Justice Hill and Nightime Love
Justice Hill writes immersive, introspective, and danceable songs that have already made a sizable splash in Chicago’s music community. Whether it’s his raucous live band Justice Hill and Nightime Love or his solo offerings like 2021’s Chicago Reader-cosigned Room With a View, Hill makes a warm and welcoming first impression. Though the songwriter has been known for being a Berklee-trained piano player and an undeniable frontman, his new EP Happy to Help solidifies his place as a producer and beatmaker. “I spent too much time overthinking about what I want to sound like and meticulously writing,” says Hill. “This past year I just wanted to relax and have fun with music. It’s been so freeing.”

Across four resonant and eclectic tracks, Hill’s distinctive talent as a songwriter shines brightest throughout. The lead single “Don’t Mention It” exudes sunny confidence with bubbly synth bass, a soulful organ, and soaring vocal harmonies. Basically, a sonic distillation of summertime, Hill’s voice feels like a reassuring and hopeful friend. Elsewhere on the epic and groove-heavy “Can U See Me?” Hill creates his most club-ready offering yet. “It’s a little love letter to house songs for Chicago,” he says. “There's part of me that loves just banging beats and dancing. I wanted to show people what I can do production-wise and do four completely different songs that sound like me. I want to show this side of me.”

Happy to Help marks both a creative leap and a marker of newfound artistic freedom for Hill. The EP represents a stopgap between Hill’s last LP and his future full-lengths, a reset for the artist to let go of his anxiety and personal pressures and just make music for fun. “It’s called Happy to Help for a reason,” says Hill. “You wanna be able to put yourself in a song. You want it to sound like it was for you when you hear something. This is a reminder to anyone that life is about doing the right things for the right reasons.”

Basic Comfort
Visions of who you were, who you could have been, who you want to be. Do you know who you are now? Is this discovery an active experience or something to be set aside and let happen? Are you on your own or are we in this together?

Visions is Basic Comfort’s reflection on the answers and outcomes in life that we all seek and seek to avoid. It takes our biggest fears and brightest futures and packages them into a quartet of songs that will leave you on the brink of a new understanding while simultaneously bopping your head and grooving to the beat.
