Kotomi (Lauren Hillman) is a Los Angeles based composer, artist, and producer. A classically trained pianist and self-taught producer, her sound palate ranges from industrial and gritty to ambient and orchestral.
As an artist, her brand of ethereal pop finds its distinct voice through her unique sense of melody, and has been spotlighted on Spotify's New Music Friday, BBC6, Sirius Radio, Pitchfork, SPIN, and Gorilla vs. Bear where her songs have been compared to the likes of Chairlift and early Madonna.
She composes music for film and television, having recently contributed music to ESPN 30 for 30 documentary, "One and Not Done", Amazon Series “First Five Minutes”, HBO's "Vice News", and ABC's "The Bachelor", to name a few.
Kotomi is her mother's Japanese name, which translates to mean the beauty of old cities.
