Known as “The Red Songbird”, Hilary Roberts is the singer/songwriter industry leaders have called, “the girl with the great look and killer voice.” As a vocalist, Roberts is precise and soulful, with touches of greats like Minnie Riperton and Karen Carpenter, but mixed with something altogether new. As a songwriter, Roberts has a dynamic range, working in multiple genres such as pop, jazz, blues, R&B, and gospel as well as writing all of her own music.
Hilary’s professional career began at the age of ten. Tragically, after a few years of songwriting and touring she lost her voice due to overuse. Doctors told her she would probably never sing again.
After 2 and a half years of speech therapy, vocal rest, and vocal retraining, Hilary was finally able to return to music. She immediately began performing again and went to work on her debut album, “Happy So Bad” with such talents as Dave Wilson (winner of BMI songwriting competition and VH1 songwriter competition) and Aaron Kelly (winner of VH1 songwriting competition), and Brian “Big Bass” Gardner (Grammy Award winning Mastering Engineer.)
Hilary has performed her music all over the United States, Mexico, and Europe. In Texas, Hilary has performed at many events, including, The Crystal Charity Ball, The Beaux Arts Ball, 1st annual Women That Soar Gala benefiting Dress For Success, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Texas (honoring Sherri Lansing, former CEO of Paramount Pictures), World Philanthropy Gala, Helping A Hero Gala, and the press release party for Women That Soar with special guest, Tina Knowles.
Over the past year, Hilary has been working on a music project with Grammy Award winning producer Neal Pogue and co-writing with many talented artists such as Billy Gibbons of ZZ TOP.
