Hilary York

This singer-songwriter could be Austin’s next radio sweetheart

Hilary York knows how to create radio-friendly tunes without pandering to the audience. Her songs are accessible enough to be played alongside any regular rotation including John Mayer or Jack Johnson, but they’re devoid of any campy riffs or hooks that scream, “Put me on the radio!” “Out of Sight” begins with a beachside, surfy guitar strum backing the Austin songstress’s deep vocals, which give way to a Spanish-picked bridge that fades back into chorus. And “Radio Love” unites York’s romantic alto with Mirah-influenced “little girl” vocals for a steady, toe-tapping number. See coffee-shop rock at its best today at 10 p.m. Notsuoh, 314 Main.
