HILARY VELTRI

Born and raised in a small town outside of Pittsburgh, PA, Hilary has always been a small town girl with big time dreams.  She started playing guitar at the ago of 12 and soon became a self-taught keyboard player and songwriter.  Hilary studied Music Education with a voice concentration at Duquesne University’s Mary Pappert School of Music from 2009-2011, before moving on to run her own fitness business.  Before long, she was itching to get back into the music scene and follow her dreams of performing music and making people smile!

Hilary re-located to Northern Virginia in August 2014 and took a brief performing hiatus to focus on some family goals.  She returned to the acoustic gigging game in August of 2015 performing in local venues.  Since her return to the live music scene, she has been able to gig frequently and build a regular following in Northern Virginia.  Most recently, she has been songwriting with Grammy-winning writers and coming into her own stylistically.  Her influences are incredibly varied and her style transcends generations and genre barriers with something new every week.

She can be found singing and playing your favorite acoustic covers from Bob Dylan through Beyonce here in Northern Virginia.
