's opening May 2010, The Hill House Residency has provided eight artists the time and space to dedicate to their craft. The Hill House works to support two fields: emerging songwriters and writers at all stages of their career. Emerging musician Marcus Sigh reflected on the Hill House Residency as if he and partner Melissa Sigh were painters who had canvases and brushes at home, but were missing red and yellow paint (space and time). "ISLAND and the Hill House gave us these, our red and our yellow."
