Surrender Hill is a duo out of Sedona, Arizona. The duo started performing together in 2014 and is made up of South African born Sony Recording Artist Robin Dean Salmon and Alaska native, singer songwriter, Afton Seekins.
Surrender Hill has completed their second album, “Right Here Right Now”, with an official release anticipated for early January, 2017. The album was recorded at Eastwood Studios in Nashville, TN. The album features a fantastic lineup of musicians including Paul Griffith on Drums, Eric Fritsch on bass and Mike Daly on pedal steel. Surrender Hill's debut was released in April of 2015 and the duo has toured internationally since. The debut album was recorded in Sedona, AZ with additional recording, mixing and mastering done in Nashville, TN. All of the songs on both albums were penned by Seekins and Salmon.
Surrender Hill's sound is acoustic guitar and vocal driven with lasting hooks and melodies. A comfortable blend of Americana, Country and Roots Rock. The songs are laced with thought provoking, introspective, and at times, intensely personal lyrics, mostly inspired by their life together.
Although this will be Surrender Hill's second release, it will be Robin Salmon's 12th album release. Salmon has spent his life working as a performing songwriter, musician and producer. He has 2 album releases with Epic/Sony Records and 8 albums released on various Indie labels. Salmon has been nominated for 2 New York Music Awards and has performed throughout the United States, Europe and South Africa. Robin's touring and recording career has been extensive and he has worked with a very diverse group of artists such as Rodney Crowell and Cyndi Lauper to Modern English, Al Perkins and Kenny Vaughn.
"Salmon should be the poster boy for the Americana-Roots music movement that can only be described as real and honest music. " - Dan Engler - Kudos
