Dick Cooper Party Spring 2013 Tosha Hill

Dick Cooper Party Spring 2013 Tosha Hill

Alabama Music goes to Shoal Creek near Florence, Alabama to attend the Dick Cooper Party on April 28, 2013.
Tosha Hill, a Country and Americana singer/songwriter/musician, was born to parents Billy and Tina Hill in Florence, AL. Raised in a family-owned furniture manufacturing business, with three older brothers, there never was a dull moment. Music was a heritage to be kept in the Hill household, passed down from her grandparents, who were sharecroppers and front porch singers. At age nineteen, she has had quite an amazing musical journey to say the least. From singing her first song in a church of fifteen members at the age of twelve to performing for Alabama's Gov. Robert Bentley and the Alabama House of Reps., along with Reps. Phil Williams and Mike Ball from Huntsville, AL, at the age of seventeen. Tosha has also had the honor to perform at the Randy Owen Celebrity Classic for three consecutive years, alongside Nashville greats: Megan Mullins, John Bohlinger, Wade Hayes, Chuck Tilley, Steve Peffer, and John Howard. Tosha has also opened and performed with Travis Wammack, Randy Owen, John Oates, Donnie Fritts and The Decoys, Billy Ryan, Aaron Wilburn, The Martins, The Blackwood Brothers Quartet , and Ed Hill (Member of the Stamps Quartet). Currently, Tosha plays at local and out of town venues with her brothers Josh and Caleb, and enjoys writing with her dad. "It's always exciting to write with dad. We have a certain chemistry and the majority of the time can fill in each other's sentences." Her influences are widely diverse, ranging from Janis Joplin to Emmylou Harris. She is also a member of the praise team at her home church, Christ Chapel, in Petersville, AL.
