Amber Hills (formerly Silent Spring) has spent the last 3 years writing songs, working on their sound and touring Western Canada. They recently finished their debut album "Up is Down, Left is Right" with renowned producer Colin Stewart (Dan Mangan, Black Mountain, New Pornographers). Amber Hills is excited to bring their brand of crowd pleasing rock and roll across Canada this summer.
Formed by Devan Christodoulou, Amber Hills was created as an outlet for his musings on the world around him. With an introspective eye on love, life, and disaster, Devan paints a picture of mankind with his words. "Ultimately the songs are set in fictional landscapes, left open for interpretation" says Devan, "and once a song is done, it's not mine to keep. It now belongs to the listener, and hopefully they will discover their own message through our music".
Supporting Devan is Gunn Park who brings a bass style that owes as much to acts like Coldplay as it does to Stone Temple Pilots. Gunn has the ability to analyze each song and provide it with its own unique heartbeat. Assisted with organic cadence and lead line alchemy, the Amber Hills release "Up is Down, Left is Right" is an exciting statement by a band poised to take the next step in their careers.
The soulful bass lines of Gunn meet with the tapestry that Devan's vocals and spirit have set to create a sound that is truly unique; truly special; truly Amber Hills.
