Revival House Theatre

The Revival House is a platform to celebrate the experience of going to the movies. Our mission is to foster a community through the shared experience of film and presenting programs that are unique, entertaining, and fun. Within the walls of the historic Milton Theatre, we hope to provide monthly screenings equally dedicated to cinema and community.

Cliff Hillis

On the heels of 2014's "Song Machine," which garnered solid Triple A radio airplay on 88.5 WXPN and Sirius XM's "The Loft" as well as critical praise from Goldmine magazine, songwriter Cliff Hillis has released his new EP "Love Not War" digitally worldwide March 18th. The EP will be followed by a red vinyl 45 release of "Love Not War" b/w "The Buddha's Belly" April 8th.

The seven song EP features an eclectic mix of strong melody and thoughtful lyrics. The title track "Love Not War" gives a nod to the sound and sentiment of 1970's era FM radio while sounding fresh and new, courtesy of the lush musical backing of Patrick Berkery on drums (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Pernice Brothers, Wesley Stace), Jason Loughlin on guitar (Amos Lee, Rachel Yamagata), Greg Maragos (Quickstep John, The Everthere) on bass and keyboards, Shelley Weiss on violin and David Kershner on trumpet.

The EP also features guest performances by guitarist Mike Molnar (The Bellfuries) on the song "The Buddha's Belly", as well as backing vocals from singer songwriter Dan Bern on the track "Too Many Songs", which was co-written by Cliff Hillis & Dan Bern.

In support of the release, Hillis will be performing a number of East Coast shows solo and with his live band "The Forward Thinkers" as well as pursuing a targeted Triple A radio campaign.

Hillis' work has recently garnered praise from notable songwriters:

"Cliff is taking some chances while also delivering some solid pop production, the stuff you'd expect from a big fan of big pop. it's a blast to listen to." - Mike Viola, acclaimed recording artist, producer, and composer

"You know who's really good? Cliff Hillis." - Rhett Miller, singer/songwriter, Old '97s
