Q1. Please Introduce Yourself.

All of us have been involved in music our whole lives. After awhile, we decided to start Hills as a way to play music and have fun.

Currently, we are all studying at different universities. Yet this does not stop us from playing many live shows when we are home.

Q5. What do you value most in music life?
We love everything about music. That said, the connections we are able to make with people who enjoy our music are most valuable to us.

Q6. What was the first tape, record or CD you bought for yourself and when?
