When Hilary Tipps and Steve Obermiller met, it took no time at all for these Fort Worth, Texas songwriters to fall in love and start their lives together. Yet it was another decade of trying to create life, deal with death and build careers in teaching and nursing before they wrote their first songs together. Now they are fully invested in their passion for songwriting and performing.
Though you might call them Folk or Americana, Tipps and Obermiller are not genre-specific songwriters. Just as they write about every aspect of life and living, they use every style of music to suit the song at hand. In doing so, they take the listener on a ride that will just as easily make you laugh and cry as shake your tailfeather!
Americana Highways states, “Together they captivate the way Delaney & Bonnie once dignified music. An excellent duet with wonderful lyrical ornamentation scattered throughout their repertoire.”
Kelly Kieke, owner of The Tattler in Quitman, Texas says, “Every time Hilary and Steve walk up our 100 year old stairs they end up filling the space with an energy that you can’t ignore. Such amazing songwriters bringing their love for life and music to the stage for all of us to share.”
Whether performing in intimate listening rooms or on festival stages, they bring a connection of energy and charm unique to a couple dedicated to each other, their music and their audience.
