Actor, songwriter, traveler, filmmaker and father, Gregory Hill has been in the creative community for over 2 decades.
As a burgeoning actor living in Los Angeles, Greg landed a major role in the Feature film "Operation Finale" starring Ben Kingsley and Oscar Isaac due out in Fall of 2018 for world wide theatrical release by MGM Studios.
His debut album "Naive Love and Innocence" is an intimate, stripped down portrait of the turbulence and tribulation of Gregs personal life, hearkening its, sometimes devastating detail to the canonical poets of the American Songbook. There is a whimsical yet grave honesty within his craft, being both accessible and playful at times, all while maintaining the gravity of the hardest lessons one must endure in life.
Greg is currently working on a second album and is scoring the music for his upcoming film in which he will
write, direct and produce.
His music is available for stream and download on
all major platforms.
CP Por Vida Music Publishing is honored to represent

Dakil is a modern, blues-inspired pop artist from Southern California. Whether he is performing with a full band or live looping hypnotic layers of melodies and beats from scratch in real time, Dakil’s music can captivate an audience of any size by striking a unique combination between both mysterious and totally relatable.
Inspired by his observations and experiences, Dakil’s songwriting varies from the emotionally charged dark blues in “Far from Grey” to the brute wit in “Never Trust a Scorpio,” an upbeat pop song that playfully mocks the stereotypes associated with Astrology, while showcasing a rare ability to insult every person in the room within the span of four minutes. He doesn’t hesitate to cross genres, switching confidently from pop to rap while maintaining a magnetic charisma through his distinctive voice, conversational lyrics, prolific guitar skills, and trademark unpredictability.
Dakil draws inspiration from artists such as John Mayer, Two Door Cinema Club, St. Lucia, Frank Ocean, D’angelo, Ed Sheeran, The Beatles, N.W.A., The Strokes, Fall Out Boy, ABBA, America, Snoop Dogg, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Katy Perry and many more…
