"Almost Live from Austin Texas"






Welcome to the home page of Austin Musician Jamie Hilboldt.

Growing Up

I grew up in upstate New York (Elmira). I spent many years on the road as a musician finally calling Austin Texas home. I'm a keyboard player,vocalist working in Austin and on the road with various shows.

My brother Lannie( Lannie Hilboldt.com  ) and I moved to Austin in 1984. He's currently the bass player with more shows than I can list here. I have a wonderful wife named Irene (another pianist) who puts up with me most of the time.
