Acclaimed and award winning composer/pianist Lisa K. Hilton debuts new compositions from her 20th release, Escapism.

Escapism follows Hilton’s musical explorations to savor uplifting moments and abundant beauty in refreshing ways.  Escapism includes these song titles: Hot Summer Samba, Meltdown, Another Everyday Adventure, Too Hot, On A Clear Day, Mojave Moon, Zero Gravity, Escape Velocity Blues, 29 Palms, and Utopia Cornucopia.

Panoramic vistas…emotionally evocative… seductive.
