Stephen Hill

President, Producer, Art Director and Host of Hearts of Space

Created Music from the Hearts of Space in 1973 as a weekly three-hour local radio program on KPFA-FM in Berkeley, CA. National syndication of a one hour version of the program began in 1983 and grew to a network of over 290 NPR affiliate stations. Stephen and original partner Anna Turner then launched Hearts of Space Records in 1984. After over 150 releases, the label was sold to Valley Entertainment in 2001. As a producer Hill has created thousands of radio broadcasts and dozens of record albums and soundtracks, including an Academy Award-winning feature length documentary. In addition to hosting and directing the production of the radio program, Hill directed A&R for the HOS record labels, and has served as in-house Creative Director of packaging graphics, print, the HOS web site and mobile apps. He continues to produce the radio program with Steve Davis, produces new compilations for Valley Entertainment/Hearts of Space, and works on the Hearts of Space Archive—an Internet streaming service for ambient, space-creating and contemplative music from around the world and across the centuries.
