Formed in the tradition of such legendary duos Flatt and Scruggs and the Osborne Brothers, Tom Feller and Chris Hill are also heavily influenced by classic country greats Buck Owens and Ray Price. Feller's solid, expressive lead vocals blend seamlessly with Hill's razor-sharp tenor vocals, culminating in an exciting new duo, Feller and Hill.
2014 has been another great year for Feller and Hill. In their second year of touring, the boys once again played some of the largest festivals in the United States, as well as Canada. In addition, a trip to Norway, in July 2014, proved to be a highlight of their year. Their sophomore release, "Here Come Feller and Hill...Again!", also helped to drive their success. "The Government Blues", written by Dixie and Tom T Hall, and "Never Ending Song of Love", written by Delaney Bramlett, both reached the number 2 spot on Bluegrass Today's airplay chart, in 2014. "Here Come Feller and Hill...Again!" also reached the number 2 spot on Sirius XM's most played list.
As the boys head into 2015, they will start the year off with a bang and a brand-new all-Gospel project. It will feature the Gospel sounds that Chris and Tom both love. As always, they bring a wide variety of music to this project, so there's sure to be something for everyone. Look for a release date in the coming weeks. Work also continues on a Boys From Indiana tribute project that will cover their entire career, from 1973 through 1995. The project will take shape in 2015 as an online museum/fan club for all things "Boys From Indiana". Members of this website will enjoy exclusive photos, video, previously unreleased material, and the song-of-the-month-series, where Feller and Hill will perform a new version of a classic Boys From Indiana songs. Tom and Chris have gone to great lengths to ensure the music and arrangements are as authentic to the originals, as possible. With over 60 songs planned in this series, there's over 5 years worth of material to look forward to. As Tom's mother (sister of Aubrey, Jerry, and Tom Holt from the Boys From Indiana) said, "I think that sounds more like the Boys' than the Boys' did!". 2015 will also see the launch of Feller and Hill's new record label "Tommy Hillpicker Records". They will release their new Gospel album on this label and may be taking on other artists in the very near future.Check back here often, for updates on all these exciting things.
