The members of the Chill House Band (Hillary Smith, Jim Casey, Milo Jaramillo, Glenn Kostur and JD Davis) bring years of experience performing professionally in New Mexico and Texas. The band provides an outstanding musical experience, including popular dance music, smooth/contemporary jazz, soul, R&B, and blues.
With a deep soulfulness rooted in the Gospel-driven churches of her youth, a classically trained vocal instrument thats a natural wonder, and a God-given instinct for swinging a lyric, vocalist Hillary Smith has been electrifying audiences across the United States for more than 30 years. A native of Hobbs, New Mexico, Hill first made her mark in the 80s with gutsy performances of rockin' blues and funk, and she's fronted a number of popular bands in the Albuquerque/Santa Fe area over the years. Chief among the early groups was the multi-award-winning Strictly Taboo, whose debut album, Playing with Fire, got heavy rotation on local and international radio. Smith has performed with hONEyhoUSe, Chris Dracup and Soul Kitchen, Hill and the Brethren and the Albuquerque Jazz Orchestra.
Ron Crowder is an award-winning singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. An Albuquerque native, Ron has traveled the world as a touring and recording musician, sharing the stage with acts as diverse as Three Dog Night, The Persuasions and Fantastic Negrito, among many others.
Ron is also the owner of InCrowd Studio in Albuquerque, winning numerous awards (eg: Tellys, Silver Microphones, Addys, American Marketing Association) as a writer, producer, recording engineer and composer for TV and radio commercials, as well as short films for clients throughout the U.S. and Canada. In addition to his work in the recording studio, he performs regularly in the Southwestern U.S. In 2020, The Ron Crowder Band, which features an all star lineup of some of New Mexico's finest musicians, was awarded second place in the Best Band category of the annual Santa Fe Reporter Best Of issue. Ron was also recently honored with the awards for Best Recording Engineer and Best Pop Song at the 2020 New Mexico Music Awards for his song "This is the Moment."
