Hill is making his recording debut at the age of 77, and, for the first time, his writing will be presented using his own voice: “’The Cowboy Iliad’ reaches back to the spoken tradition of storytelling — designed to have no simple resolution, but a mix of history, nostalgia and speculation. And, of course, we wanted to honor the tradition of the Western… In other words, Bobby Woods and I had a couple of shooters and made a record.” – Walter Hill

Hill began his film career as screenwriter, notably working with filmmakers Sam Peckinpah (The Getaway) and John Huston (The MacKintosh Man). He made his own directorial debut in 1975 with Hard Times starring Charles Bronson and James Coburn. In the years following he directed many films, including The Driver, The Warriors, Southern Comfort, 48 HRS., Streets Of Fire, Red Heat, Johnny Handsome, Last Man Standing, Bullet To The Head, and most recently The Assignment. Hill also served as a co-writer and co-producer on the first three Alien films.

Recently, Hill has written three graphic novels published in Paris by Rue de Sèvres; Balles Perdues, Corps et Âme, and Le Specimen.

The Cowboy Iliad is written by Walter Hill. The album is produced by Bobby Woods with music performed by Les Deux Love Orchestra. The album is now out by Heart Times Coffee Cup Studios and available on Amazon, Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, and everywhere records are streamed and sold.
