One day in Saskatoon: country singer Erin Hill

The talented singer-songwriter dishes on her favourite food and drink destinations in her hometown of Saskatoon

Born and raised in Medstead, Saskatchewan, country artist Erin Hill began developing as a songwriter at an early age. Although her sound is sprinkled with inspiration from recognizable genres like classic country and folk, Hill’s music delivers the total package, maneuvering between intimate, soulful melodies and twangy, upbeat euphonies that you can’t help but dance along with. 

In addition to several Saskatchewan Country Music award nominations, Hill’s impressive resume boasts a number of memorable of live performances, including internationally-recognized competitions like The World Championships of Performing Arts and The Big Talent Showcase in California. 

She is currently spending most of her time at Bart McKay Productions in Saskatoon working on an upcoming album. The album itself was written entirely by Hill, further showcasing her blossoming depth and maturity as an artist. 

In between recording sessions, Hill keeps busy by performing as many live sets as she can. You can catch the emerging artist at our next installation of The Blue Jay Sessions on February 15 at the Oak Tree Tavern in Calgary’s Kensington neighbourhood. 

We recently caught up with the up-and-coming country talent, who filled us in on all of her favourite food and drink destinations in her current homebase of Saskatoon.

Bluegrass Brunch at Bon Temps on Sundays. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is so cool! They have live bluegrass music set up in the middle of the restaurant and it’s always so good. If you ever go, you have to order The Cure (if you like a bit of spice), I order it every time and it’s so delicious.

The food at Drift is just amazing; it’s also beautiful and bright. In the summer, the patio is really nice and has a great view.

Odd Couple is one of my favourite places to go. It’s an Asian fusion place and the food is so, so good.  I’ve ordered several things off the menu and have never been disappointed. It’s also a plus that the staff is always super friendly.

The Rook & Raven. It’s a nice cozy place to go for a date night downtown.
