“Music is a love child born out of late night impulses and afternoon delights, a brimming mass of potential flowing, a melting pot of ideas and inspirations.”
Hi! I’m Hilda Green, an independent musician and spoken word poet.
I weave poetry to music. Exploring rhythms and soundscapes. Creating a tapestry of sound, feelings, thoughts and ideas.
Originally from South Africa, I currently reside in Australia, regularly travelling to East and South Africa to collaborate with local African artists and musicians.
My music is an eclectic mix of folk, blues, rock and spoken word – with rhythmic African influences.
My live shows are energetic and engaging, combining live musicians and electronic devices to create a rich and uplifting sound. With lots of stage banter, I love to share the stories behind my songs and spoken word performances.
My songs are a collection of stories exploring life, love, everyday experiences and feelings. I write from the heart, hoping to present stories that are relatable and interesting – a grain of common truth in our common existence.
I enjoy seeing the bright side among the bleak. For every dark cloud, I hope to find a shimmering thread of positivity.
