Album Review

The fourth self-released record from Durham, NC, native Willie Hill is definitely his most polished effort to date.

The only track on the album not written by Hill, "Miracle," is given a moving interpretation by Tony Springs, who wrote the tune. Some Love and Peace is a solid indie soul album, highlighted by an impressive group of original songs.
